  1. Where would i get this by the way ? clicking the x86 link on that topic says "Access Denied You don't have permission to access that path on this server." I see the original author of the post has never edited it from 2009, so that link is obviously outdated. And yea sorry for the typo earlier. I just got it again a minute ago.. and as soon as it happened, i quickly went to the process explorer again while that "explorer encountered a problem" window was up (didnt click out of it) and none of the k-lite dll's were loaded at that momment) ..and as usual, it just said "unknown"
  2. I see. I still just dont know what's wrong. - Umm...would doing this help at all ?? The next time it crashes, which i dont have a clue when. If it's able to capture the dll or whatever file is wrong ?? since the regular windows crash window itself always says "unknown model"
  3. 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. I started this topic a few minutes after it did though. But i bet it'll come soon. ** by the way, these 2 files seem to always be present (from wmp 11) -- i dont know what an ASF type of video or whatever is, and i've never had one in my life before. (never will) ...and i'm not sure what "wmvcore" does or is for. but again it seems like there not part of the problem. https://i.imgur.com/RUhiDbc.png
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. "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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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 ??
  15. 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.
  16. 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...
  17. 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.
  18. Still didnt help. damnit!! I installed windows media player 11 - nothing. --- I checked the IE 8 internet options, enabled TLS 1.0 - nothing, --- i checked the 2 about:config entries in firefox for security.tls.version.min and security.tls.version.max (min is 1, max is 3) - nothing, --- i disabled the youtube classic script like you said, i added the custom user agent you said, - nothing https://i.imgur.com/HfNpjca.png I checked these, these are the defaults already, but i turned them off to test ...turn them back on - nothing https://i.imgur.com/EVzlUy3.png I went back to the installer for the k-lite codec basic, i made sure those http settings were checked and did the file associate thing you said, to reinstall it... nothing what the helllllll
  19. Argh this is making me so dang fustrated. :( https://i.imgur.com/nIg2OzR.png
  20. I see... Yea okay i tested it once just to see. Turned off the polymer script for a momment, and yea. The video player didnt disappear or anything like that. But.. certain types of videos still wont load in Windows Media Player at all, no matter how much i mess with all the settings, low/high quality, mp4, m3u8, auto, DVL ..still always "cant connect" or that ..file not supported message. Does it not read from the new media player plugin file, and tries to read only from the original WMP file or something ? I disabled the old file in firefox plugins list...so only the updated new one that i downloaded from you, is being used. I already installed this 13.8.5 from this page, so that cant be it. https://codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_basic.htm Or do i need windows media player 11 ?? I seriously dont have a clue. to test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKmwEATN4sQ
  21. Hey there, im going to post/ask here about "viewtube" that i seen alot of dicussion on here about. I was going to try this out today.. and I installed viewtube with TamperMonkey. After reading posts here and the instructions on the site. I set it up with Windows Media Player 9, and I installed the last official supported version of win XP "K Lite Basic" Codec Pack. But i have 2 problems. 1st: it works with most videos so far that are "not" avc1 according to the "stats for nerds" window on the normal youtube player screen. But... any videos that are avc1 (or when the plugin-container.exe starts up) ...then it wont work, and i can't figure out why...here we go again. :( I'll keep clicking play but it wont ever do anything, so i right click, click "error details" and always get this, saying "cant connect to server" - I obviously have all the codecs and such, so..i dont understand what's wrong. Any ideas ?? https://i.imgur.com/VitpGgj.png edit: if i try "direct video link" - it still wont play, but instead error details say "Player does not support the format your trying to play" ..but how ?? - i have the plugin there obviously. I got it from user "grey_rat" in this thread, with version "" --------------------------- 2nd problem: I have a "disable polymer" script for TamperMonkey as well, so that it will always force the classic youtube, it does worry me that you guys saying that it may stop working next month. I think this is somehow conflicting with the viewtube, because like the page sort of it refreshes itself after a few seconds removing the "polymer" from the end of the URL. and when that happens, the whole entire video player disappears from the screen ...and about 30 seconds later, Viewtube will say "cant get video element" https://i.imgur.com/GvZ58pc.png Is it possible to somehow stop the page refresh so it doesnt remove that part from the URL when the page loads ? (I wouldnt have a clue what code to add to the script) - I always have to mash the STOP button on the browser before it reloads itself or whatever-the-heck, so that it doesnt delete the viewtube part.
