  1. (Sorry, didn't have time to respond to this before.) I agree with your general point, but I'm not sure how much Google is to blame in this particular case. The thing is, programmers often tend to be pretty lazy when having to do maintenance tasks, because these aren't seen as "cool" and "innovative"... And this bug is a bit of a special case, because it takes almost 30 min to run a single test case, whether you're trying to track down where the regression originated, or trying to fix it. Let me give you a rough rundown of the process I went through with this (let's skip this long story for them normal people ; and this isn't about me looking for extra credit, honest! ) OK, so now consider that during virtually every step of this, you have to run a whole lot of 30 min (or longer) tests to make sure of your guesses or fixes. I am, of course, a great guy and all , but even with my highly vested hobbyist interest in solving this issue it took me several months to get through this all. Obviously not months of straight work on this alone, and obviously I didn't just sit around gaping at the screen every time I ran a test, but started the test and then did something else while it ran, but the whole thing still took time. Now, imagine I was an elite coder working at Mozilla , and generally supposed to work on some other stuff besides this. And, let's say you were my manager. Are you sure you'd let me spend all this time on this one, apparently (but really not) intermittent issue that seems to be affecting only a few people (really affecting all, but 99.99% of those people wouldn't put 2 and 2 together and notice the very specific interval and would instead write these freezes off as internet issues or whatever else) on a "legacy" OS that doesn't have that long to live anyway (or so you think, not knowing about POSReady, and MSFN )? And would I, an elite Mozilla engineer , want you to make me spend my precious time on something like this? I mean, even without the whole Windows driver dive and leak hunting thing they obviously wouldn't get into (the leak hadn't happened yet, either), it's a lot of work that isn't "cool", nor "innovative"! This is not to say that I excuse the fact that they don't even run tests for longer playback, etc., etc. We all know Mozilla has lots of problems with their attitude and policies, and there are many things they aren't doing that they should be doing (and vice versa). I definitely do blame them for letting this fall through the cracks and not doing more to fix this. But as far as Google goes, since they probably weren't using cubeb, maybe they themselves never ran into this bug (at least its more obvious, 2x:xx version), and since this isn't an issue specific to Youtube, I think I wouldn't blame them too much for this one. But there is Microsoft, who introduced this bug in the first place with that pretty dumb coding error...

  2. I guess this is my cue to stop procrastinating and finally post the fix I made for this I've had a few people test it for 4 months now on all kinds of sites on both XP x86 and x64, and the jury says this indeed fixes the 2x:xx video stoppage issue and doesn't seem to introduce any new problems. I honestly didn't intend for the testing period to be quite this long, but summer heat can have a detrimental effect on one's brain and thus plans. Since my own browser builds are based on Centaury, but I still consider myself a (lurking) MSFN patriot and this is the home of @roytam1's Serpent, I'm just going to post the fixed media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_winmm.c on Pastebin to avoid playing favorites (and signing up on Github ) I'm not sure how often @feodor2 visits here these days, so maybe someone on Github could mention this in https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/issues/1 if he doesn't pick this up soon enough. What has been tested: MP4/VP9/VP8 (and plain audio MP3/etc) streaming/local chunked/single-file sped-up/slowed-down 27+ hrs long playback (see the technical details for why) Youtube/Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/TV station streams/etc/etc (nor did we forget p0rn/pirate sites, which of course are no different from a technical POV... ). Among other things, a 75-year old lady watched the entirety of Prince Philip's funeral with this fix in effect and had no complaints. What has NOT been tested: Pale Moon-based builds (as opposed to Basilisk), because I don't use NM or Mypal. Since this is a UXP platform level fix, the front-end should have no effect. I obviously don't have access to every sound card out there, but since the MS driver causing these problems should be common in all configurations, I'd expect the fix to work with pretty much every card. new-fangled formats like AV1 (I'd expect them work, though). DRM-ed streams, since no Widevine on XP (but again, this should work with those as well if DRM itself worked). @roytam1, @feodor2 I didn't create a preference for turning this fix off, because it turned out the normal pref system is no longer compatible with C code, and once it became evident enough that the fix was pretty solid, I didn't feel like hacking something together to make preffing work for a library-level change like this. You're welcome to pref it, of course, but based on the length of testing with no issues discovered, I dare claim it's safe to include without a pref. Here's a general overview of why this problem was happening (you may be surprised ): And, some more technical specifics, incl. about where the 2x:xx times come from (this is also included as a comment in the source code): EDIT: Writing this up amply reminded me how much I LOVE making long posts using this board's post editor... BBCode FTW!

