Is there a fix? Twitter, Pure browser - bad quality audio


#1

Youtube works fine in Pure browser
But videos or other audio media embedded in twitter have vary bad quality[can’t actually understand what is being said]
Is there a fix for this?
Cheers

I have never used or looked at anything in Twitter, so I am not sure the following will work. But, to check if it is not a more basic problem by comparison, you might want to try this tip on the PureOS wiki for watching videos using something in Twitter. It could help narrow down where the issue is.

Thank you for reply
it seems not possible to download the addon - the button says firefox only and takes me to a page to download firefox

In general, you do not need the add-on unless you want to open the video from the browser, though you may need it for Twitter. You might be able to just copy-and-paste the location into the player. I have not installed that “Open with” add-on, and that is the way I do use Gnome MPV. (I am not a heavy video viewer.)

It is a bit off-topic, but you can get around that “Firefox only” problem by using the browser’s Extensions panel for getting the add-on as described here.

Hey there, @sherab_kelsang :slight_smile:
For a few weeks now I had planned to write a little guide on installing brave browser, now you finally made me do it, because that solves that problem :slight_smile:

That’s great @Wayne
I’ll have a look.
TBH I am not a great video watcher as well but sometimes in twitter there might be some short videos that are of interest.
Any how Thank you !

Thanks for that @Caliga
The fact that some websites - gmail and hotmail, seem to be forced into an old UX makes me really enjoy Pure Browser and therefore i’d like first to exhaust all possibilities with it.
I use to work with Brave and also quite enjoyed it. I also liked the micropayment system they have.
i might return to it if no luck with Twitter Video

Thanks
