Latest Version of Software Running on XP

Recommended Posts


That's presumably the latest version.
Does it install and work on Windows XP?
:dubbio:

I have not installed it yet, at least I want to find a changelog

I'm pretty sure that 7.39.x and above will not install on XP, but I'd be delighted to be proved wrong!
AFAIK the last version that works on XP is 7.38.0.101.

K-Lite Codec Pack dropped support for Windows XP with version 14.0

The latest version that works with Windows XP is 13.8.2 which is recent and supports many codecs, but it will get older and older within the following months. This sucks because without the K-Lite Codec Pack, there won't be new updates for LAVFilters, MPC-HC and we won't be able to open videos encoded with brand new codecs. At the current stage of things, we have compatibility with pretty much any kind of codecs ever invented with any resolution, bitdepth and color space, except a few things involved with the new AV1, which is currently under development https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV1.

Anyway, the open codecs project still support Windows XP, so we will still be able to get updates for PotPlayer and we will still be able to open videos made with new codecs, including the latest version of AV1. I don't know how long they'll keep XP support, though.

Times are tough...

@FranceBB I can keep repacking , porting codecs for XP . Which codecs do you think worth including in Code pack ?

As long as potplayer and the open codec project are alive, nothing, but in the future, I would say compatibility with newer version of famous under development codecs, like HEVC, but for the moment we are still safe. I don't think potplayer and open codecs will drop their support until 2019, then we'll see. FFmpeg and ffms2 have already been backported and are constantly updated, x265 works under XP as well as avisynth frameserver and pretty much every filter for that frameserver. As long as all these things don't break, we are kinda safe, however we are living on borrowed times...

I have successfully tested the preliminary (beta) release of Firefox 52.7.3 posted on Mozilla's FTP on March 23. I tested the GB English version since no US version exists as of yet. I did not encounter any issues under Windows XP SP3.

Hi!

Does anyone have any suggestions for playing videos under the latest revision of FF for XP3? (i.e. within browser.)

Can't play CNN and many others. What might be causing this? HTML5?

:unsure:

Assuming that Flash is working OK, it is probably that those sites now need HTML5 and have no Flash fallback.
There's a long thread here about adding HTML5 support to Firefox on XP.
It works very successfully for me.
:yes:

Hello guys.

Explorer++ is going to drop XP support. It is a very useful windows explorer enhancer/replacer that served people for many years.

The main (partly outdated) site is here: https://explorerplusplus.com/ and github page is here: https://github.com/derceg/explorerplusplus along with the appveyor page with fresh builds here: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/derceg/explorerplusplus

Recent builds are no longer working on XP because minimum OS version required in exe is now 6.

Last working build is 1.4.0.121 https://ci.appveyor.com/project/derceg/explorerplusplus/build/1.4.0.121

Please see more and post on this issue, if you care for this fine piece of software: https://github.com/derceg/explorerplusplus/issues/107

At this moment author seems to be not too adamant on dropping support, so we must act quickly! :)

does the latest K-lite still have the MPC 6.4 packaged with it, if not I may have to save it and put back in when "If i install this newest version

I find the k-lite very very handy for WMP,
