    I have in my machine a Radeon HD 5450 which Wayfarer cannot use for displaying video streams. The reason for it has been discussed earlier and no more about that...

    But would it be possible at least to save (to clipboard or to a file) the direct stream links which Wayfarer is anyway able to dig up, so that they could be then run in Mplayer or VLC? That would be great...!

    Most of the websites do not offer direct links at all though. Or offer links to chunks which you’d have to save and mux together to get a playable file. It’s quite a bit of work to save a stream when you are only given data blobs to play.

    I have something like this on my todo but no ETA yet.

    I'd like to program electron or similar technologies for morphos wrapped html5 applications with morphos ui, well I don't know how to get to something like webview. Advise me?

    I guess that could be done if I released all of the link libs. I’ll have to think about this.

    I have found an interesting problem with hard disk cache, with the files inside the Curl, they can crash the hard disk clusters, and they are impossible delete from hard disk, although the worst is use the PFSDoctor program.... Now Wayfarer has a partition in exclusive for it.

    I know Wayfarer has a "Save As" option for many downloads, but these downloads are downloaded/cached to the default folder that Wayfarer has set to store those files to and the files as they are downloaded are seemingly spooled/pieced/concatenated to the folder they are intended to be saved to.

    So, you can end up with the HDD that Wayfarer is on getting filled up while the files download/transfer to the "Save As" destination folder/partition, which has on occasion caused my HDD, which is where Wayfarer usually runs from, becoming full and the download(s) stalls. Whereas the folder/HDD/partition the file(s) were requested to have them saved to has plenty of storage space remaining, but cannot accept the data as the data has stalled due to the folder Wayfarer stores the downloads on becoming full.

    Is there a way to get the files to download - directly to where you want to save them to, rather than this indirect "Save As" method which can cause these issues? :-?

    You probably turned off or rebooted your system while Wayfarer was still writing. The shut down indicator window may be closed, but the file system is still writing data to disk. Use the HDD indicator light before shutting down the system.

    Even if the common sense is that you could turn off Amigas at any time, is simply wrong. Amigas and therefor MorphOS have no virtual memory and so far less HDD activity, but when there is a write, then there is a write you should not interrupt.

    Cache files are normal files and have nothing to do with file system failures of any kind. Wayfarer is just writing a lot of data during operation.

    Wayfarer doesn't write anything in a different way than other apps. It does write a LOT though (mainly not cache, but SQL files). And yes, if you reboot/crash during write, some file systems may eventually fail. Welcome to Amiga.

    You can change the default download folder to point somewhere else (different drive). By the time you've selected a download location, WebKit has already downloaded a chunk of the file and needs to be able to write it somewhere, therefore it writes to a temporary file. In Odyssey, if you take too long picking the 'save as' location, the download will simply fail/time out.

    This is why I softlink all my cache directories to ram disk, also with Wayfarer. Then it will be fast (no slowdown from hd access) and safe (no corrupted filesystems).

    And if I want to have something saved then I use ENVARC/ENV for the cache directory... program's dir points to ENV, but I can save certain states of the cache (with cookies or similar) to ENVARC when I want.

    Wayfarer 2.8 is now available

    - Altivec code paths for a lot of WebAudio routines, optimized sin/cos computations in StereoPanner
    - Fast code paths for feColorMatrix (approximately 6 times faster than WebCore code)
    - Recompiled to fix a bug with longcalls in GCC, which caused it to miscompile the code in some cases leading to crashes
    - Improved the ContentDisposition header parser in WebKit
    - Detects expired certificates in the certificate viewer
    - Added a way to delete saved self-signed certificates, disabled the ability to 'trust' invalid/expired (not self signed) certificates
    - Fixed a regression in HTTP AUTH handling that caused downloads from password protected pages to fail

    The ContentDisposition fix addresses the download issue you've reported, by the way.

    Forgot to mention this in the changelog, but this build is also linked against a new, faster libm (library with various mathematical functions). It's been ported from Apple's PowerPC optimized sources by Piru and I.

    Thanks for 2.8, I do believe it is faster than 2.7!

    I rarely use Word Office (Online) but I got directed by a contact I trust to a hosted version of Word Online to download/view a document, which it directed me to, but then when I chose to save it as a PDF I got the "download" button which I clicked on, but I didn't even get a redirected tab, but with the Open Office document I got the "download" button which I clicked on, then I saw that a redirect tab opened but it didn't do anything, but if I chose to save it as a Word Doc, then it saved the file.

    Has anyone else used Word Office Online and encountered these issues? :-?

    On the Formula 1 motor racing website at the bottom of the page you would normally see logos of the F1 "Our Partners" but with v2.8 only the text for these sponsors/partners is visible as a text/tabled block as though the images are not being interpreted/rendered correctly - anyone else noticed this issue? :-?
