  1. Avast 8 is out of game: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=233272.0 Last signature update (VPS) was 200331-6. But surprisingly, the streaming updates still works!
  2. I like this (Look for task manager tool!): Perhaps it is of interest to you.
  3. Welcome back! Perhaps your operaprefs file has the read-only attribute. Try also this. In your profile folder, you serach operaprefs.ini and manually add this string into [User Prefs] section: Custom User-Agent=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv: Gecko/20081217 Firefox/
  4. I desire to save into web.archive the update packages still offers to download in my localized language, to prevent a possible future unpleasant surprise when (if) MS will remove them. Could anyone kindly provide me a current reliable list of the relevant updates post SP2 for Vista?
  5. Open regedit -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Graphics Filters\Import\JPEG Make sure that Extension string contains only the JPG value. In case, you delete other value (e.g. JPEG).
  6. Just a question. Aren't the new cyphers inside opera.dll? Is (e.g. sourceforge.net) available with this "configuration"?
  7. Hi! I'm sorry, but i don't know IDM. I cannot compare them. Anyway, I have just found the limitation of the free version: http://web.archive.org/web/20140716212406/http://www.metaproducts.com/mp/DE_Advanced.asp?id=18 Judge if you need it
  8. Forget it... recapctha is schizophrenic, stopped working again.
  9. I don't know if it will last... but i have just discovered that recaptcha backs to work into Opera!
  10. Oh no, standard Download Express is free. All the releases. Look here for the final version and details: http://web.archive.org/web/20140606102223/http://www.metaproducts.com:80/mp/mpProducts_Detail.asp?id=18
  11. Hi, what you want is Download Express by Metaproducts. Also runs with Windows 95.
  12. Hi Diamant. The only intention of my previous report was for academic demonstration that the issue is also due to artificial limitation. Have you tried with the same video that i indicated above? Another link that works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4An1BrG2u_4 I noticed that if i copy the address (right click on the video window in a browser that works) of some videos (those that can be seen changing the value), they have this format: https://r3---sn-hpa7znse.googlevideo.com/videoplayback? + more parameters (only for vp8 encoded videos?) Other videos haven't a http URL, but mediasource: + alphanumeric string (only vp9 / mse codec?). These are the videos on which the change has no effect. In the first category i found personal video (e.g. No commercial song here) and, once the address has been identified, we can watch this videos also only using the embedded HTML5 player of Firefox or Opera. Now, a lawful (i believe) and sufficiently fast way to watch youtube's videos directly (when so avalaible) that i can suggest is as follows. Using the Y2mate service through a custom search engine (i used Opera, as in the example image), you just copy the ID video and search it. The Y2mate's page contains different options for obtain audio or video files, but, if avalaible, an WEBM option with a download button. Selecting it, without waiting for the entire download, Opera starts the video (or only audio) streaming. Please, test it and report your feedback
  13. Opera 12.02 doesn't work anymore. But, unlike Firefox has only an inactive checkbox, Opera opens the challenge window, but doesn't show the picture, only a blank frame, and the buttons don't work. Any hope of workaround using a test audio? What's your opinion?
