  1. yea i've looked through it several times over already. - i disabled everything that showed up recently since then (sorted by date on the right as you'll see) these were all just the WMP things, after that is 2011 and earlier. https://i.imgur.com/6adFJ7p.png I dont have a single "non-microsoft" thing whatsoever (or pink highlited lines) except "hyperterminal icon" which i disabled too just in case. and "intel graphics control panel" ..if i turn that off, then i cant access graphic/video card options. so have to leave that alone. I dont find anything at all related to k-lite on the list. probably because i chose "not" to install that optional iacros thing mentioned on their website and in the installer. 1 thing i notice though is, sometimes while browsing my video folders, all those k-lite codec dlls and such will get loaded in explorer.exe (not always) as i watch with process explorer. And after awhile (dont know how long) they'll be unloaded. Dont know if that's related or not. Does not cause crashes, cause i still dont know how to actually reproduce this random behavior. I've currently not had any crash since I started this topic, yet. But i bet it'll come soon.
  2. No, not at all. But I do have a program called "RMClock" that lowers the voltage. i use this because it drastically keeps the overall CPU tempature much cooler than normal (20 to 30 or more degrees F "less" on full load) https://i.imgur.com/S3zqDqq.png Im not interested in that overclocking type stuff. I've had this installed since pretty much almost since i've had this comp. It's never caused any problems of it's own whatsoever. I cant imagine it possibly being suspect. As i've not touched any settings on it in years. i haven't installed any new hardware or anything like that. I'm on a laptop by the way. This whole explorer.exe thing started about 8-ish days ago. wmp11 (used to be 9) and k-lite (cant remember last ver) were the only things i've put on this since that time, (latest k-lite was the only way to ever get that viewtube thing to work) really starting to regret it.
  3. Hello, I don't know if i'll be able to get my problem fixed here or not, but I'd like to try asking here. I recently had only installed Windows Media Player 11 (version says 11.0.5721.5145), and the last available K-Lite Codec Basic Pack version for windows XP (version 13.8.5), so that I could use the viewtube script for firefox/youtube, which took a long time to get sorted out. About K-Lite, i did "not" choose to install the codec tweak tool, or the icaros extension (during install process) as I didn't want to add more unncessary stuff to my computer. Ever since then, i've been getting seemingly random explorer.exe crashes and I just don't know if it was because of one of these 2, or neither, or something else. I've never had this sort of problem ever before for as long as i've had my comp (since 2010). I'll try my best to explain. Please bear with me. It seems to only happen while i'm browsing my folders, - My documents, pictures, videos, really "anywhere" on the hard drive. It does "not" happen if i leave the computer idle for however long i choose. Just only eventually after browsing around apparently. -- I dont know how to reproduce it because things will be fine after explorer.exe restarts itself. But there's no telling when the next time it happens. sometimes once in hours, or once a day or longer. I've checked my computer at least twice with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware updated, and no viruses/threats detected. -- I've tried "sfc /scannow" and that didnt find anything. It's supposed to log entries in Event Viewer if a file was detected/replaced/etc. But none - So i assume that didnt help as everything was okay. I've downloaded and checked with "autoruns" and "shell extension viewer" and followed guides about disabling all non-microsoft services. But I only have 1 for Intel Media Accelerator Graphics Panel (needed to get video card settings, thats been there since day 1 so that's not it) -- i disabled the context menu's that were added by Windows Media player 11, but that didnt make a difference. I cant ever tell what's the problem because the event viewer always says "Faulting application , version, faulting module unknown, version, fault address 0x00000000" I then read about disabling DEP on explorer.exe, and then finally i get at least something...but it still doesnt say "what" - "Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.5512, faulting module unknown, version, fault address 0x058844f6" I have a couple screenshots so far: https://i.imgur.com/S4uuJMj.png - dep https://i.imgur.com/UKguS6A.png - no dep I don't think I'm infected with any viruses, at least... i hope not. I use IE and firefox only with "sandboxie" for extra protection. But I am very worried that somehow i must of screwed up really bad with installing media player 11 ..or latest k-lite codec pack. (i had an older version before, i dont remember what it was) - I dont really quite know what to do to get rid of these crashes.
  4. yea, sorry that i dragged it on for so long until i finally got it settled. I'll uhh, start a new a thread about my current problem if thats okay. I realize there's dozens of other websites/forums to ask, but i already signed up to this one and I dont feel in the mood to go try a bunch of other random forums.
