Fixed a bug where typing / in the URL bar was activating search.

Still not possible to log in into Porteus forum :(

Do you know if the maintainers of midori plan on expanding its javascript capabilities?
I presume that is one huge issue with web sites being broken when it comes to midori…
Cheers!

Midori has nothing to do with that. It relies 100% on Webkit engine.

Can you give me some examples?

When I recall correctly, midori is unable to play any youtube videos because of lack of complete JS…
Many (maybe even all?) other video hosting sites also not work because of that.

Or has that changed and the above midori version can play yt videos?

I tried it with a version maybe 6 months old and it did not work.
So, I try it again…
System 5.0rc3 x86-64, XFCE 4.12, midori module from above:
Image
Looks like it's not working out of the box.
And its out of the box settings seem to have JS enabled already:
Image

Tried vimeo as well, took me a while to finally find a rated video cause all I found previously I would have to log in due to them being not rated yet (I was not looking for "sexy" on vimeo, I used one of the 3 featured channels vimeo itself promotes and finally the 2nd or 3rd video of that channel was rated) - still not able to watch it:
Image
(the above URL should have let me watch the free preview video)
Is this enough proof for you that video hosting sites are not working?

Added in 10 minutes 39 seconds:
And as contrast, here the above youtube The Tyger / Tangerine Dream video playing via Palemoon recent (29.4.4) just fine:

Hi fulalas,
i tried midori 9.0.
There is something very strange.
Youtube can not be accessed, I have tried it several times.
Always error message:

"Oops - https://www.youtube.com/
Something went wrong with 'https://www.youtube.com/'.

Try Again"

This is completely incomprehensible to me.
Other websites can be accessed and videos are played

Also other websites with videos
Same error:

"Oops - https://yandex.com/video/search?text=video
Something went wrong with 'https://yandex.com/video/search?text=video'.

Try Again"

Note: I use Porteus 5.0 Xfce

The JS implementation of Midori is incomplete, I presume that is the reason since most video hosting sites rely heavily on JS.

Have you ever tried invidio.xamh.de e.g. https://invidio.xamh.de/search?q=loriot
They mirror yt content but also host own stuff, and usually video work even when you have JS disabled, heck, even downloads work without JS.
So my best guess is for getting videos to play using midori - go to be https://invidio.xamh.de :)
Cheers!

This might be due to Digital Rights Management crap and other things going on. Sorry about my language but it had to be said, I don't support pay-for-view and pay-for-hear these days with the price of CD's and especially vinyl, 15 years back could buy an album on CD (sometimes 2CD set) for a bit less than 20USD, cannot any longer. And some vinyl titles prices, just LOL. I don't want to know about Blue-Ray or any other hard-video format.

I made the mistake of creating an account with one of the video-sharing sites without being able, or having enough patience, to create my own video. Only that for making comments about others' videos is quite sad but the sp____rs and tr___s have to be blocked out. I visit Youtube pretty much only to watch past sport events like baseball World Series and FIFA World Cup. It was a real drag checking out some electronic music I wished to have on CD from the mid 1990's but not any longer.

I use Brave for browsing Youtube and other such fussy sites but I dislike it, I don't want to go into detail about it. :oops:

Guys, Midori is just a shell for WebKit, which is the one that actually renders websites. This issue on video websites was happening because I was stupid and forgot to include gst-plugins-bad-free package :D

Re-uploaded, same link.

EDIT: not sure why but loading YouTube in Midori sometimes freezes my whole machine :-O Gonna try to rebuild webkit, oh gosh...

I renamed it into 005-midori-9.0-webkit2gtk-2.35.1-x86_64-1+gst-plugins-bad-free.xzm (005- is the prefix I use for all my browsers, be the PM, FFx, Midori or Chromium Without Gøøgle) and hope my md5sum is correct?

Hopefully you, fulalas, can make sense of that behaviour and of the warning / critical messages?

Added in 2 minutes 37 seconds:
UPDATE
After I loaded one random clip into a new tab that tap keeps displaying its Ooops only and the main page still being on https://www.youtube.com/ also now again only shows its Oooops.

When its displaying the yt stuff seemingly normal and switching to its Oooops state midori displays nothing new on the terminal.
Maybe the Oooops is intentional code made by gøøgle?

Seems at least on yt and running standard 5.0 porteus midori is still broken?
Cheers!

So all is well, you can play YT videos if you are able to go to invidio.xamh.de instead.
And if for some strange reasons you are unable (more like unwilling) to go there, well, then no YT videos for you via midori. Your choice.

Added in 16 minutes 49 seconds:
While midori plays YT videos just fine via invidio.xamh.de the download is disabled for reasons I cannot say (maybe it's a copyyright thingy on that specific video?)
