Opera 12 flash not working!

 9:25 pm on Aug 26, 2012 (gmt 0)

since opera updated to version 12, flash is no longer working - works fine on chrome and firefox.

(just get a message, on youtube, iplayer, etc saying that to view content need to install the latest version of flash)

been searching quite a lot have found a few people posting this problem but no solutions ...

has anyone here any idea of what to do! (or try at least)

obviously have tried to install flash multiple times.

Hi there topr8,

I just fired up my old "XP pc", upgraded Opera from 12 to 12.01
and updated the "Flash" plug-in-version to 11.4.402.265.

My tests, using the "BBC iplayer", were problem free.

yes, that is the exact same set-up birdbrain ... thanks.

although sadly not problem free here, the flash player just doesn't seem to be recognised at all.

thanks for your time in testing it out.

i'll just have to uninstall and then reinstall flash to see if that works.

Hi there topr8,

have you checked "Opera's Preferences" settings?

If you click the "Avanced" tab, then the "Contents"
option on the left, you will find a checkbox entitled...
"Enable plug-ins"

...which, obviously, will need a little tick in it. ;)

yes thanks birdbrain, good call - although that was my first place to look - did that!

still can't resolve the issue, it happened when opera updated to 12.01, before that it worked fine!

Hi there topr8,

Well, I've exhausted all my ideas. :(

If no one else comes up with a suggestion you could try, as a last resort...

Hi there topr8,

I have just noticed that Opera 12.02 is now available for download.

Perhaps that will resolve your problem. ;)

Does someone know how tro fix this ?

Win xp pro Downloaded the latest opera 9.5 and the latest Flashplayer 9.0, It doesn't want to work if i step down to opera 9.24 no probs

I've had the same problem, on occasion.
Can't help fix it, I'm afraid, but it did 'go away'.
For me, the problem surfaced when I upgraded Flash to a new version, not before!
In fact, Flash worked on some sites and not on others.
So, I put this down to a Flash problem, rather than Opera, but I'm not so savvy on these things.....
I tend to hold off on Flash upgrades now.
