HTML5 Video Test Crashes Browser (SOLVED)

Post by troypulk » 2015-11-03, 15:29

This site crashes my Pale Moon when it didn't before, I'm not sure what changed? opening it in a terminal shows zero error's.

Can someone test this.

It might be something I changed in "about:config"

Thanks

Just crashes as it finishes loading?
I went to the link, and started playing all 3 Buck Bunny videos.
No crashes to be had.

Yes, as soon as it finished loading.

I'll try a new profile and see what happens.

I tried it on 25.7.3 and 26 Beta 3, they are both 64, but X32 and X64 shouldn't matter.

Edit: I have to take it back, I'm running Windows. Yikes, my mistake. You have to wait for someone else on Linux to report.

That test site opens fine for me once I allow it thru NoScript. Tested on two physical machines running LM 17.2 MATE 64-bit w/ Pale Moon 25.7.3 (x64). And. The three test vids play to end with no problems.

No crashes here either. Maybe try a new profile?

I tried a new profile and that fixed it.

I'll have to migrate everything over because I'm not going to try and weed through all the changes made to try and find out what happened.

Thanks for the help.

UPDATE:

I finally stumbled on to why PM was crashing when trying this web page.

Because I'm using SolydX Testing which is Debian and they do not use ffmpeg I was playing around again to see if anything has changed because they said ffmpeg was coming back but what is really needed is gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg which they don't support.

Anyway, in about:config I enabled "media.gstreamer.enabled" to True, doing this crashed PM and false fixed it.
