CNN Always Hangs

Title says it all. I can't be on CNN for more than 2-3 minutes before Vivaldi hangs. And I need task manager to shut it down. All tabs freezes + program itself. Anyone else having this problem?
@genrabbit It looks like a site problem to me.
The video plays, but flickers rapidly. I see the same on Opera 56, but not on Firefox.
Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit build 17134.320 • Snapshot 2.2.1373.4 (64-bit)

Same problem. Only since one of the last Vivaldi updates

Same here. The CPU will spike on a page with video. If I can manage to get the tab closed it will return to normal, otherwise I have to kill it.
For me with 2.2 Stable and 2.3 Snapshot a CNN video shows after scroll the in-page-player, crashes and resets Vivaldi for a few seconds to complete black. Sometimes complete Vivaldi crashes.
See video "Video smear attempt on Ocasio-Cortez backfires" on
@Gwen-Dragon I see the blacking out, including another video player on my secondary monitor, but no crash. After a few seconds the video plays just fine in fullscreen or window mode.
@Gwen-Dragon with uBlockO and Privacy Badger i do not get such crash.
Seems the ad running at start of video causes this.
FYI: I reported a bug where Vivaldi crashes on some videos after using up to 8 GB RAM for GPU process.
