8036RE: [OT[ TenFourFox browser
- Oct 24, 2013
Your email said you had gotten an email from Yahoo saying I had posted three links. I haven't gotten these, maybe because I post most of the links, or Yahoo's new and improved groups and email now includes this addition. IAC the third link would have been to Perian, a prefpane that lets you play a large number of video formats with Quicktime. MacTubes uses this to play e.g. Youtube videos in Quicktime, resulting in a much smoother video stream. To use MacTubes, just enter search terms for Youtube in the entry field at the top right. Or if you already have a URL, press command-O in MacTubes to get an entry field for that. Nice stuff, and all of this is free.

No more dial up type waits or blank pages orbroken video. (v. 17.0.9 did not work, BTW, v.24 is thelatest and so far flawless.)Glad to hear it. I'm on v. 17 myself -- runs fine. I imagine 24 is faster.I've been having the same issues lately with my PB G4 OS10.4.11. Glad to hear it isn't just me! Thank you for theinfo, but what is the "third link" beyond "TenFourFox" and"MacTubes?"Not sure what you mean. What's the name of the third link?John
