Hmm, I wonder how FF 3.5's Theora rendering likes Xvesa. Anyone using FF 3.5 care to try?

Here's a page with the <video> tag:

Couldn't get sound to work using OSS (I didn't try with ALSA). Video worked though

FF 3.5 only supports ALSA atm. How was the cpu usage?

Uses about 12% from .8% when not running;  jumps around a bit.... :)

I'd try ALSA, but for some reason it doesn't seem to work with tc_2.1. Modules load, but no sound. Worked ok with tc_1.  

OSS works fine with flash

Thanks for the testing.

FF uses liboggplay, which does support OSS, but they have limited it to ALSA themselves (if no alsa at build time, no ogg either. Possibly other limitations in their code too.). ALSA has a plugin available, so that all apps using the ALSA libs can output directly to OSS drivers ( http://insanecoding.blogspot.com/2009/05/perfect-sound-with-oss-version-4.html ). We don't have an extension yet for the ALSA plugins though.

Dep hell? Never believe what the big distros list, they usually build with everything :P
BLFS says it's only libasound + pkg-config.

I get that if I try:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo alsaconf
$ sudo udevtrigger --subsystem-match=sound

..but, things work fine with:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/alsasound start

either way, I can't get more than some clicks.  From lsmod:
 
snd_pcm:   snd_pcm_oss,snd_intel8x0,snd_intel8x0m,snd_ac97_

also, boot will now hang if OSS.tczm is present.

I would guess that firefox will work with the dbus and dbus-glib extensions, now that dbus_glib has been split out.

Maybe worth checking before I retire the dbus_glib extension?

Firefox proper does depend on dbus_glib.  Elsa it wont function.
