  WannaBe: Did anyone bought any Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) yesterday? Or call option on it? I hope not.

Or did anyone sold any ALU or call option yesterday? (I hope you did!)

  chancho: <WannaBe> I've been using Opera browser as of late, and I cannot view movie trailers at IMDB with it.

Any suggestions?

  WannaBe: Post me a link, and let me do a looky look.
Apr-17-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Here, try this...

https://addons.opera.com/en/extensi...

Apr-17-15

  chancho: The add on is only supported by opera 11 and 12.
Apr-17-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <chancho> Hmmm... I take it, that you can't update your Opera?
Apr-18-15  chessmoron: <WannaBe> Opera's current version is 28.0.
Apr-18-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: I have Opera 28.

<The add on is only supported by opera 11 and 12.> that's the message I get from the link you sent me when I try to download it.

  WannaBe: <chancho> I just tried it on my IE, and I see that IMDB uses flash, (maybe check and see if you have the latest flash player from Adobe?)

I did get a flash error message once the preview was over. It's possible that Opera did not render the film clip because of it?

I may have to download and try it with an Opera browser...

  chancho: I downloaded Flash Player and IMDB trailers work on IE, but when I try Opera, no dice.

  WannaBe: <chancho> Hmmm... Okay, let me see what I can find out.

  WannaBe: <chancho> I just installed Opera, and when I go to imdb I get all text, no picture of any kind...

Let me try a couple other ones.

  WannaBe: Hey, great, none of the browser are showing imdb.com correctly. Even IE...
Apr-18-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I can still see imdb.com using my home PC, which means one of the browser setting at work is screwing things up...

I added a plug-in called NoFlash, which is suppose to control/allow flash activities. I think that is what screwed it.

  chancho: <WannaBe> I guess I'll have to go to IE for watching movie trailers in IMDB.

If you can find a solution to the Opera issue, let me know.

Thanks.

I also noticed that on YouTube, when I choose a video, it shows a gray area and a play button on the video screen.

I press that, and it goes black and says an error occurred.

I refresh the page, press play, and then it shows the video.

Opera stinks!

Looks like I'd have to remove that 2 Nobel Prize for Phyzics, 1 Pulitzer for Non-Fiction Historical-Drama, 2 Oscars for Best Original Screen Play Based on Actual Event (Short Film Category) and how I wiped out Magnus Carlsen 7-0 while blind fold 2-minute blitz from LinkedIn.
