Vimeo and other flash sites on Mac OS



  • Hello! I installed Vivaldi yesterday to try it out, and so far seems very promising!. :) One problem that im having is with video sites as Vimeo. It is also happening with other sites that use flash to stream. When i try to watch a Video I see the following message: [attachment=359]ScreenShot2015-01-28at10.50.11.png[/attachment] Any Ideas on how to fix it? Firefox and Chrome are installed also, and working fine.. Thanks! Attachments: [img]https://forum.vivaldi.net/uploads/attachments/17779/ScreenShot2015-01-28at10.50.11.png[/img]



  • Hello,

    I download Vivaldi today and video works without a problem. Do you have installed flash player in your PC?



  • Thanks for your quick reply!
    Yes. I have flash installed.. this is what it says on firefox:

  • **Interesting. Unfortunately, I use Microsoft Windows 7. Surely there is someone with Mac OS and advise you.

    Good luck;)**



  • Vimeo doesn't use flash as for its main video player, just go to the front page while your signed-out and you'll see



  • Please try the PPAPI version of flash which is available at adobe. It worked fine for me on Windows 7 and 10. After installing Vivaldi is now showing all flash videos so far.
    Since this is available for Mac OS too, I would give it a try.

    I thought that was the issue, because youtube with html5 works great .. and Im having issues also with the embedded videos on a local news paper ( i need to click on "watch in youtube" to make it work..)

    I installed PPAPI and everything works now! Thanks!
