distorted sound when playing video in native mode

Unread post by dietmar » 2017-11-28, 13:18

Hi,

I just moved to Pale Moon from Firefox as I wanted to keep my Noscript, Cookie, and FTP add-ons. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04, Pale Moon 27.6.1, 64bit. Works great!

There's only one problem so far which I ran into:
Playing an embedded video from a news site such as here: http://www.tagesschau.de/multimedia/video/video-351079.html results in smooth video playback but distorted audio playback. But only if I select User Agent Mode = native.
If I set User Agent Mode to "Firefox Compatibility", both video and audio playback run smoothly.
Is this a bug in Pale Moon or a problem of a non-standard web page?

Regards
Dietmar

Can't say I notice anything odd - on Windows.
Does the same happen with PM 28?

(.no link is no good on my end, no playback.)

After clicking on "biopsin's" link which he provided, I have no video or audio with my 64 bit linux Pale Moon 28.3.1 running in 64 bit linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) Xfce with Firefox Compatibility mode for the user agent. And that includes no buttons anywhere. Just a black colored blank space where the video is.

biospin's link takes me to a page which ssays "Ikke tilgjengelig utenfor Norge". According to Google Translate, that means "Not available outside of Norway".
There's a right way
There's a wrong way
And then there's my way

Since I live in the USA, now I know why I can't see or hear the video. :oops: Next time, I'll have to "translate" some words beforehand. ;)
