Software News   Software News : OWB 1.7 for MorphOS is out!
   posted by $adddam on 5-Mar-2010 13:50:19 (11508 reads)
Fabien 'Fab' Coeurjoly has released the latest version of his OWB port for MorphOS.
The short list of changes (for more see the readme!):



- Implemented HTML5 Media backend (<VIDEO> and <AUDIO>) through FFMpeg:
- Support for most common codecs: Ogg/Theora/Vorbis, MPEG4, H264, AAC, MP3, Wav, ...
- Builtin controls support.
- Sites like dailymotion/openvideo, youtube/html5 and vimeo work
- The whole media is stored in memory (sorry for this one, it will be handled in a more elegant way later).
- Added search engine configuration window.
- Implemented JavaScript window modes for popups (no toolbar, no status, window size, ...).
- Improved keyboard support
Added ctrl+wheel combination to zoom in/out.
- Added an option to make navigation toolbar frameless.
- Reworked navigation buttons: buttons now have hover and selection effects
- Added optional horizontal separators between navigation, quicklinks and address groups.
- Added status images for local/internet/secure/insecure areas.
- Added optional validation buttons for URL and search strings.
- In download manager, hilight tab title instead of switching page, when a new event occurs.
- Allow to restart a finished download too.
- Changed options regarding session restoration at startup (always/ask/never).
- and many, many more...

OWB 1.7 for MorphOS (full and no-svg) is available at the usual place:

I would like to know.... OWB is open source isn't it.....soooo..... are the MorphOS, AmigaOS4 and AROS ports entirely different code bases? Do they not need to share the code?

Or am I being naive?

@BigBentheAussie

The core (WebCore, JavaScriptCore and OWB API layer) is mostly the same for all OWB ports, but the modules below (event, memory, task, ...) and above (GUI, download manager, [whatever] manager) are totally different for each port.

For instance, here's how it can look like on MorphOS. Quite different from OWB OS4 or even OWB for AROS (even though it uses Zune). And that's just the GUI.

Great release. I'm amazed how well e.g. YouTube works:

Just go to http://www.youtube.com/html5 and join the HTML5 beta test and BANG! :)

Great work, Fab!

Well, assuming you have MUI4 installed, it should. I fear how slow it might run, though. :)

There is a flash plugin too, anyway (but it's not fast enough for youtube, except on mac mini).

Anyway, Fab is the man!

@Zylesea

Keep in mind it's using AHI exclusive unit. If you want several sounds at once, you'll have to use the device.audio mode (that redirects music unit to device unit).

No, I don't mean parallel sound instances. I can play only one video. Once that is finished, another video from tha same tab does replay mute. Seems like the player hasn't cleanly exited.

Edit: The taskmanager tells me that "[OWB] MediaPlayer Video" froze.

It exits cleanly, unless something died, of course.

[EDIT]
Ok, so it died. Bad luck i guess. :)

Rebooted to flush everything. Now, in a controlled testbed (only aw.net & youtube open ins one tab only) it does work as expected on first sight.
opened youtube, searched for Alan Ashita (to get ti know what Tokai is listening to). worked. Selected another vid from teh suggestion worked. After the 2nd vid was finished entered onother search string, and then no audio output worked.
Taskmanager doesn't report me a frozen task this time.
Finished OWB, the media player tasks get removed. OWB restarted, youtube vid works again...

For sure having firefox or any other fox on the morphos will no make sense anymore, because OWB are the modern and full of features browser. Sadly that OWB for aos4 are far-far away from morphos one. But anyway, very interesting news.
