  1. Right I have the program to download the youtube videos, the ones I want to use are now on the computer as .flv, so now I need a program that works on windows 98 that can convert from .flv to avi or vob.

    I also need a program that will join multiple parts of a .flv files like say more than one part and join them to one complete file.

  2. The difference between Firefox and Opera is that in case of Firefox they at least provided a reason for dropping Win2k support (using VS2010 to compile Fx) while in case of the current snapshot of Opera 12.50 it's still compiled in VS2008 and can be easily made to work in Win2k without even using any unofficial kernels. They didn't say anything about why they had decided to drop Win2k support.

    Does this mean Opera 12.50 can be made to work for windows 98 using KernelEx?

  3. The INSTALL_FLASH_PLAYER_32BIT.EXE file is linked to missing export ADVAPI32.DLL:ChangeServiceConfig2W.

    Kexstubs now contains the follow definition for this API:


    [Advapi32.dll]
    ChangeServiceConfig2W=z3e

    That means: return zero, pop three parameters from the stack, and SetLastError (<invalid function>).

    You can also try changing the definition to "z3e0" / SetLastError (<success>).

    Yes, the msi (windows installer)  of update 262 works fine for me.   :yes:  

    The player only works, if Opera runs with Win2000 mode! It doesn't, if Opera runs with default mode.

    Yeah, but I think you are referring to having ME, whereas I have Win98.

  4. It would seem that the people at http://portableappz.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/flash-1021531-10318042-plugins.html have boobed with their latest update, well I say this as when I take their latest Adobe Flash player update for version 11.3.300.257 then extract as normal, when I check the version of NPSWF32.dll it shows as 11,2,202,235.

    Anyone else noticed this or has anyone managed to get the latest version to show on their system?

    Honestly, I don't know what sort of benefits do you expect installing newest Flash version on retro systems like Win98/Me but if you need it so badly, you can download it from here.

    Btw, I've tested it - it works (suprisingly even with old SeaMonkey 1.1.19).

    I have taken your advice and am staying for the time being with 11.2. don't fix if it ain't broke comes to mind. :D

  5. Anyone tried to install the latest Opera 12 on a 98 system with KernelEx final?

    When I click on check for updates I see that Opera 12 is ready for download and install, but I have refrained from doing so yet as 11.64 works fine at present.

    EDIT,

    Well I gave it a go, not by installing directly from the exe file but exactly the same way as I did for 11.64, this time however every time on executing the program a crash error reported about opera wrapper or something, but after hitting close on that error the program still opened, but the Flash that operates with 11.64 and is recognised by such doesn't work with Opera12.00

    I may have kept it if it hadn't been for the Flash issue as my Flash works well on 11.64, so I eventually after a few attempts to fix it in the Opera 12.00 config then I deleted the data in the Opera 12.00 folder in program files where I created it, and also in the system folder where it is auto created on execution of the program itself.

    Now if anyone has anyway of fixing these issues I will be very glad to hear it, otherwise I stick with the browsers I have on my profile.

    Regards.

  6. Right, so I have the last 10 version for Internet Explorer 6 which is 10,3,183,20, I don't use I.E much only when playing pool.

    I use Opera 11.64 and Firefox 3.68, and I am using flash version 11.2.202.235 for both of these browsers, and do so as I have used the NPSWF32.dll version for 11.2.202.235 and placed it in c:windows/system/macromedia/flash, and when I check the version report on adobe it reports I have version 11.2.202.235 successfully installed.

    Now I am aware that this isn't the most current version as 11.3 is available, but this latest 11.3 version is having issues with sound on embedded youtube videos, I take it nobody else using windows 98 is having the same issues with sound with the 11.3 version of flash player?

  7. Well I am staying with the 11.2.202.235 version and all I did was to use the Flash portable file and place it in the macromedia system folder, and it reports it as being installed, and of course I don't have sound issues with youtube videos.

    I found it surprising that there was a 11.2.202.236 version, I assumed the last 11.2 version was 235 ?

    Can someone who has installed this very latest version using the msi confirm that playing videos embedded with youtube results in normal audio and video?

  8. It's possible to install version 11.3 again with the msi installer. It installs with an error, but it works for me. (Opera 11.64 / Firefox 3.5.19 // but have a problem with Opera 10.63)  :thumbup   

    Doesn't work for me with the installer, I get a permanent runtime error, and no sign of any files going to temp folders, anyway I went back to 11.2 due to the sound issues I mentioned earlier.

  9. It would seem that the people at http://portableappz.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/flash-1021531-10318042-plugins.html have boobed with their latest update, well I say this as when I take their latest Adobe Flash player update for version 11.3.300.257 then extract as normal, when I check the version of NPSWF32.dll it shows as 11,2,202,235.

    Thanks for that link, I was saying that the one from the PortableAppz site has the previous driver but your link gives the correct one, and my player has the correct up-to-date version now.

    Many thanks.

  10. Bug and security fixes as well as support for latest Flash features perhaps... :w00t:

    You know, it would be wonderful to have Flash GPU acceleration on Win9x but it's not possible as we know.

    Btw, I've discovered some sound glitches (disstorion) with latest version.

    Did you run the .paf installer for say Firefox then copy and paste the NPSWF32.dll into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Macromed\Flash ?

    What I was saying earlier was when I checked the version of NPSWF32.dll after extracting it from the latest .paf it was the older version and not the new one, why would this be?

    For as long as it works I don't see a reason not to keep up to date with it.

    Thanks for the link btw.

    Okay but could you check the file from that link and say whether its the new driver or not?

  13. have same issue on 11.52

    but then again I only noticed MS sites force wmp crap videos so I left the issue behind :)

    Thanks for putting me out my misery, been trying to fix this will all sorts this afternoon with no joy, will stop now as it seems a bug with Opera itself.

    You are right though as most sites use flash player.

    :lol:

  14. Would someone have any ideas why on this link the WMP can play the file with no problems in Firefox 3.6.28, but the same player shows when using Opera 11.64 but will just not play the video.

    Would this be anything to do with the fact to how Opera 11.64 was installed in that the stand alone installer wasn't used and the work around was used instead.

    I have tried inserting the plugins used by Firefox, but this hasn't helped, and to be honest when I tried the link with Opera 11.64 at first it was WMP 6.4 that would appear and again with no play, but I found out by going to the registry and entering a new key for OPERA.EXE, this then made the 9 series of WMP show, but that only helped half of the issue, the other half being that it won't play.

    I know you might say well just use firefox, but the thing is I have found Opera to be faster, and if I could get a fix for this then I would prefer to use Opera.

    Here is the link.
