Videos from DropBox, in Discourse under Opera don't work

Hey All,

I often post little demo videos to my community site by dumping them in dropbox, copying the public link, pasting the link into Discourse and changing the dl=0 to dl=1 on the end of the supplied url. It seems to work in all browsers except for Opera.

For example, see this page.

It’s not a codec problem - the same video file either directly from local file or when shown via the Dropbox page works fine (see here). This seems to be specific to Discourse.

Any ideas on how to make this work?

Also, Feature Request: it’d be great if when pasting a Dropbox link into Discourse it automatically replaced the query string parameter dl=0 to dl=1 so that the viewer automatically gets embedded.


some troubles here in this forum with videos, I can’t play it

Browser Opera version 60.0.3255.170

any advice?

Works fine for me on Opera 62.0.3331.18 under Linux

I can even detach it and get a cool floating window
