    hi guys

    loaded
    alsa-config.tcz
    alsa.tcz
    pulseaudio.tcz
    flash is loaded in firefox
    firefoxESR.tcz

    some sites play sound  vimeo and other sites 
    some do not   youtube
   
    just a question

    i have linux mint 8.2 xfce with firefox and their addons
    plays everything
    can this be cannibalized to make a firefox + addons tcz
    might save some work 
    since they will get the stuff together each release

    they will also support flatpaks in 8.3
    cannibalize a firefox one
   
    maybe make a script
   
    load up mint plus addons
    script makes a tcz

   ok lets analyze this
   correct me if im wrong

    sound plays fine on computer
    sound plays fine on some websites
    adding deleting plug ins changes what sites will play
    ff in mint plays all sites fine
    ff in mint has a load of different plug ins

    its got to be one or more missing plug ins for firefox
   
   how can i get all the plug ins mint has and put them in ff in tinycore or
   how can i transfer the ff and its plug ins from mint to tiny core

   dont know its quite a maze of links and binaries in there
   but thats my mission 

   couldnt even think of doing this with any other distro
   tinycore is a leggo set
   best designed distro there is 

   i looove tinycore --- wolfman jack

Do you have Pulseaudio running?
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

@ulfr  it’s possible and quite likely mint have compiled ff with Alsa support since AIUI the alsa code is still present in ff source code.   Mozilla simply disabled alsa support for whatever the reason...  meanwhile the Mozilla developers have built in support for pulseaudio.  Their reasoning is pulseaudio resolves all of their sound issues and is provided by most larger distro’s by default.   

This move to support pulseaudio doesn’t help us at all, leaving us with only a few options..

You could compile ff with alsa support as pre-v52.0 once did.

It’s not practical to compile each new ff release for the tcz repo as their latest version often makes the last extension obsolete before it had chance to make it into the repo!!

The easy solution is to install “pavucontrol” extension and use it to configure pulseaudio (which is not intuitive when it comes to configuration of hardware and streams).
If you don’t mind the overhead then use pulseaudio, or better still use pavucontrol extension which provides an intuitive graphical interface with pulseaudio providing easy hardware configuration. Audio stream redirection and a volume control to boot!

Apulse works great in most scenarios. However since it provides only a few features from  the full pulseaudio you may find it doesn’t support your specific hardware configuration.
In which case you have to install the full pulseaudio application. 
Unless you are familiar with configuration of pulse audio I’d simply install pavucontrol


Most website developers test their multimedia on the main os’s and major distro’s only which leaves us a little in the dark as to which additional audio extensions we need to load to provide support for our fav web sites.

Despite popular stories to the contrary Flash is still used by most multimedia websites. You’ll always need the latest version of flash installed for those sites which fail to function without the latest version.

Sorry if I made any typo’s, it’s hard to write more than a few words on Tapatalk.  I’ll review the post ASAP on a PC

    thanks for all the help and info
    seems like a very complex issue
    and possibly will get only more so with firefox 57 etc

    i loaded pulseaudio.tcz so i guess it is running

    i would like to make a tcz
    or what i often use a directory linked in
    (so it doesn't have to be squashed)
    and include as much of firefox and its add ons as possible
    so one could easily switch between different ff versions on the same core 
   
    since mint seems to have set up a version of firefox that has all this
    why not use that to start
    by just copying out what they have into a link dir
    no reason to duplicate work already done

    however its a maze of links in there
    so ill have to figure out what i need and where it is

    anyway it will be a lot of fun

    my work around now is that i just download the videos
    and play them in vlc 

    any ideas on doing this are appreciated (but only if you have the time)
 
    thanks again

Hi ulfr

Loading an extension does not mean it's running.
