Hello there,

i use the Opera browser on linux and i can't get it to work with soundcloud.
Every time i want to play a track on the page i get the notification:
"Offenbar hast du einen Flash-Blocker aktiviert. Um diesen Track anzuhören, musst du den Flash-Blocker deaktivieren."
I tried everything:
*(de-)activate Opera Turbo
*(de-)activate built-in Ad-Blocker
*(de-)activate all other add-ons/plug-ins
*factory reset
*use dev version

the logfiles show me this error when trying to playback:
[14117:14117:0524/162040.883585:22211832307:INFO:CONSOLE(6)] "Script error.", source: https://a-v2.sndcdn.com/assets/views-al-b9e59c4-1e9d1b4.js (6)
[14117:14117:0524/162040.883688:22211832405:INFO:CONSOLE(10)] "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'controller' of undefined", source: https://a-v2.sndcdn.com/assets/lib-b0c5408-f0bdfed.js (10)


what to do?

/Edit:
Sorry, wrong Forum.
Should be in "soundcloud on my computer" but this option wasn't avilable when creating the topic

solved.

On (arch) Linux it's necessary to install flash in order to get the site working. I guess this is for displaying ads.
If flash isn't available for the browser, soundcloud thinks, a flash blocker is active.

In my oppinion, this is rude and only good for politics:
Switching the sound framework to html5 but let the ads be flash, this is trash.

nevermind, for future opera users on (arch-)linux:
you need pepper-flash to be installed.
