System: Xubuntu 14.04.3
Browser: Opera 33.0.1990.43

I installed Flash using this way.

I'm okay with Flash. However, whenever I open up a Youtube video, HTML5 player is blocked by Flash. Then it does not change to Flash player in the first attempt and stays like below:

The Image

I reload the page, sometimes it changes to Flash player in the second attempt if I'm lucky, but I usually need to reload page a couple of times.

This is a nightmare if the player is embedded. It does not even change to Flash player if it's not embedded.

So, is there a way to:

  • keep HTML5 player where it is available or...
  • completely change to Flash player, even in embedded ones

Actually, I was wandering around Opera extensions. So I found this extension to get over this issue. It simply forces Opera to use Flash over HTML5 player and works in embedded players.

I wanted to answer as a solution just in case. If there appears another solution for HTML5 player, I'll try that with pleasure.

  • Since there's no further answer for a week, I choose this as valid answer. – Eray Erdin Nov 6 '15 at 11:45
