To solve the blue tint problem I had to right-click a flash element already running and set (in "preferences") off the hw acceleration, otherwise I had blue tint regardless the libvdpau workaround.

Opera 33 - no support for PPAPI

I am not sure that description of that Opera 33 supports PPAPI is correct in head of the article. -- Andy Crowd - 蔡依林 18:50, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

This was implemented over a year ago: [1]. What makes you think otherwise? -- Alad (talk) 18:55, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Do you use Opera? I got problem after update to version 33, cannot play flash video, error that flash is not available. -- Andy Crowd - 蔡依林 19:10, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes, but I haven't upgraded from v32 yet. I'd suggest you to file a bug. -- Alad (talk) 19:16, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Ok. Then just wait for a few more updates to opera and see if it will be the same "BUG". -- Andy Crowd - 蔡依林 19:26, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
SOLVED - my pepper flash update stuck on version 17 but no errors about flash version was on adobe website, now everything works after I updated it to the latest. May be add this type of bug:
Note: If flash videos doesn't work in opera then pepper flash must be updated to the newest version.
You can compare in "about:plugins" with listed on adobe website.

google-chrome-stable uses only: /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so (if path to file doesn't exist then it still shows plugin in the list but flash videos cannot be loaded)
Opera uses: /usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so if path/file doesn't exist it using /usr/lib/chromium/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so next it looking for /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
Chromium uses only: /usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so if path/file doesn't exist then no plugin is listed/used.
The "manifest.json" file contains flash player version. Chromium/Chrome has no problems with old version but Opera not allowing to use older versions of it and shows no errors, flash videos just didn't play even on adobe website.
