I got the opposite experience with the most recent VLC. It crashed when loading regular local files without giving me a reason or a log.

VLC plays local files fine here on the XP VM (3.5GB RAM, 2 processors, video memory 128MB).

But you can always try ffplay (no GUI whatsoever) from:

https://rwijnsma.home.xs4all.nl/files/ffmpeg/?C=M;O=D

[Edit]

(Offtopic)

To play YouTube video's through ffplay:

youtube-dl --ignore-config -o - 4aXi3lOmICI | ffplay -i -

Limited to 720p; I could only get 1080p working with the following command using the yt-dlp fork of youtube-dl (x86 version doesn't work on XP!):

yt-dlp --ignore-config -o - -f "bv*[height<=1080][ext=mp4]+ba[ext=m4a]/b[ext=mp4]" --downloader ffmpeg --external-downloader-args "ffmpeg:-movflags dash" 4aXi3lOmICI | ffplay -i -

Note that ffmpeg must be compiled with:

--enable-demuxer=dash --enable-libxml2

Upstream's cubeb library update caused issues for some people, so they reverted to older build.

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=27274

Is it a coincidence they deleted WinMM backend right in this particular timeframe? I think it was inevitable either way given their philosophy.

Thanks all for the great input - much appreciated!

I am having a good experience with VLC, very happy to find out they are still supporting XP as well!

After opening VLC, by clicking Media > Open Network Stream, it is possible to put in a Youtube link. Playback is very smooth

Edit: I am able to run 720p on the Celeron without any big frame drops, within a VM environment. Audio and video both work and jumping to different parts in the video goes quick as well :)

I'm glad VLC is working well for you! And yes, it is truly amazing that the VideoLAN team is still supporting it, through security updates if little else...the 3.0.x series is solid, especially if you're running a more modern machine that can take full advantage of its capabilities.

If you want to try either of them out, 2.2.8 or 1.1.11 (my favorite version) are also worth a look. 1.1.11 still does everything I need it to do, and runs VERY well on older machines...it also has experimental GPU acceleration (which really helps if your video card supports it). Both versions should offer improved performance in your VM, and run especially well in native XP...I recommend 1.1.11, but 2.2.8 is a bit more modern and has some more features.

@roytam1 - Thank you for sharing the new binaries! I'm sure PM27/KM76 fans will enjoy them very much.

I will be switching between the Humming Owl and ArcticFoxie releases, curious to see what the differences are!

Keep us posted.

Note that I have uploaded updated rebuilds in the pinned XP 360Chrome thread.

Have you guys been following the discussion (I use the term generously) regarding Tobin's demand that @feodor2 remove his contributions at @feodor2's repo? Sparks are definitely flying there (172 posts as of now), though unfortunately the situation as such is as far from a reasonable solution as ever. Among other things, as could be expected, MSFN members and XP fans in general are once again getting portrayed as incorrigible criminals, etc. etc. by you know who. :thumbdown Fortunately for me I'm not on Github, so it's easier to resist the urge to get into it with Tobin and Co., because I'm afraid I could seriously blow my fuse there... :realmad: Fortunately they have received some fierce opposition as well; I only recognized @dmiranda from here, but there's even a Christian pastor on their case. :worship: If you think your nerves can handle it, take a look if you haven't yet. In some sense, maybe I shouldn't urge others to participate there when I won't be doing it myself, but if you have any good ideas, @feodor2 could certainly use them and your support in general. I very much doubt anyone could convince Tobin to come to his senses, though... I sincerely hope @roytam1 remains careful enough not to give them an excuse to do a similar thing to him.

So who want to be the new owner?

Based on the license thread at the repo, I'm not sure if this is still relevant. If it is, I have to say that while I've been doing my private builds based on your Centaury and I'm very grateful for your work, regrettably this is not something I can take on right now...

Oh, and welcome @cmccaff1, and thanks for your insights before!

@mixit - Thank you for the warmth of your welcome!
I'm not much of a coding expert, so it is very difficult for me to help on the programming front.
If I had to propose something (and this is assuming all else fails), I actually thought someone in the Github discussion had a decent idea with forking from 52ESR and then pulling applicable patches from Waterfox.
There should be plenty of applicable patches, not only from Waterfox but other Mozilla/Gecko-compatible projects, that could be used to enhance and extend 52ESR (such as the recent
cubeb_winmm.c overflow fix [THANK YOU, SIR!!!] that fixed the infamous '23:18' bug with audio/video playback).
If I'm not mistaken (and anyone who has more knowledge, please correct me if I'm wrong), 55.0a1 is the last Gecko codebase with a possibility of being forked for XP, as it came very shortly before the Rust requirement was introduced.
So 52ESR and 55.0a1 might both be good starting points...it's all a matter of whether we want the older, longer-supported 52ESR which has more security patches and a variety of other updates, or 55.0a1 which should be a little bit more compatible with the modern web.
Just something to consider...I hope this helps, and again this is assuming the worst case scenario happens (but it ain't over 'til it's over!)

Hi Roytam

waiting for win 32 version of Arcticfox 27.12.0

 

as I stated before, I don't compile point-releases. dev branch are compiled but (mostly) not uploaded since there is still some bugs that preventing for daily use. and I compile it as verification to see if those changes are working on windows.
