  2. VLC 3.0.17.4 also runs fine here on a Lenovo T60 with Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 and WINXP SP3 POSReady "hacked". My second thought was also about SSE2. BTW @VistaLover it doesn't matter if it's a single core or whatever P4 - all Intel Pentium 4 CPUs since the first incarnation "Willamette" support SSE2. The Willamette introduced SSE2 into the market in ~2000, AMD got it licensed and introduced it with there first Opteron/Athlon 64 CPUs (codename Hammer) in 2003. So I guess @Reino has an Intel Pentium III / AMD Athlon XP or earlier!? BTW2 the site https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc/-/issues/20033 doesn't show anything except the top and left menu with latest NM28. BTW3 I really appreciate VLC media player for having a simple GUI, being OSS and for being very backward compatible for years. The latest versions for Windows 95/98/98SE/ME (VLC 0.8.6i), Windows NT 4.0 (VLC 1.0.5) and Windows 2000 SP4 (VLC 1.1.11) are available for download from my website -> soggi.org - tools. Maybe I should add VLC 2.2.8 for non-SSE2 CPUs running WinXP!? kind regards soggi

  3. Hello all, I found a way on YouTube to be able to open IE without Edge. Instruction: Open notepad and type: CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application").Visible=true Save it e.g. IE.vbs. It is important that it must have the filename .vbs Then double-click on the file. Cr. to @さとるふぃっしゅ / satorufish on YouTube Have fun trying

  4. Actually I didn't. In fact, I'm not a C/C++ coder, not even a coder by profession at all. In the process I just learned how to compile an FFmpeg binary for my old pc. So I guess that's all thanks to the optimized FFmpeg code itself, and maybe a little to the GCC compiler that I used. Every single time I try to compile new binaries is a challenge though, because it is getting harder and harder to add back WinXP compatibility. One thing is for sure; without Gianluigi Tiesi's patches I couldn't have done this anymore! He - obviously a professional coder - also releases WinXP compatible FFmpeg binaries, but his binaries aren't compatible with my old CPU. You're welcome nonetheless, of course. https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=181802

  6. Thank you very much for your work on all of your great ffmpeg builds--and thank you for keeping all of them archived, going back several years! From the oldest available to the newest, they run with no problems on my Pentium D...it's amazing to be able to play so many different formats, and the CPU/RAM usage is kept extremely modest because you did such a great job with the optimization. I don't stop by often, but when I do I always like to show appreciation...you've done some fantastic work, and I appreciate it very much!

  7. Youtube-dl will soon also have a fix for that (borrowed from yt-dlp). You'll have to build from source, because there are no releases any more since 2021.12.17... pyinstaller.exe youtube_dl\__main__.py --onefile --name youtube-dl

  8. Haha, funny. And yes, of course. I've also seen that with ffmpeg. Immediate crash the moment a binary is compiled specifically for CPUs with SSE2 instruction-set and up. Btw, nice to see my WinXP ffmpeg binaries are still useful for some folks.

  9. @Reino's old CPU (up to SSE instructions set, only?) is probably incompatible with the VLC 3.x.x branch; see reported issue(s): https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc/-/issues/20033 and https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc/-/issues/21887 The VLC frontend (GUI) is built with the Qt Framework and somewhere in there lies the incompatibility with older CPUs... @AstroSkipper, is your "Pentium 4 single core CPU" capable of SSE2/3? if yes, that's the reason you can launch the VLC 3 GUI... @Reino: To load those GitLab links, you have to install the latest palefill extension onto your NM28-SSE build...

  11. Honestly, what you've done is still very impressive either way. Even if you did not do any coding in the traditional sense, you've still done some tremendous work in compiling these binaries...the fact that support is retained for pre-SSE2 processors is no small miracle, and you can rest assured I know it will get harder as time goes on. I'm grateful because you could have just as easily decided to keep your binaries for yourself--instead, you chose to share them with others, and in a world full of selfish people I am always grateful to ANYONE who is as generous as you have been. Thank you for being humble enough to be so honest--you've earned the right to pat yourself on the back, but that's all up to you. Speaking only for myself, I am definitely looking forward to your future releases! Thank you VERY much!

  12. If I may say so, I think that's a great idea! Personally, I've been sticking with VLC 1.1.11 for years...for me, 1.1.x was when VLC truly hit its peak, but newer versions I've tested also seem to work quite well. After more than a decade, this old version still gets the job done, and can play a lot of formats with very little toll on the CPU (I believe experimental GPU acceleration was introduced with the 1.1.x series, which really helps if your GPU supports H/X.264 decoding). Also, I agree with everything you said about VLC...for me, it's still the 'heavyweight champ' of media players, and even the newest 3.0.x still knocks a lot of other programs out of the ring. I appreciate that the devs haven't changed the program too much over the years! They've added a lot of support for modern formats and other cool features, while keeping the same great interface we all know & love.

  13. Could be non-SSE2 cpu? When searching this error on Google, I saw your name come up twice.

  14. @tpao12, another working, alternative extension to open videos in VLC is Video Assistant 1.0.4. I use this extension in Serpent 52, but it will work in other roytam1's browsers either, and it's fine. It can be enabled or disabled by a toogle button and opens a video from different sources, which can be set in its options, in VLC automatically. You will find it in the Classic Add-ons Archive. Cheers, AstroSkipper

  15. When I write about something I haven't research before, but in the past, it is and must be AFAIK. Otherwise, I would state facts I didn't know or remember exactly, and, spoken for me only, I don't do that generally! :-) But good to know that my recall is correct, and works as it should be although I am not really the freshest one, referring to my age, LOL!

  16. My mentioned Pentium 4 has the instruction set SSE2. AFAIK, all Pentium 4 have a SSE2 instruction set at least. @Reino didn't provide any hardware details. I didn't want to make assumptions. But, you are absolutely right. If @Reino's CPU is a SSE only one, I can understand why VLC 3 doesn't work, and unfortunately, a lot of other software either. Cheers, AstroSkipper

  17. I found a modified version of Python 3.7 for XP (from @cmalex) and compiled yt-dlp myself with that. (see also here) Had to copy the module files to Lib and Scripts from a Vista system with 3.7, because I got errors when trying to install these in XP. Also had to edit 'pyinst.py' to leave out the 'websockets' module, also because of error.

  23. ...First saw this breakage in the My Browser Builds (Part 3) subforum, then discovered all posts on any forum are inaccessible via browser... It's ca. 15:00 UTC here and the issue persists ... I believe the admins should be already aware of this ; hoping for a timely resolution... FWIW, post previews seem to still work; and the last e-mail notification I successfully received was ca. 5hr ago (10:00 UTC).

  24. The Classic Add-ons Archive is the first place in general to look for old, legacy add-ons. Of course, not all of them will work, you simply have to try. If you want to use YouTube in NM 28 itself, I recommend the extension uTube. Here is a link: https://realityripple.com/Software/XUL/uTube/ You'll have to change the minVersion in the file install.rdf to 28.10.0. With this extension, you get rid of all unnecessary crap on YouTube, showing the video only. Cheers, AstroSkipper

  26. It really depends on what you wanna use your computer for. Id say for the most part, both 7 and Vista (with the extended kernel) are solid choices, but 7 is definitely the safer choice of the two. Drivers and software compatibility are the primary concern for the choice between the two.