  5. I've started getting a new problem since a few days ago, would it be best to make a new topic discussion here so I dont derail this one ? Its not really related to the youtube stuff, but since doing all this firefox/youtube stuff, for the first time literally in years and years, i've been getting random explorer.exe crashes, with no indication what the problem file(s) is. always saying "unknown model,, fault address 0x00000", etc.. It's pretty much never happened in my life before since having this computer. It's very hard to really say "when" it happens. Somtimes once per 1 day, a few hours, a few days. And I dont know if this was because of installing the latest K-Lite Codec Pack, or the windows media player 11.
  6. I too have an SSD on my windows XP comp here. Samsung 850 Evo 120 GB. It's been pretty great. defintely has been much better than a regular hard drive. I got it at least 5 or 6 years ago. And last time i checked the Samsung Magician software, it showed about 8 TB of writes done so far. I think it lasts up to 150 TB..or something, not sure. I have 150 MB of physical ram used as a RAM Drive - program is called "ramdisk" (the 1st result on google search) - I moved the temp and temp internet files enviorment variables to that, to help out the SSD write load.
  7. "Failed to render video" bad test: https://i.imgur.com/hXO6cAS.png but..googlevideo.com links from any other people's videos works though. good test: https://i.imgur.com/zsaLzFs.png
  8. No luck as usual. I can only just hope i dont run into this issue, on any other people's videos in the near-future.
  9. Hmm i see. :| Well, i kinda suspect if those darn options werent ever removed in the first place, from the account playback settings page, that would probably fix my account with like "i have slow internet, never play videos in higher quality" - higher than 360p or something, i dont know. That was there in the past... Well for now i sort of have an idea what to do whenever i encounter videos that dont load in WMP ...just turn off the viewtube script temporarily, reload the page so the normal video player loads. that works. At least for now. So far i havent really come across any non-loading videos yet except everything on my own page.. My videos date back to 2009 ..i didnt ever use no fancy codecs or anything. just "xvid" - so i dont know what the hell youtube did to screw them up. https://www.youtube.com/user/kujakiller/videos I dont watch a whole lot. Just gaming-related videos most of the time by users: raocow - DoctorNovakaine - avgn (angry video game nerd) and some others ..luckily all videos from these guys load fine in the WMP-viewtube player....at least i hope it'll stay that way. - This viewtube+WMP combo really helps because it doesnt lag/stutter or anything like the normal youtube player does (firefox-only) - And 720p (the high defintion mp4 option i think ??) has far less CPU usage compared to it
  10. Well just wanted to update: ..i hadn't tried officially a new profile before until this morning. Created a new profile, set it as "default" ..close/reopen firefox so it doesnt have a single edited preference, and no add-ons, etc, except turning on layers.acceleration.draw-fps - But it still didnt make a difference. I just leave firefox idle again -- 20-30 minutes later it's not scrolling 60 fps now. I even went through the trouble of downloading "process monitor" to watch if any files and whatnot are written/read, + process explorer watching the IO read/writes. and absolutely nothing happens at the exact momment it starts. 0 bytes Write/Read ... screw it. But...i'm happy to report that i dont have to worry about it for youtube anymore since getting that "viewtube" script. Where it loads windows media player 11 on a video page, instead of the youtube player itself. And this doesnt have jerky-ness or anything. It's always smooth at all times. What a miracle! ...and no screen tearing either. (probably due to the "video smoothing" and DirectX options enabled.
  11. i've already spent hours (no joke) trying desperately to search about those dang video account playback options last night. ..and there's not 1 single topic that mentions them, in the youtube help articles there. What about my last question ?? About getting "viewtube" to always read from the googlevideo domain instead of youtube, is it possible ?? Dave-H - yea... figures. It's worthless. (if you click View => Page Style => No Style ...then there's clearly stuff related to "AV1" codec ..but no buttons or checkmark boxes or anything to edit.. https://i.imgur.com/9gGRAnk.png
  12. Well im still not exactly happy though, you know ?? ...because there's no way for me to edit any of these settings, cause they dont show up at all in the "playback and performance" screen on https://www.youtube.com/account_playback -- do any of you guys get any sort of video player settings on that page ?? ... I tried like using a windows 10 + firefox 70 user agent directly on that page for example...but didnt make the options appear still. And i really dont like the fact that i would be forced to logout every time i want to watch a video that wont load because my youtube account is apparently setup wrong by those stupid google/youtube people. (the developers or whoever got rid of the freaking options that used to be there) Is it possible for there to be some line(s) added to this viewtube script that would redirect those "numbers.youtube.com" ..to the googlevideo.com domain before the video actually gets loaded (to viewtube/windows media player) -- i dont know a single thing about scripting code, i wouldnt have the first clue how....would it work though ??
