This browser does not work for me at all. Attempting to use New Moon 27.6.0 fails and WinRAR spits up a bunch of extraction errors. This is on my T41 with XP SP3:

Try extracting with 7-zip as archive is compressed with LZMA2.

Leak of memory in youtube video. Official Palemoon all fine. Some minutes eating all memory and OS crashing

Does it happen in older build?

I am wondering if vlc soarcecode can be implemented for providing h264 media playback functionality on PM then it may be better as lav requires a good cpu.

There is no difference with LAV and VLC as they all use ffmpeg libraries.

Yes, and no layer acceleration either:

[image cut from quote]

Slower in fact than Firefox ESR.


[image cut from quote]

Mozilla oddly removed all real acceleration on XP after something like Firefox 28.  Palemoon should at least be on par with Firefox in layer acceleration, no?  Not complaining or anything (I've never switched to Palemoon for this reason alone.  Heck, I could really use the 64-bit advantage of it.

Either way, I'll be forced to switch after Mozilla ends ESR for XP.

You may attempt to force layer acceleration with New Moon. You need to set the property "layers.acceleration.force-enabled" to "true" on the about:config page. For me, I also had to set either "layers.prefer-d3d9" or "layers.prefer-opengl" to "true" for it to work for some reason. Maybe it tries D3D10 or higher and just fails when it's not detected, no automatic fallback? Anyway, OpenGL gave me display glitches, so I went with D3D9.

With that, videos also play fine in YouTubes' fullscreen mode, which is otherwise unusable. GPU is a GTX Titan Black in my case, with the last XP x64 driver, 368.81. Not sure how stable it really is though, I've only played with this for a while, then switched it off again, as I don't really need it. Just wanted to see how I can get fullscreen video to render smoothly, because somebody asked me to find a way to do this with New Moon.

It works ! :w00t: Thanks a lot, this is greatly appreciated and much more useful than other trollish topics. :ph34r: It would need more testing but at first glance it seems to work with a NVIDIA 8600M GT and last XP 32 drivers.

Thanks again to you and to roytam1 for all the efforts.

Then okay.  No problem. My poor knowledge.  I am noobs regarding codecs  .What about adding settings suggested by @GrandAdmiralThrawn in next build as default? 

 

https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon/issues/1438

Another decision to kill xp.

Edit :

4k video playback performance is worse.  I found PM uses libpx older version.  Ffvpx should be adopted. 

I have used a pc with i7 6700k and 980ti. I used above Dx9 hack but no success.  Ff52 esr is working like a charm.

Please fix 4k playback issue. 

It is of course xp x86.

I can try updating libvpx with 52esr one, but I think I can't use ffvpx because palemoon's build system can't use assembler flags.

Not to mention you have to fix code to use ffvpx.

Greetings all..

I found my way here by way of the FF mod found here http://wp.xin.at/archives/4059

I have extracted & loaded the latest New Moon on XP/32bit and it loads quick & is VERY light on CPU/mem VERY IMPRESSIVE/THANK YOU!!!

I'm still behind the curve though... my goal is still the same: using HTML5 and not Adobe Flash for video plugin

This is my current status on Youtube...

html5.jpg.a08cf4c4565066c664f1fe0897abfb04.jpg

 

My question: Do I still follow the same procedure (as detailed in above link for FF) for New Moon? Adobe Primetime not needed?

Sorry for my confusion... any help would be appreciated. thanx. :)
