I've discovered Pale Moon lately and so far I love it
However I'm running into an annoying trouble, there is no sound when I try to watch any Youtube video (with the HTML5 player - I don't have Flash installed).
I'm using an up-to-date Arch Linux 64 bits, Pale Moon 25.7.0, Openbox, PulseAudio (but there was already no sound when I had just ALSA).
I tried with Opera, Chromium and Firefox and the same videos work flawlessly.
Also I noticed something: with Opera and Chromium the VP9 codec is used, whereas with Firefox and Pale Moon the player uses VP8.
Then I installed all the optional gstreamer packages but that didn't improve the situation.
I use windows but i test youtube with VP8 and all works too (have no flash installed).
Did you try a clean Pale Moon profile?

My GPG Key: 0x01EAFE95
And I have no extensions/addons/plugins installed.
On https://youtube.com/html5 I get "HTMLVideoElement" and "WebM VP8" in blue, everything else is red (I can get "H.264" in blue if I set media.gstreamer.enabled to "true" but there is still no sound anyway).
The culprit was my .asoundrc file (I need it on my system otherwise the sound goes by default through the HDMI output).
I changed the syntax from this:
Code: Select all
Code: Select all
Basically the same information but the first variant totally overrides the system-wide settings, which is a bad thing.
I hope it will be useful for other people who may face the same problem
