Daily Motion Videos stopped working in Vivaldi 2.5.1525.41 (Stable channel) (64-bit)



  • Now in addition to YouTube's Movies not working in the previous and current version 2.5.1525.41 - Daily Motion Videos no longer play as of today's update.

    Unlike the YouTube Movies death in which not even the page images show - in the Daily Motion Videos death, the pages images show up like regular, as does the videos thumbnails - but clicking the video does not play the video - attempted it multiple times - yesterday and this morning since I watch Daily Motion every day.
    All Flags are reset to default, Checked with all extensions turned off, Flash is enabled, Java is enabled, Tried turning off Vivaldi/Chromium built in Ad Blocker, tried refreshing and restarting browser, checked Hardware Acceleration, all Graphic Hardware Drivers are current0_1557914299582_Capture.JPG - Nope! Nothing!!

    Must be a Windows 8 issue on your side, i can watch the video on Windows 10. You may wait until an other user with Windows 8 can test this.

    What happens if you rename the folder C:\Vivaldi Standalone\User Data\Default to C:\Vivaldi Standalone\User Data\Default_BAK and retest?



  • Working OK here. Does this video play for you?

    @rdreammaker sorry for the trouble and thank you for letting us know about it. We just release a new minor update, is this behavior still happening on your machine?

    Thank you Galle!
    I decided to run a second Stand Alone Folder just for testing new updates before I run the update on my primary Vivaldi Stand Alone.
    Just tested the new update on the second stand alone and Daily Motion Videos, YouTube videos and the old .PDF printing issues are all gone.
    Oddly however, the original Stand Alone "primary" browser, which I have now run the update on, still has the Daily Motion Video and YouTube Video issues that started with the previous update.
    Really, really strange, even from a beta testing stand point. So, I'll be switching over to the fresh install, since apparently something changed between the previous two updates that broke the original primary one.
    Since I have full sync enabled, its not much of an issue going with the full fresh install. I'd recommend anyone coming into similar issues, set-up sync and do a fresh install, since that seems to be what has worked.

    Running as of this post:

    @rdreammaker Thanks a mil for sharing these helpful insights. It's very awkward indeed. In case this issue happens again in your "Primary" browser as well as in your fresh install, please file a bug report so we can try to reproduce it and fix it. ­čÖé
