Running PortableVLC-1.1.5_r3.0 on Mac OS X Mojave.
I've copied a DRM free DVD to a USB flash drive which I wish to play (by executing a script file) using Portable VLC located on the same flash drive.
The volume name of the flash drive is DSP-USB

The files on the flash drive are:
/DSP-DVD-Disc/VIDEO_TS (the DVD files)
/Portable VLC OS X 1.1.5 r3.0 (where Portable VLC is located)
/PlayDSP-USB-on-Mac.command (the script)

Using the script PlayDSP-USB-on-Mac.command:
#! /bin/sh
"/Volumes/DSP-USB/'Portable VLC OS X 1.1.5 r3.0/Portable VLC' 'dvd:///Volumes/DSP-USB/DSP-DVD-Disc/VIDEO_TS/'"

I receive the following error message:
SM-MEDIA02:~ pac$ /Volumes/DSP-USB/PlayDSP-USB-on-Mac. command ; exit;
/BuildRoot/Library/caches/ ssion-96.60.1/Common/ChunkCompression.cpp:49: Error: unsupported compressor 8

[0x100202158] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. 4
Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.

I'm a Windows guy and don't know much about the Mac environment when it come to trying to decipher the above errors and what the fix might be.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, but FreeSMUG builds get the source code unmodified form Chromium repository.

Many youtube videos can no longer be played.
youtube .com/html5 shows H.264 and MSE & H.264 are not supported.
Example video that an no longer play on Chromium: youtube .com/watch?v=N7NNh_Bykvg

Is not a mistake. As explained here since 70.0.3538.67 my Apple developer certificate is expired and sincerely I can't afford renew fee (99,00€) for just building Chromium.Check SHA1 from Sourceforge site, I can't give you more warranty, sorry.

Hi. I downloaded the Chromium_OSX_71.0.3578.98.dmg, and noticed that is not code signed:

$ codesign -dvvv /Volumes/Chromium\ OS\ X\ 71.0.3578.98/
/Volumes/Chromium OS X 71.0.3578.98/ code object is not signed at all

I double checked an an older .dmg, and confirmed the old version was signed:

$ codesign -dvvv /Volumes/Chromium\ OS\ X\ 66.0.3359.139/

Is this a mistake or are Chromium builds no longer code signed? Thanks.

I have 71.0.3578.80 installed on OSX 10.11. and it works now! Thank you very much!

I'm writing just now using Chromium beta 71.0.3578.75 build using XCode 8.3.3 running in a OS X 10.11 virtual machine.
Please wait for the next stable release. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks. Unfortunately the problem persists. 70.0.3538.102 and 70.0.3538.110 can't be startet
on 10.11. I know 10.11 is legacy since Sept respectivly 10.14 now, but having a recent browser can help
to extend the time window for migration (upgrading the OS every year is not user friendly / small office
friendly but that is an another story).

$ open /Users/test/Desktop/ ; exit;

dlopen /Users/test/Desktop/ Framework.framework/Chromium Framework: 
dlopen(/Users/test/Desktop/ Framework.framework/Chromium Framework, 261):

Seems to be the kSecAttrKeyTypeECSECPrimeRandom instead of kSecAttrKeyTypeEC problem as mentioned in the bug report "bugs chromium org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=841769" . Thank you!

I am willing to support a new developer certificate!! Just put the fundraising campaign and spread the word!

Solution maybe here:

A new build 70.0.3538.110 is available. Please can you check this new one and report if it works. Thanks.

My Apple developer certificate is expired and sincerely I can't afford renew fee (99,00€) for just building Chromium. I don't know if a fundraising campaign could have success.
Check SHA1 from Sourceforge site, now I can't give you more warranty, sorry.

Re: Unsigned build by CGandCGand, 19 Oct 2018 15:45

Received the unsigned warning on launch. Have rolled back to 69.0.3497.100 for now.

This is absolutely destroying my CPU. Tabs constantly maxing out 100% while just sitting in the background. Only Adblock and FreeSMUG Chromium updater extension loaded.
Reverting to v66.

in discussion FreeSMUG café / Guest Book » hello all

I have just created a new username with a new email address and it seems to work. Past experience has shown that once I leave this session I will never, ever, be able to logon again. So, this is my only attempt to ask a question. My next attempt will fail because I can't logon.
My inability to logon is long standing, going back for a couple of years or so. There is no way that I know of to ask a question unless I am logged on, and there is no way to logon. Catch-22.
Since I am unable to logon I don't believe that there is any way that I can verify any answer directly, and I can't respond to give any more needed information. I am stuck.

I've answered to a similar topic few weeks ago here:

As you are interested to save your preferences, if you like to automate it, you can have a look to the shell scripts source code here:

All scripts need to be updated with last macOS versions.

Hello, I've known FreeSmug for a while now and I really enjoy the concept of portable applications for OSX.
Sadly, the apps today are usually very buggy, slow, outdated, and some are still PowerPC apps. This is a dud, since Intel is much more used nowadays.

Is there any tutorial on how to package any open source application to a portable app on FreeSMUG? It would be much more convenient for me to make all my favorite apps portable, with my custom preferences, that I can use on any Mac with my USB. I would LOVE that!!!
