BionicPup64 has MPV media player which is quite good but of course the user controls are rather rudimentary.

I compiled GNOME-MPV from source. Version 0.16
It is GTK+3 only and support for this in Puppy is not perfect.
I notice that there is a "Pause" icon which is missing (once you start to play something)
Otherwise the GUI looks quite nice and offers better user controls.
You can drag and drop media files or right-click > Open With > GNOME-MPV
In case anyone wants to TEST I have uploaded to:-
http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks
Installed size is only around 450k

Palemoon uses 90% of cpu for me when watching youtube videos. Chromium only 5%.

ThinkPad X121e
CPU : AMD C-50 processor (dual core) at 1.0GHz
Video : AMD Radeon HD6250
RAM : 4GB

A result of XenialPup 32bit playing the same YouTube video:
Both Pale Moon 28 and Chromium 80 consume about 50% of CPU, except that Pale Moon consumes about 90% at the beginning of the playback.

As for Pale Moon, I switch "gfx.xrender.enabled" to "false." This reduces a considerable amount of CPU consumption.

Chromium 80 (ubuntu official build) is hardware-accelerated.
Chromium 79, which is not hardware-accelerated, is worse than Pale Moon.

Pale Moon seems to be a good choice as a default browser with about half the size of Chromium.

Pale Moon high CPU usage.
There is a fix for Linux they are working on.
Testing it for now.

You can try to make the changes.

about:config in address slot, will bring up config window.
Make changes.

Try this one first.
layers.acceleration.force-enabled

This one may or may not help or be needed.
First try without changing this.
media.hardware-video-decoding.force-enabled

Shutdown and restart Pale Moon, so changes are being used.

about:support in address slot, will bring up support page, where you can see what changed.

Helped my Pale Moon v28.8.2.1

Also, Pale Moon v28.8.2.1 fixes You tube.
Quote:
YouTube deprecating their old web UI. This change will enable the new YouTube UI by default.

Wonder why they would recommend Chrome! Idea

When I was testing various browsers, I encountered a warning message
in youtube using basilisk.
Quote:
We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For the best experience please update your browser.


The user agent basilisk uses for youtube is
Quote:
general.useragent.override.youtube.com;Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 Basilisk/52.9.2020.01.12


I suppose the goal is to eventually allow only "chromium and derivatives"
browsers.

hi ProgRob,

i've been trying to figure this out for a while with no luck Very Happy
i think it may be to do with JWM


Thanks for the response, Phil. It might help you to know that

a) I am running OpenBox rather than JWM
b) On the same machine I also have Xenial and Compton works perfectly in that

Let me know if there are any tests I can run to help diagnose.

Regards,
Rob

I was getting that from YouTube with Pale Moon.
After updating Pale Moon to v28.8.2.1 that warning stopped showing up.
That update fixed Pale Moon.

just an aside, this machine has been really troublesome and has not wanted to boot a fair collection of mainstream linux distros including a newly released mx 19.1 designed for newer 'difficult' hardware so kudos the only thing we couldn't get working was the sound

PostPosted: Thu 20 Feb 2020, 08:14    Post subject: missing speaker icon at startup
Subject description: a fix to get sound volume control
 

On my faster computers, the speaker icon for sound volume control
sometimes or always does not appear at startup. Placing the following
script in /root/startup has fixed the problem for me.

sleep 15
retrovol -hide


Remove /root/Startup/autostart/retrovol.desktop

I add this script on xenialpup64 as well.

Create the script in geany and make it executeable (permissions).

The 15 second delay was chosen arbitrarily. It can probably be much
less and still be reliable.

Hello.

/usr/local/bin/pnscan is identified as a malware by ClamAV.

Bionicpup64 also has /usr/bin/pnscan, so there are two of "pnscan."

I wonder what to do with the situation.

The executable /usr/local/bin/pnscan is 32bit in a 64bit distro
Looks like it was installed as one of the files of PeasyPort LAN Scanner.
Probably best to delete it.

The executable /usr/bin/pnscan is the correct 64bit version. The peasyport script will be calling this one as it has priority anyway (/usr/bin has priority over /usr/local/bin).

I wonder if ClamAV will still complain with the 32bit one removed? If so I reckon you should ignore it or regard it as a false result and add it to a list of such if possible.
Someone with more knowledge than me will correct me if I am wrong.

I did not know it was a 32bit executable. Embarassed

No. ClamAV identifies only /usr/local/bin/pnscan as a malware.

Now I am relieved. Thank you for the information.

Version 4.0:

- added '-s, --skip-symlinks' CLI option (do not follow symlinks)
- extract in the symlink's dir, not the target's
- can extract most of compressed initrd* files in one go
- use also 7z to extract DEB
- extract attachments from video files
- better compatibility with older/BusyBox versions of 'fdisk'
- fix extracting absolute symlinks from RAR archives (thanks to don570)
- refactoring, fixes, improvements

hi thinkpadfreak & OscarTalks,

i think the 32bit pnscan in /usr/local/bin got into the distro by woofce grabbing the wrong peasyport.pet which includes pnscan.

interestingly the 64bit pnscan (which is the official ubuntu version) in /usr/bin is also detected as malware when uploaded to virustotal, although clamav misses it.

it seems that it can be used as a hacktool and is not malware in itself. see this post at pnscans github page https://github.com/ptrrkssn/pnscan/issues/2