  5. Fingers crossed. Honestly, unless they're hell-bent on flushing all memory of XP, I can't think of a good reason for why they wouldn't accept this fix. Let's hope Tobin won't have a heart attack if his so-called "MSFN hackers" manage to get official recognition. (Less name-calling, cussing, and paranoid lashing out at people who have been helping their project, and maybe they wouldn't need appeals like UXP development: it doesn't magically happen...) EDIT: If Tobin or someone else from PM reads this: sarcasm aside, I'm actually not saying this to fan the flames of conflict, the point is that it's painful to watch the upstream I believe most of us would ideally like to support and root for make that as hard as possible, and not just for MSFN members, but also a number of those in their own community.

  6. ... This is Windows XP SPx you're still talking about , official Mozilla Firefox builds NEVER supported natively the h264 proprietary decoder in HTML5 video; the decoder is patented and its native inclusion in a browser requires the browser authors pay a "handsome" fee to the patent owners (the MPEG4 consortium). Google are rich enough to afford that fee, so Google Chrome comes bundled with that decoder (AVC=h264) and hence it's capable of native h264 playback under Windows XP... When Adobe Flash Player was around, it itself came with bundled h264/aac decoders (again, because Adobe are rich), so MP4 video streams could be played, via that plugin, even in browsers (like Firefox) without that decoder built-in (and XP users, like yourself, were "happy"...). When many video sites abandoned Flash and instead started using HTML5 embedded web players, the lack of h264 decoder in Firefox rose to the surface, again for Windows XP users ONLY... Your favourite OS is deficient in this sector because the vendor, Microsoft, did not equip it originally with that patented decoder, nor a provision was made to add it in a later stage via an update... You see, Mozilla, instead of paying the h264 patent fee, decided to shift the "issue" to the OS itself, so that Firefox could make use of the h264 decoder already present in the OS (as Microsoft had already paid that fee themselves); unfortunately for you, h264 dec is only present in Vista SP2+Platform-Update-Supplement and higher - the way for Firefox to use it is through Microsoft's WMF (Windows Media Foundation) framework, so you can't bring h264 support to Firefox under XP via installing Codec Packs (these are used for DirectX media players, like WMP). The Adobe Primetime CDM (content decryption module) came with a bundled h264 decoder (patent fee paid by Adobe) and as a side-effect (its primary purpose was DRM) it can be used as an HTML5 h264 decoder in versions of Firefox that supported the CDM (off the top of my head, I think it was v47.0-51.0 officially, but v52.0 also works) - again, this is solely for XP... Regarding Roytam1 browsers: New Moon 27 doesn't support h264 natively (on any OS), but you can "install" such support by downloading an additional "package" (lav), extracting it and placing some DLLs adjacent to "palemoon.exe". The UXP-based browsers, like New Moon 28 and Serpent 52, come with a special "kludge", i.e. h264 decoding support is included in the ffvpx third party library (for XP's sake only, the UXP-based browsers can still use WMF's native decoder, if on Vista SP2 and up...). Lastly, HTML5 video decoding in a browser under XP is S/W only, so the video watching performance you get depends, among other things, on the video codec selected to begin with and your CPU; some codecs are taxing your CPU more heavily than others; the higher the resolution/bitrate/framerate, the more your CPU suffers; performance of the youtube webpage alone (which is a literal beast of JS and CSS code currently) depends on the browser engine, CPU, GPU, available bandwidth, CDN you are served from, content blockers, etc. so, while I find these "stats-for-nerds" logs to be of some substance, they have little statistical weight when compared between different setups... The Adobe Primetime CDM requires SP3 for Windows XP... His "log" mentions the av01 video codec, aka av1/AOM, do note AOM != AVC, official Firefox ESR 52 never supported that codec; the codec is, however, supported in UXP browsers via a pref: media.av1.enabled;true but decoding taxes heavily your CPU... PS: @UCyborg 's post appeared in the middle of writing this , he's right, of course, but my post expands on what he kindly posted...

  8. Let's see here... Looks like my latest Centaury build uses roughly 6.2 GB altogether, 1.4 GB for the source and 4.8 GB for the "object directory" with build results. This is a release build, debug would be somewhat larger - so let's say 7-8 GB in total. MozillaBuild is roughly 0.8 GB. The full DirectX SDK is 1.2 GB installed (although you really only need a few MB from it). For Windows 10 EWDK based builds (like @feodor2 does them) the EWDK .iso (that you can mount as-is) is 6-9 GB depending on version (getting bigger), but you don't have to install VS and the Windows SDK, so you can still save quite a bit that way. It was pretty funny to see Moonchild arrogantly lecture feodor2 that he didn't "understand how software in general works" because feodor2 didn't want to install all the extra bloat that comes with VS, whereas Mozilla have been using stripped down tools packages since well before Firefox 52.0 that UXP is based on (see the history of their toolchain packaging script). (OK, so they do the install once, but then package the components they actually need and use that package for subsequent builds.) If you did that (installed, repackaged, uninstalled) with the current official MCP requirements for Pale Moon/Basilisk, you'd end up with only 1.3 GB for all the required VS and SDK stuff, huge space savings! You're very welcome Since I don't plan on distributing my own builds publicly, I guess you'll have to wait until @roytam1 and/or @feodor2 merge this into their builds, so quite possibly only until this week-end for Serpent (although they'll likely want to spend a bit more time testing this on their own).

