  1. What Are You Listening To?

    The Supremes - Let Yourself Go [Larry Levan Mix] - 1979
  2. FFMpeg and Windows XP in 2017

    Great thanks a lot.
  3. I always had that trouble with any version of FF and also with Pale Moon / New Moon. It always freezes at 23 min : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1126635 It happens on YT and on any site using HTML5 videos, a workaround was to use Flash Player instead of HTML5 but that no longer works. I have an old Dell laptop with a NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT. It seems that not everyone have this bug, but what cause this ? The graphic card ? A power saving bug ? A buffering bug ? It's a mystery. :-P
  4. Modern Browser Project 2018

    It seems that add blocking can make a browser horribly slow when using blocking lists because there's a huge number of blocking rules. That's what I found when trying Otter browser under XP.
  5. Antivirus for xp?

  6. @roytam1, do you have an idea about this bug ? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1126635 I have it with any html5 video and with any Firefox release including New Moon and Basilisk.
  7. Antivirus for xp?

    If we need to run that kind of rotten bloatware, the advantage of running XP is totally lost. The only thing you can do to secure any kind of web browser is to use malware lists in µBlock Origin and to use a fake user agent. Nowadays there's a lot of "security experts" on forums, they seem really worried about how secured is their computer. I think it's because they don't know how a computer work. So they think that constantly play the Russian roulette with system updates gives them a great level of security and of course a great knowledge in computing. In fact most of these never wrote a single line of code in their life and totally ignore how a software work. That's precisely why they are so worried, not understanding how their system can be screwed up. I always wonder how many of these "experts" disable Remote Desktop services and of course how many of these "experts" regularly backup their data. How many of these "experts" don't save the password of their bank account on their computer then the browser asks to do so. Personally, the only system I hope is secured is the server of my bank account but for my personal computer I don't care a d*** if anyone get access to my holiday pictures. Instead of believing in fake security, I prefer on the contrary to know that my computer is vulnerable then I take care and I do some backups. I would do exactly the same with a supposedly "secured" system. There's surely some backdoors in any MS system anyway so computing security is done for simple minded people. Have a nice day.
  8. There's not much changes for now Congratulations.
  9. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    It's unfortunate that it is so complicated, that would be a good choice. I tried to compare FF 52 ESR and Chrome 49 using Page Speed Monitor to compare page loading time and Chrome is clearly faster than FF. Apparently it's not possible to use the extension with Pale Moon so I don't know exactly. It seems faster than FF 52 and slower than Chrome but I don't know exactly.
  10. XP Apps Repository

    Great !!! thanks a lot. Is it the only patch needed to build ffmpeg ? https://github.com/tumagonx/XPitory/blob/master/static_port/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-3.x.patch I thought it would be a much bigger diff. Thanks again.
  11. I wonder if it would be possible to use LAVSplitters instead of Primetime thing.
  12. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    Microsoft, Google and others done great efforts to kill XP so that people buy new hardware and new licenses, so it decreases of course. Firefox lost users because it's a bloated crap. In one hand they say they want to make a better Internet but in reality they didn't fix some html5 bugs that exist for years and now they drop million of XP users exactly like Google does so they are not better than Google.
  13. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    I'm not sure but it seems that QtWeb has its own cert management like Firefox does and it seems to work very well with ECC. Unfortunately it uses WebKit and seems totally dead.

    I use this one http://prxbx.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=2172 with a badly written start/stop Py script I done : ProxHTTPSProxyMII.zip That's very useful for all the cloudflare hosted sites with free account.
