Another version of Exton|Defender fc19 with Flash, Vlc and multimedia codecs

Posted 07-26-2013 at 05:11 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version of Exton|Defender 64bit based on Fedora 19. I discovered yesterday (to my horror) that version 130721 (the first) had no support for Flash in Firefox, and that such assistance could not easily be installed. Fedora is restrictive with non-open source software. Flash is needed, for, among other things, if you want to use Youtube. In version 130726 I have also installed Vlc, version 2.0.7 and the necessary multimedia codecs. In order to do that, I have added extra software sources...

I've been a VLC media player user for a long time. But some funny thing happened when I upgraded my gentoo and VLC started lagging extremely hard. I tried everything: from downgrading codec libraries to removing ~/.vlc : nothing helped. The problem was when I was trying to watch DVDs and some avi files, it shown "buffering" on every frame, and, of course, I had a hang of few seconds every time.
