Not play the video



  • I don't know way but the browser not open the tour video of the slack website... [url=https://slack.com/is]this page[/url] This works well in the rest of the browsers.



  • Works for me using Snapshot 1.0.283.8 on Win 7 !?

    As you give no info of your system, I can only assume that you should update. You can find the snapshots here:

  • My already in the latest version…. The diference is I'm using the OS X El Capitan.

  • btw… the Facebook videos also does not work.

    And you're using 64-bit.

    However, Snapshot 1.0.288.3 is now available - has some fixes for videos (Youtube etc) so worth you trying??



  • @TbGbe:

    worth you trying??

    It fixes the regression introduced the last week with the experimental h264 support.

    So yes, more than worth.



  • Yap… It is working :D





  • Still exists a bug related with the video… You can check it on the last change log...

    VB-9418 Regression: Some sites (YouTube) no longer offer an appropriate video format (e.g. WebM or Flash): the fix breaks the usage of alternative ffmpeg lib for proprietary media. We will look into this again
    


  • Thank you :)

    That list is the list of FIXED bugs.

    The site linked likely doesn't offer a flash video bit just the h264 html5 counterpart.

    And vivaldi cant't play them for now.

    That's not a regression like VB-9418, is a (well known) missing feature.



  • Doesn't work in Twitter or Facebook either, and it seems to only be basic mp4 videos. YouTube videos obviously works, and they use HTML. Twitter doesn't use flash, I noticed.

  • Check your version… update for the last snapshot (1.0.288.3)... that will work again ;)



  • Depending on the version and things I do not understand: sometimes Vimeo videos do not work with a new Vivaldi-Version, sometimes they do. Sometimes only the aduio is played, sometimes not.

    I have no Flash on my computer, so I rely on the browser to play video and audio.

    Has that been fixed since you wrote that?

    I see https://www.youtube.com/html5 claiming that Vivaldi supports H.264, and http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html seems to confirm Vivladi plays all of H.264/MP4, WebM and Ogg/Theora.

    However, the HTML5 video at https://www.youtube.com/embed/jWZ7Q6U2x-c doesn't seem to work for me.



  • There is a problem with mp4/mp3 (H.264) on older Windows (and other?) machines. Vivaldi claims to support them (by testing with Javascript on the <video>element's canPlayType() method) but then just does not load the source file or play it. I'm trying to find something to test for the older, non-supported, operating systems, so that a fall-back to Flash can work.</video>

    On my Windows 10 all work finen, even YT – plays H264-MP4, Webm.

    Your OS is not too old?
    The OS you use has to the appropriate codec installed? For Win f.ex. there are some codec packs which gives you teh ability to play videos.
    You use the last Snapshot?



  • For me it's an old OS (Windows XP - yes, but I have to support it for a bit longer). I'm using the latest 1.0.303.37.

    I accept that it's not always possible to retro-fit things. I'd be happy for older systems just to report "NO" for the <video>element method .canPlayType() - then my web sites will fallback to Flash automatically.

    It works fine with Chrome.

    Or can I replace ffmpeg.dll on older systems?</video>

    The problem with XP and canPlayType() already known.
    Currently as i heard from developers a workaround is not known.

    Its not easy to detect which codecs can be used, not even for Chromium, Firefox or Opera 12.
    canPlayType often show propably. Even on Windows 10.
    You cant trust on canPlayType() :(
