Browser Support

Post by userken » Wed Mar 08, 2017 12:44 pm

Having Firefox update to FF52 today which no longer supports npapi plugins so the VLC web plugin no longer works. (joining Chrome)
Is there a plan for ppapi support or other methods to allow the playback of the stream from the box in a browser.
I have installed Firefox 52 ESR (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/o ... tions/all/) on my windows 7 box to allow plugins to work but this is a limited time solution.

Thanks for the ESR tip

Yes Firefox have stated that they will remove support for NPAPI -
https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases ... n-firefox/

For now Safari and IE are the last browsers to continue and support NPAPI

We have developed a dedicated VBox live TV app for Windows 10 - the app is still in beta and available for download from the Windows store
Alternatively we recommend using Kodi

Hi the Windows 10 app downloaded from the Store does not accept dynamic dns addresses but only static IPs.
Please open a little bit your mind when you start to develop something. :)
Another question, is it possible to have Windows installation file, something like a .exe file to launch because not all users uses a MS account to access their machine (local user account) and for those Windows store is not accessible :)
Please open a little bit your mind when you think to distribute your hard and excellent work. :)
Italy loves you
Best Regards :)

Hi @bloodroses
Thank you for this feedback
1. Remote access - you can write your external IP address and port at the bottom of the select your VBox page
2. If you are using a standalone PC without access to the Windows store I can recommend using Kodi or VLC

We love Italy an thanks again for your inputs

Thank you for the answer. 😁
Regarding point 2, am I able to record programs to USB connected disks using Kodi or vlc? That's the reason I think I have to use your app.
I love Israel too, I will go to Tel Aviv this summer.😂

hi
... am I able to record programs to USB connected disks using Kodi or vlc?
For Kodi yes, it's a very good media center program and for me it's the best solution to use the vbox https://www.vboxcomm.com/how-to-setup-v ... ypton.html
For vlc I'm not sure. You can watch TV and record the live channel stream locally on your computer. To program something you should use Kodi or the vbox apps.
