Opera loading problem
I've written a script based on jquery and the benalman jquery hashchange plugin that allows us to go from one page to another whithout stopping videos that may be playing. THIS is the site where I use my script. Click on a link that starts some music, then go to another page using the menu at the top, to the left. You'll notice that the music does not stop.
This works in all modern browsers except Opera. The pages that are supposed to load (in an iframe) often hang with that browsers. There's no Opera problem on the hard disk. Does anyone know if this is an Opera bug?
Seems to work OK here in Opera. There's a lot going on with that page though. What exactly do I have to do to see it misbehave? It might just be that I have a better connection to the YT server.
Please go to the site using Opera.
Click on 'just music' to the right, at the top.
Click on 'D'Albert, Piano Concerto' (for instance)
Now click on 'show / hide pages of site' to the left, at the top
Choose a page by clicking on a link in the unfolded menu, then select another page, and so on. At a given point, Opera will refuse to load new pages.
But if it is behaving OK, choose another music page, then do as before. (You can also select videos from inside the pages except the first one).
The strange thing is that Opera behaves as it should right now. But it didn't a while ago, and repeatedly so.
Just did what you said in Opera and it worked fine.
When I navigated away from that page, the video just minimized and stuck to the top of the page.
I re navigated several times and it never stop loading.
As for the video minimizing when you go from one page to the other, that's done on purpose. The idea is that the visitor is allowed to keep listening to a piece of music while navigating through the site. If the video would not minimize, the visitor would not be able to read the text on the pages (while listening to a piece of music).
But the problem here is and was that loading pages (text) in Opera often is not possible because Opera freezes (too often) when I go from one (text) page to the other. Perhaps it's my Opera settings.