  13. Most of the complaints I've seen have been on their support site though, not at Bugzilla where the devs would see them first hand. And there never seemed to be that many people joining in and confirming the bug. The point @grey_rat kindly reminded us about would also definitely play a role in this. In any case, far be it from me to absolve Mozilla from its responsibility, I've mostly just been meaning to point out that there have been interfering factors along the way that don't (in this case) necessarily involve full-on Google agents within Mozilla's ranks. Thanks! After I found that it didn't matter if I used an online stream or a local file, I just downloaded a a random longish file VP8 WEBM video from search results, which happened to be this one. As you said, you won't be able to stream it because FF 15.0 can't handle the current HTTPS ciphers, but you can play it locally. (I've got to say, by the time I was finally done with the fix, I was totally haunted by the faces of those debate participants! ) Sure thing, go for it , but maybe wait until people have had a chance to play with your builds? I'd thought of this too, but I didn't want to bring it up before it's been confirmed that the fix works well for everyone. But it'd definitely be a nice subversion to "side load" this XP-specific fix into the current Firefox code via their stand-alone cubeb lib, after they took great care to remove all traces of XP from their main tree! That's an excellent point! It's been a long time since I switched from Flash to the Primetime codec for H.264, so Mozilla's messing around with H.264 and especially its support on XP has faded from memory a bit. Yeah, those watching MP4/H.264 stuff using the Flash player wouldn't see this 2x:xx issue (I think - never tested for it specifically) and wouldn't have anything to report until maybe the last few XP-compatible Firefox versions, by which time Mozilla barely cared about XP any more. And VP8/9, which Firefox supported natively, were mostly available on Youtube, hence the strong association with the site for a long time.

  19. AFAIK, Firefox itself only ever used Windows Media Foundation (Vista+) for AVC, which is not available on XP, hence you need a plugin on that OS, but otherwise, Firefox 52.9 can do AVC without a plugin.

  20. @we3fan Try setting media.webm.enabled to false in about:config page and see how it performs. Should only need a reload of the page to take effect if you had a video open before you've set it, YouTube's stats->Codecs will then say avc1. Edit: wait, if you insist on Firefox 52 and my memory is right, you need a plugin that will do the decoding of H.264 (AVC1) streams if you disable the above pref. Disabling it on its own will leave no codec to fallback on that FX will be able to decode.

  25. The good news is, there should be a solution for Flash. Seems Adobe is still updating it for the China market. The bad news is, Adobe cripples the Chinese version to only run in China. Plus it has all the government-mandated spyware.... But the other good news is, there's a GitHub project called Clean Flash that removes the region restrictions and spyware! It's all discussed in this thread (at the XP forum, but it applies to newer Windows versions too; I'm running Flash 34.0.0.164 under Win 7): Runs just fine in IE 11, as well as Chrome & Firefox (prior to the most recent few versions; see post for details). Edge appears to be hopeless though.

It's chinese , you've been warned , though I didn't notice anything bad . Block it the firewall , of course ! Also , you need to look for a portable version , then just open it and leave it be . It will prevent the screen saver and your monitor from going off while watching videos in 360 browser or even playing . It was the only solution that worked for me . I do not even use the player itself , I just open when I want my screen to remain on. The suggestion by the member @ArcticFoxie doesn't work for me , maybe because I'm on Vista , not XP. BTW , you're very lucky he didn't go caps-locking on you , lol.

  30. Not much of a music person myself, but yes, though YouTube hasn't been the only source. My sound equipment is rather poor, onboard sound on an ASUS motherboard from 2008 that cost only 70€ and some relatively recent (cca. 2 years) Sony headphones that cost 30€. I also use Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 on Windows and PulseEffects on Linux. I don't have an exact equal config, it's probably impossible since they're 2 different programs, but they seem to help making things sound better even without digging deep into the configuration. Here be the 3 memorable (for me at least) theme tracks from Doctor Who: 2005 revival theme Series 8 theme The one that started it all, the original, you might say

  32. @mixit. Finally a fix, that's been a problem for a long time. I just tested it again in XP and the usual buffering was around 25:12. No reason for Mozilla not to have resolved it, there were plenty of complaints so they had to know. Probably too busy messing with the UI to be bothered with real bugs and then they wonder why their user base keeps dwindling.

