Well, I don't think PM supports some formats by default as well as the newer Firefox or Iceweasel releases, if you go by this page: http://hpr.dogphilosophy.net/test/index.php

Edit: but that can be corrected, see below.

I did find that setting media.gstreamer.enabled=true in about config and having gtreamer0.10-ffmpeg installed got h.264 html5 working. Youtube html5 seems to work fine.

Making that change got all the audio formats except Flac working in PM at the above link.

25.7.2 is now in the repo, along with palemoon-atom 25.7.2, which is for Atom cpus only.
This is a stability update, addressing 2 critical hangs:

Fixed a critical hang caused by recursive reloads that might happen in iframes if its hash changed.
Fixed a critical hang caused by lazy-loading of stylesheets through a specific web programming technique as advocated by Google's PageSpeed.

Been running 25.7.2 for several days with no major problems. Still have more tests to do. Only niggle is that the Navigation Toolbar has
disappeared several times. East enough to reset, but have not found the cause yet.

I've downloaded palemoon-atom with aptitude and took the package over to my netbook with SalentOS (Openbox, based on Ubuntu 14.04). Thanks for providing me with such a possibility! Pale Moon runs on all of my machines, only on my fresh LXQt I prefer Qupzilla.

Just came actoss an interesting info:
...and a note for Palemoon users in general:

Palemoon does not have usage of gstreamer enabled by default (it will be enabled by default on the next NBE ISO).
You can enable it by typing about:config into the address bar in Palemoon, then search for 'gstreamer' and you'll see a setting called media.gstreamer.enabled. It will be set to 'False', you can set it to 'True' by double-clicking it. Then restart Palemoon.

Although Palemoon's built-in WebM (vp8/9, vorbis) support means Youtube did work without Flash and without gstreamer enabled, many other websites with video content still didn't. With gstreamer enabled most stuff works. I have done away with Flash on my netbook entirely now.

Note that you may need to install some gstreamer packages, though IIRC the last Netbook ISO has many of them anyway.
Nonetheless here are related packages:

Code: Select all

$ pacman -Si palemoon-bin
...
Optional Deps  : gstreamer0.10-base-plugins: vorbis decoding, ogg demuxing
                 gstreamer0.10-good-plugins: webm and mp4 demuxing
                 gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins: aac, vp8 and opus decoding
                 gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins: h.264 and mp3 decoding
                 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg: more decoders
...


https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=7319
The plugins seem to be installed (by default or as palemoon dependencies) except for the 'bad' ones. But the setting in about:config is set false by default, as Rob wrote.

We were asked by the Pale Moon Developer not to change any of those configuration options if we wanted to continue to use the "Pale Moon" name. We have the option of changing the name and then having the ability to change those configurations, but we didn't do that.

Anyway, we now have the built-from-source Pale Moon 26.0.0 and the repackaged-from-binary palemoon-atom 26.0.0 in the main repository. This is a rather big "under-the-hood" update, and you can read the release notes here: http://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml

I found that if Youtube gives you the sorta sad icon and says your browser is deprecated, just go into Edit/Preferences/Advanced/General, turn off Firefox compatibilty mode, then close and reopen the Youtube tab.

Well, that mystifies me--I didn't have libnss3-dev installed at all when I built them, and it will install if you have the stock Wheezy libnss3 2:3.14.5 installed instead of the one from the test repo. However, Pale Moon should be depending on its own internal libnss3 and other libraries, so something's going on with the new build. In the future, we should figure out how to have dh_shlibs go after the correct internal libraries instead of the system versions.

It appears this could be worked around by updating the test repo version of libnss3 to Jessie's 2:3.17.2, which would a good thing for security updates, anyway. Let me try that.

Edit: Yes, the nss3 update fixes that issue. I'll upload them soon.
