So there has to be specific support for specific ffmpeg versions on the browser end.
And different distro may ship with different versions of ffmpeg.

Sounds like it could be a bit of a mess, at times.

Any reason you couldn't plug in an older version of ffmpeg for those browser/distro that aren't clicking, ffmpeg 3.4.1 or so?

Should be soon in Bills 2.53 but this looks to be a compile time fix:

If 2.53 turns out ok I will look into it for a future 2.49.

    @frg

    A few days ago, I installed SeaMonkey 2.53 (WG9's unofficial/unstable version - Build identifier: 20180911130006) in VoidLinux.
    This version solves the problem. FFmpeg 4.0+ (ffmpeg-4.0.2_1) is used and there is no problem to watch MP4/h264 videos ... =D>

    Image


    :-k So, the question is, when will SeaMonkey 2.49.5 be available and if will it support ffmpeg 4.0+?


    BTW, I want to thank WG9's work on SeaMonkey 2.53. But unfortunately, from my point of view, this is NOT a version for everyday use.
    (It consumes twice as much RAM as SeaMonkey 2.49.4, it has giant favicons on the bokmarks sidebar ... etc).








    Cheers!! Image

I still need to backport. The sec fixes came first.

Not here. A lot less than 2.49. Might be add-on related.

Not here. https://imgur.com/a/2cuFul9

Which OS? Might be theme related. This has the Firefox library ported. If you find an error in the css please file a bug.

    :-k I don't know what the reason for the overconsumption of RAM is.
    But disabling six (minus uBlock) of the seven extensions that I use the consumption is practically the same.

    Anyway, I'm not interested in using this version (2.53) or higher versions of SeaMonkey.
    That's why yesterday I deleted it.

    I'm sorry, but it was a mistake on my part. The classic PEBKAC. #-o

    I was using a custom theme. That is obviously NOT compatible with the changes made in this SeaMonkey version.
    So there is NO problem (even with the GTK3 version) in this sense. Since using the Modern theme or default,
    sidebar favicons have the correct size.

    I want to apologize again to you for causing this misunderstanding. :oops:

(
It [2.5.3] consumes twice as much RAM as SeaMonkey 2.49.4

Not seeing that on my end, Win7.

ElTxolo,

check Bills site for the next daily release. Just gave him the ffmpeg 4 patch.

wrt. 2.53. I would rather drop 2.49 now but 2.53 has l10n changes we can't possibly backport.. Mostly my pet project on the way to 2.57 which I just need to bring up to current security. Aside from this I find it much superior to 2.49.x Most of the so called Quantum improvements are already in and it still has full support for classic extensions. I use it daily now.

    This version (SeaMonkey 2.49.5 - Build id: 20180918041345) works perfectly fine (with ffmpeg-4.0.2.2_1) in VoidLinux: Image
