Yet another troublesome site

Lewis Rosenthal
Can someone confirm (or deny) the following for me, please:

http://tvthemes.forthephone.com/category.aspx?catid=78

I get the page to load up (big page; should be split, IMO). however,
clicking on one of the icons opens the related link, but results in a
multimedia error message:

Unable to load the multimedia data. Instance inactive.
(system return code=0x13AA)

Reloading the page crashes SeaMonkey with:

11-02-2005  10:57:39  SYS3175  PID 007f  TID 0001  Slot 00d1

   Mozilla v1.7.12.
   I tried "77 Sunset Strip" and got an error box saying "Unable to load
the multimedia data. Unsupported bits per sample. (system return
code=0x140B)".
   No crash.

Using Peter's Mozilla 1.7.12 I get no crash after clicking on "20-20
Sunday", but the page did not fully load.  I waited for a couple of
minutes (on 56kbaud dialup) for more packets, then gave up with Mozilla
still expecting the rest of the page.

That's not a Mozilla message. Where does it appear? What plugins are you
using?

That's not a Mozilla DLL?! (At least not in any builds I have seen?!)

We're comparing apples and oranges, but it may give you a place to look:
  DeerPark WPS <Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.8b4)
Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0+> loads the main page fairly fast
(considering it's length and the indecent number of graphics), and the 5
links I tried loaded instantly.

I believe it's from the old Netscape PluginPak, npos2aud.dll

Was that part of Flash 5?  I forget...

That and the other system return number mentioned are OS/2 multimedia
error numbers (5xxx in decimal) and those are the corresponding messages.

Nope, you're right. That's part of the MMOS2 subsystem. Mine,
specifically, is bldlevel 14.056.

Plugins:

Shockwave Flash

     File name: npswf2.dll
     Shockwave Flash 7.0 r14

Mozilla Default Plug-in

     File name: npnulos2.dll
     Default Plug-in file

WarpVision

     File name: npwv.dll
     WarpVision streaming plugin, http://os2.kiev.ua/en/wv.php

Feature Install Plugin

     NPFI.DLL

Proxy Plugin

     File name: NPPROXY.DLL
     Proxy Plugin DLL

OS/2 Multimedia Audio PlugIns

     File name: NPOS2AUD.DLL

OS/2 Multimedia MIDI PlugIns

     File name: NPOS2MID.DLL

OS/2 Multimedia Video PlugIns

     File name: NPOS2VID.DLL

The Digital Sound & Music Interface for OS/2 Plug-in

     File name: npdsmi.dll
     NPDSMI.DLL

My wife says that the site didn't crash for her, but I haven't been able
to discern whether she was able to play any files.

To be clear, the individual links did not crash upon initial load.
However, after clicking OK on the MMOS2 error box and subsequently
reloading the page, I got the crash.

These cannot work, you should probably remove them.

Follow-up # 2:

I just tried this on my wife's machine, running Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U;
Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.8a5) Gecko/20041029 MultiZilla/1.6.4.0b.

She gets a different MMOS2 error, "Unsupported bits per second."
Reloading the sample page (again, under the main one, not the main page
in the link I posted) does not crash Mozilla, it merely (as expected)
brings up the same MMOS2 error.

Had a look at this with Moz 1.7.12 and the sample pages never fully load.

Had a look at the sample page source and the webpage is trying to start
Windows Media Player, I think - which could be the cause of the above
error unless you have wmp running under Odin?

Regards

Pete

I got no error message at all (Firefox v1.07); everything seemed to go
smoothly until I clicked on a "Listen" link, which produced a notice
that the needed (but unnamed) plugin was not available.

Thanks, Pete. No, I don't have WMP running at all. I would have thought
that WarpVision would handle the file (which is a wav, after all - at
least from the source I read), but this appears to not be the case.

Very strange.

At least it didn't crash upon reloading the page. This is a strange one,
huh?

Re: Yet another troublesome site

In reply to this post by Lewis Rosenthal
(I don't see this message in my list, so I've re-sent.)

As a follow-up:

Here's a link pulled from the source of one of the pages on the site in
question:

http://tvthemes.forthephone.com/rscs/sounds/2346_sample.wav

This should be a simple wav, yet for some reason, it gives the MMOS2
subsystem a fit. Opening this URI in a window by itself loads up the
file with the usual media progress page, but results in the
aforementioned MMOS2 error message.

BTW, FF 1.0.7 does not crash, even when reloading the pages on the site
(and I have the exact same plugins in my FF plugins directory as in my
SeaMonkey directory).

wav files will be handled by the npos2aud plugin if you have it
installed.  That means MMOS2 has to be able to play it.  If you haven't
already, you could try playing the file with WarpVision directly (video2
<url>).  If that works, you might want to remove npos2aud.dll from your
plugins directory.

WMP 9.0 under W2K played the downloaded file. Other wavs play just fine
on my OS/2 machine.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Most things seem to struggle with IMA ADPCM audio files. There's a codec
for it in MMOS2 but it doesn't seem to work for some reason.
If you really want to listen to it, decode it using sox:
  sox infile.wav -s outfile.wav
which will turn it into a normal uncompressed PCM file.

The audio quality is crap by the way - distorted beyond belief due to
too high recording level, and it's less than 4kHz bandwidth due to using
8000 samples/sec.

Thanks, Paul. Yes, it surely sounded lousy under W2K, but I wasn't sure
how much was due to the piping through my Citrix session. This was more
of a curiosity for me, as to what was choking SeaMonkey than a "must
have it" situation. I'm probably more concerned about the crash I
experience when attempting to reload the page; an MMOS2 error shouldn't
bring down the browser.

No maintenance for 10 years or so, perhaps. ;-)

FWIW, those running ffmpg can do the same with

 ffmpeg -i 2328_sample.wav tmp.wav

which defaults to encode with

 Stream #0.0: Audio: pcm_s16le, 8000 Hz, mono, 128 kb/s

This can be played the eCS-OS/2 built-in codecs, but not warpvision.
Warpvision needs

  ffmpeg -i 2328_sample.wav -acodec mp3 tmp.wav

to get sound.

However, an even easier solution is to use Paul's latest ffplay port which
plays the unsullied original.

Isn't that a reasonable bandwidth for a phone speaker?

Steven
