HTML5 video web Opera android vs Opera Windows

Post by lriuqs » Fri Jul 26, 2019 6:34 am

Hello,

could someone help with one thing.

Why trying to watch movie on UMS web interface on HTML5 version on Opera browser i receive the error message: "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported."
On Firefox it works but video is lagging.
On both brovsers Flash works but quality is not good.

And on Opera on Android everything works as charm.

Anyone have a solution for that?

System: Windows 10

EDIT
On Chrome it works perfect.

Best regards

I'm pretty sure nobody ever bothered to make sure it works on Opera. What formats/codecs the different browsers support varies. That said, as far as I remember the exact same video stream is sent to Flash and HTML5, so the quality should be the same. As far as I remember the codec/formats are hardcoded for the different browsers, which probably is the reason you see a difference in quality. Another possibility is that Android devices have so small screens that you simply can't tell that the quality is bad ;)

In either case, I don't think there's anything you can do as a user (unless you want to dig into the code). I'm pretty sure that solving it means making changes to UMS itself.

I just checked on Chrome and HTML5 works perfect.

The qualite we can leave.

I'm interested why on Opera Android it works and on Opera Windows is not in both HTML5.

My guess is that Opera for Android supports something that Opera for Windows doesn't, probably because the underlying OS supports it so that Opera gets it "for free".