  22. I don't really remember cause I didnt really quite pay attention to it. So i'm not 100% sure. I would always restart firefox every couple days on average though. I'm very depressed ...i tried that UOC+Enforce patch mentioned and ...no, still the same. Still doesnt last very long until scrolling is no longer 100% smooth (including watching youtube videos, until the smoothness starts skipping/stuttering) The 120 FPS i thought really was going to work, when i turned on the "draw fps" thing to monitor it, but it just gradually drops after awhile ..even at like 80 or 90-something...the smoothness is no longer happening. That UOC thing also breaks slack, ..it will never accept the Firefox 60 user agent i have to use to get past the "browser no longer supported" screen. I was guessing it was somethiing with all the dozens of "network.xxx" lines i saw in the UOC file. I don't know. Also youtube gets weird looking in Full Screen, like it doesnt fill the whole screen anymore, and I can see parts of the video images of "related videos" on the side for example. 1 test I did earlier was...open firefox, just only 1 active tab, nothing else. There's no animations or scripts or anything like that going. Everything is just fine at first, so i minimize firefox and come back like 20 minutes later. Never touched the computer or anything, bring back up firefox and....no more 100% smoothness (youtube watching as well) It just doesnt make sense. ...i give up. i have to live with this then. *cry* Chrome doesnt ever have these problems. But probably because of how every tab is an actual seperate chrome.exe, and closing said tab will terminate that particular instance of the chrome process. (while the firefox multiprocess mode does not) - But i get a yellow label for youtube saying there going to get rid of it soon (as this topic was originally about) ..also slack doesnt work with Chrome there, for some reason has messed up page rendering problems that make it almost impossible to see anything on the screen except the options/info at the top of the screen, firefox is fine though.
  23. Thats the last possible thing i was thinking about, for the graphics hardware. I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop, which is Intel GM 945 Graphics. I get errors and/or "blocked/blacklisted" in the troubleshooting info page. https://i.imgur.com/jrLTZ25.png https://i.imgur.com/tNJNHih.png All the "force enables" with everything dont help as i mentioned earlier, to get past those errors or blocks. Is that why the opengl, webgl, and use hardware acceleration all dont do a thing ?? And according to this page, the only supported version not blocked is "4926" -- https://wiki.mozilla.org/Blocklisting/Blocked_Graphics_Drivers#Intel_cards And this page ...the last possible update that was ever published for this model was 4814 - https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/drivers/driversdetails?driverid=984x8&oscode=ww1&productcode=latitude-d620#otherversion So it wont even make a difference if i try to install that since I would of needed 4926 i guess, which is from Intel 945G ...not GM ..(a different motherboard type) So i'm seriously screwed then huh ??
  24. hrm dang. well it doesnt matter wether i use sandboxie or not, that's defintely not it. I've still been spending hours nonstop and still havent had any luck. More things i've tried from all the endless threads i've looked at from google search: webgl.disabled, gfx.webrender.force-disabled (okay this one didnt exist in about config, so i added it manually to test), layers.prefer-opengl, webgl.disable-angle, gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.force-enabled Nothing period keeps firefox smooth at all times beyond the first few minutes, until having to restart whole browser. I've made purely zero progress still.
  25. Hmm i see. Well i did notice that apparently the plugin-container only shows up on videos that use the "av1" codec like my video "8-way scrolling test" or other people's videos. Does not show up on "vp9" or others. That's why it seems some videos worked, and others not. And gosh, wow I had no idea that it was now soley free. I've just been currently now using firefox normally without sandboxie at the momment since then. I seriously don't believe i would get a virus or anything bad like that anytime in the near-future. So now at the momment i'm just extremely annoyed, fustrated, and getting headache's about this "smooth scrolling" issue i explained above. Again, it's perfectly butter-smooth at first opening firefox ...but shortly after wont be as much. It's driving me insane that I cant find out how to keep any regular webpage scrolling/youtube smooth permenately, instead of ... only for a short period of time, until next time i close/restart browser. Sorry if i de-railed this topic too much. Didnt mean to on purpose.