  13. Already have the updates, and the tls 1.1 and 1.2, already tried every single possible combination i could a dozen times. just literally trying all of them...even the SSL's. https://i.imgur.com/EI3rl6k.png One more note: Years ago i made a gmail account just for some things. it's not my primary email. I use Yahoo Mail for emailinng/websites/forums/etc, and my youtube account is linked to it. So when i login youtube xxxx@yahoo.com -- but anyway. i logged out of my youtube (kuja killer) -- logged into that gmail account direclty on youtube ....go test my videos, and they all actually work ...with the "googlevideo.com" links ...log out again, back in with my real account kuja killer ....and again... videos dont load, it's the stupid "random numbers.youtube.com" That's why i was saying on the 2nd edit that i think it's my youtube specifically that's got screwed up ..not windows media player itself. ...and there's no stupid video playback performance options (not on the gmail, and not on my yahoo/kuja killer either) to control whatever's causing it to ignrore that googlevideo domain.
  14. Yea i only just replaced my ip address with x's there on the screen just to not expose it ya know ? but i swear i didnt touch anything else. So then i should try something else in that "general.useragent.override.youtube.com" thing ?? I just used what grey_rat said earlier -- Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; CPU OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A403 Safari/8536.25 Well okay... i changed the 5.0 to 4.0, and the 6_0 and 6.0 to 5.0 -- didnt help I then then tried pasting it in firefox's "responsive design" user agent box -- and then the yellow label showed up at the top "we'll stop supporting this soon" and a blue label "you were redirected to desktop, return to mobile [button] ...didnt help ...so i clicked the return to mobile, and then viewtube instantly showed an error about "cant load video player" ..like it didnt work with it whatsoever period. I googled a couple "online youtube ripper" websites cause i was curious. and they all have the googlevideo url when saving from them.. is there some way to force youtube to load from that googlevideo.com instead of youtube.com ?? edit 1: I noticed something in the "playback/performance" page of youtube settings. First of all, its totally worthless showing only "captions/info card" but if i clicked "no style" under View --> Page style -- and scroll all the way down the page, i saw a bunch of AV1 related descriptions. Is that only for chrome or something ? How can i get those to show up in firefox ? Or wont matter ? edit 2: oh my god, after all this time for countless hours of trying a billion things, i just learned what's finally going on! if i signed out of youtube, the video finally loads! and from the googlevideo.com link instead of youtube.... but if i sign back into my account (kuja killer) ..then it wont load at all ...back to the youtube.com link again. Apparently my youtube account is f***ed up. I tried clearing cookies and cache, which made me have to log back in again, and that didn't work. But there's no freaking playback/performance settings except "captions/cards" seriously this just makes me more mad. I know there was always settings for this before like "never play high quality videos, always low quality" or like about having slow internet. I know for a fact that i kept it on the low quality/slow internet option before. so it wasnt windows media player (not yet ?), it wasn't k-lite basic pack ...not codecs...not registry edits/firewall ...nothing. Apparently my own youtube account is what's screwed up with no such options anymore to fix...
  15. I have all of the media file type options enabled, -- i checked windows firewall, and firefox is already on the list of included programs allowed to access internet --- i disabled firewall, restart firefox video still wont play "cant connect" -- I've already disabled plugins and scripts mentioned earlier to try with no luck either -- there isn't any "https" apparently in the win media player 11's options so I wouldnt know how to check with that. I tried adding "enabled: 1" to these 2 entries client/server, in registry editor but still doesn't work "cant connect": I tried doing these things here on this page, didnt help: https://mymce.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/fixing-windows-media-player-cannot-connect-to-the-server/ Yea i was able to save the link normally and download it, and play back the video in a player normally...this was the link. it didn't have "googlevideos". But it still wont freaking show anything other than that stupid "cant connect to server" on here. does it have something to do with that ?? When a video actually load in WMP ...the link is "rs---blahblah.googlevideo.com" ...but when it doesn't load like here...then the link is apparently "rs-blahblah.youtube.com" as seen above.
