This may be related your particular distro setup. Make sure you have fairly recent version of ffmpeg and audio components. I also use Pale Moon on Linux (Arch), again 32-bit and no such issues seen ever.

I also do not have any crackling sounds at the end of a YouTube video or any other videos which would include Vimeo using 64 bit linux Pale Moon 28.9.1 running in 64 bit linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia) Xfce.

And this is on a almost 10 year old desktop tower computer with it's Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card which came with this old machine. The codecs and all the other drivers were installed automatically by the Mint installer when I installed Mint 19.3 for the very first time.

I also never have run into this sound problem with linux Pale Moon and I have been using linux Pale Moon since January of 2014.

I'm not familiar with the AntiX distro. If antiX has a forums site, maybe you could ask if anyone is using linux Pale Moon in your distro and see if they have had the same sound problems or not viewing videos.

antiX is based on Debian, and is using my MX Linux package builds in their repo.

That Dell with its Atom processor is quite slow compared with modern machines,or even full size laptops of the same vintage--I wonder if that has anything to do with it? You can also open local video files with PM to see if they have the same trouble as streaming video. In the terminal, for example, in the same folder as the video file:

Code: Select all

I know this sounds like spam but I have no intention to spam. I'm just imitating someone else who frequents this forum who has slammed others for this semantic mistake in the past.

GEE WHIZ PUT THAT STUFF INTO A code TAG!

[Sound familiar?]

hurka, it's just a warning from me before you get blasted with a much less civilized warning from someone else.

Whether the cake is a lie or not, I can tell you the missile was a dud. Excuse me -- :lol:

OK, I'm done laughing. What version of Firefox ESR are you using? How long is this crackle -- or is it a transient pop? I've found that Pale Moon and a lot of older versions of Firefox open the sound card device only when needed, for power saving reasons. Generally speaking, laptop speakers are wired so that when no application is using them they are turned off. Completely. But when an application actually is about to use them, the sound card will electrify the speakers in preparation for use. Last time I checked, whenever Pale Moon finishes playing any audio file (or video with audio), Pale Moon closes the audio device. If you were using PulseAudio, then the speakers wouldn't click; PulseAudio (generally speaking -- this is a slight oversimplification) constantly keeps the speakers on whether any applications need them or not. But it looks like AntiX doesn't use PulseAudio. Right now I'm typing this on Pale Moon 28.8.4 (32-bit) -- OK, fine, New Moon (since I compiled it from source) -- on Gentoo (also 32-bit) without PulseAudio and I'm witnessing some clicks at the end of audio files.

Sorry my post led to some spam there. I didn't mean it.
