I have enabled - enable webGL by entering Enable WebGL in opera:config by setting the value to 1, and Enable Hardware Acceleration similarly, then restart the browser - Opera 12 on Windows & tried to open - http://aleksandarrodic.com/p/jellyfish/.

This gives me an alert saying - Your browser failed to initialize WebGL.

Please guide me on - What's going wrong?

opera:gpu says :
Hardware acceleration Disabled
Direct3D 10 Backend not supported Could not load library
OpenGL Backend not supported Could not load library

But,same thing (http://aleksandarrodic.com/p/jellyfish/) works fine on Chrome!

Thanks Sneha

  • Could it be that your GPU hardware is not good enough? (Sorry, that I can't define "good enough".) – ytg Oct 19 '12 at 13:17

To support WebGl (or Hardware accelleration) browser must ensure compatibility with Video card drivers. This is done per card / per driver revision / per OS version (because they can be quite different).

The message that you are getting just means that your combination of Operating System, Graphic Card and Video Driver is not supported by Opera (yet). This might or might not change in future.

but it works in Chrome - all browsers are different ;) Especially in implementations of such experimental features as WebGL.
