YOU TUBE VIDEO AND FLASH PLAYER GLITCHES AND OPERA 11.x PLUG INS
Sunday, January 8, 2012 10:44:15 PM
More Flash Video problems and Solutions can be found if you read about the on going issues with Adobe Flash and You Tube Help Forums.
Also some Plug-Ins with Opera can cause conflicts.
The Real Player is known to cause "glitches" or "freezes" with Flash even though you might be using Real Player for the Flash video downloads.
Even Adobe mentions this when you Install a new version of Flash that
it (Real Player) might freeze videos.
Best thing to do is to "Disable" All Real Player Plug-Ins in Opera, and shut off any browser interface or streaming issue in the Real Player settings and Preferences itself.
Another thing I noticed was after installing a Fresh New OPERA 11.62 in its own folder and a single (USB) User Install and no other plug-ins and extensions other than the Flash Player, that it worked better and faster.
Also another tip is to Uncheck "Cache Other" in the Disk Cache section in the opera:config page,
seems to help by not letting Opera Cache Flash or large photos(?) during download.(Tip from another user)
Also I suggest to look further down the "Disk Cache" list to "Other Expiry" and "Other Modification" set both of those to 0,
that will completely stop any Cache timing of Other Content.
And under Browser in the Settings (Ctrl + F12) Uncheck "Remember Visited Links" so as not to Cache every link on a Page filling up the disk cache.
Just something to think about in using Windows, that maybe it is more efficient to use the default Windows Skin overall with programs rather than another Skin which uses more resources to "paint" itself on the desktop. ( Like in Windows 7 the "Aero" theme uses resources more efficiently than other themes.)
Another Plug-In that should be disabled that can cause conflicts is the
"Yahoo Application State Plug In" if you use Yahoo Messenger, its not really necessary, I think it is just used if you have a Yahoo E-Mail account Open or using Messenger at the same time so it doesn't conflict with messages between the mail web page or the IM.
Also the "Java Deployment Toolkit Plug-In" in the plug-ins panel
and "Java Quick Starter in Extensions" can be disabled, its not needed for Java use,
just the actual Java Platform SE 6 Uxx Version plug-in is needed to run it.
I would even turn off Auto-Update in the Java Control Panel.
