Re: Opera can't play HTML5 videos on some sites

This seems to be a problem on quite a few Chromium based browsers. https://forums.opera.com/topic/24299/plugin-path-in-the-home-directory-libffmpeg-so/4 Debian does not package chromium ffmpeg codecs from chromium's source, but uses some libav* libs to give its chromium the needed codecs for better ...

High praise indeed!

From Distrowatch.
For a very long time, I thought that I would never fall in love ever again. That thought ended when I met this distro a month ago. It just does everything right. I pity the fool who thinks that I'm exaggerating in any way.
I second that emotion.

Re: [SOLVED] HTML5 videos not playing on latest stable Opera (51.0.2830.40)

I tried Vivaldi many moons ago and I found that videos on some sites didn't work (Mail Online and BBC are two examples). I read something about a bug in Vivaldi, so I simply reverted back to Firefox. Anyway, about a week ago I read https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-08-15-censorship-alert-mozilla-plan...

Re: Potamus audio player

This may be a dumb question, but I've got to ask it. I was just Googling libmad when I came across the following: Implementing MP3 player in C https://lauri.võsandi.com/2013/12/implementing-mp3-player.en.html In case of Linux based machines one could directly use alsa-lib feed the samples to kernel,...

Re: Potamus audio player

Admittedly I usually play FLAC files and have a fairly well tweaked PA config already with sox-vhq resampler and 32 bit float processing. My PA has no tweaks, so I'm used to the default audio output. I can hear a possible improvement in higher frequency clarity and "airiness" with 320kb/s mp3 files...

Re: Potamus audio player

I feel I've got to put a quick review of Potamus together because it is superb. Potamus uses libmad to play mp3s. Here's a quick explanation of what this does: http://libzplay.sourceforge.net/LIBMAD.html Because MAD provides full 24-bit PCM output, applications using MAD are able to produce high qua...