  33. When you have an infinite number of tasks with higher priority, it's practically impossible to find time for polishing things like that so unless the bug is actively causing havoc on significant scale, it may take years before it's fixed, if ever, and in case of commercial software, you probably won't get the version with the fix for free. Mozilla also hasn't fixed slow WebGL in Firefox on XP and this is still an open issue on Linux, where there's also a problem (though technicalities differ).

  35. Thanks for the detailed answer, @mixit I already have VS 2019 and DirectX SDK installed, part of the reason i'm left with less than 40GB space on the C: drive, lol. Hopefully using another drive won't mess things if/when i try building something bigger (like a browser) sometime in the far future. Still no clue what i'm doing in that damn IDE, especially when a project won't build as is, but needs some fixing first. A simple "make config / make install" or the Arduino IDE come a lot more easier. P.S. there is HttpDisk, which allows mounting iso and disk images over the internet, no need to download several GBs to extract only a few files.

  37. You'd need to rebuild the whole application, replacing media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_winmm.c in the source code. Unfortunately this is not something that can be applied "on-the-fly".

  38. I also encountered a warning by Vista's firewall asking me if I want to block an incoming connection to 360chrome executable file , with v12. I want to note that I have another firewall installed (which is considered to be good) , but it didn't notice anything strange (!) , though it has almost paranoid level of settings. Vista's firewall is good ? I think so, yes. I knew about 360's incoming connections for a long time. I warned about this a long time ago , which could be found at my profile . I just thought they had disabled them already , but it seems no, they are still here.

  41. 1 - I don't know anything about v13. on "later OS" . The latest for me is Vista x64 and it doesn't have any problems , like I said . Perhaps it's because you're using another version ? Try 1106 "beta", it's good . 2- And what environment would that be ? (specs , OS) What do you mean by "newer OS" , is it Vista and up ? I'm sorry I thought you're on XP , right ? 3- Did you or did you not try to install that cert. pack . I remember I started to get cert. errors somewhere around May 2021 . I installed his pack (without SHA-2 updates) and all problems just vanished . I can't replicate your issues with any on these versions on Vista x64 , sorry. About youtbue , try to change your UA , perhaps your slownees is due to numerous scripts and bloat coming from youtube ? Do you have a good adblocker ? Try using mobile user agent from iphone , maybe ? Youtube will load less scripts/bloat if you're on iphone. Other things to consider , try using 344.xx or 347.xx drivers if you're on GTX.

  43. DVD quality (at least in the US but probably most places) is 720x480p. I've sometimes heard that referred to as "ED" ("Enhanced" Definition) as opposed to 704x480i, or SD (Standard Definition). 720p (actually 1280x720) is noticeably sharper, but it is pretty much the lower bound of what folks would consider HD.

  44. It's said he got more and more paranoid, with time passing. Then again, he faced all but certain 30y prison time, if extradicted to the USA. IMO, under the circumstances, practicing autothanasia does seem a very racional way of escaping a lot of potential pain. May he RIP! I used his software back in the 90's... at that time it rocked.

  45. I recently started a separate site with more details on the extended kernel. You can find it by searching "eclipse" and the TLD for Christmas Island. But yes, I am trying more invasive methods of version spoofing, which have worked for the .NET Core 5.0 installer, but make Steam think it's offline, while Office has yet to be tested.

  46. The latest version of Seamonkey works with the extended kernel. You just need to extract the installer and modify the .exe with CFF explorer.

  47. I will likely use Windows 8 until the late spring 2024. During that time (between October 2023 until I pull the plug), I hope that Edge is at least supported, so that some sort of current browser is used. Beyond that, my tentative plan is to migrate to an iPad Pro and Bluetooth keyboard combination. Major strides are taking hold in order to make tablets (well iPads) more productive as a PC replacement. I hope that in three to four years from now, those strides will appreciate and make the iPad a suitable make shift workstation. As time goes by, there is less that I need a dedicated workstation for. If I wanted to, I have an older Windows XP x64 workstation that I could use (disconnected from the Internet of course) as an audio editing workstation. That was my old HP xw8200 PC. Time will tell.

  48. Perhaps worth a look, free editor with syntax highlighting etc.: 920 Text Editor https://android.izzysoft.de/repo/apk/com.jecelyin.editor.v2 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jecelyin.editor.v2 I see it's now 5MB, but when I installed mine four years ago it was just 1MB. That version runs quite well on my old 0.5gb phone.
