    Ok So after some digging, I found that one can indeed spoof the O/S and via a not particularly difficult process (This is for Mozilla browsers).

    So I spoofed my XP (Windows NT 5.1) O/S to be Windows 8.1 (Windows NT 6.3)

    1] Go to https://www.deviceinfo.me to see what your browser is displaying, This line is the key one: True Operating System Core: Windows NT 5.1 (32-bit) (or 64-bit).

    2] Back up your prefs.js file (This stores your about:config settings). You should find this here (This is an example your browser may be different):
    C:\Documents and Settings\XYZ\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\tn69ivdz.default.

    3] Go to about:config and search: general.oscpu.override
    If it exists you will edit the value, If it does not exist, create:
    right-click context menu: New -> String name: general.oscpu.override Value:
    Windows NT 10 (Windows 10)
    or
    Windows NT 6.3 (Windows 8.1)
    or
    Windows NT 6.1 (Windows 7)

    4] Open a tab and go to https://www.deviceinfo.me to check changes.

    To revert the changes,
    Go to about:config and search: general.oscpu.override right click and choose reset. Close browser and restart browser, Go to about:config and search: general.oscpu.override if not gone, close browser and overwrite prefs.js with your backup copy you did make a copy right?

    Unfortunately this did not change my bitchute video issue.

    Spoofing OS won't help - MyPal/Serpent 55 won't play bitchute videos on Windows 10 either, I just tested.

    Someone has found a workaround involving Ublock Origin:
    https://msfn.org/board/topic/182647-my-browser-builds-part-3/?do=findComment&comment=1208210

    Ublock Origin legacy for XP browsers:

    https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock-for-firefox-legacy

    I tested in MyPal 28.8.2., BitChute videos played fine.

    100% correct. They DON'T care. Emailing them is a waste of time, if you get a reply it will be a along the lines of "We don't support outdated OSes/browsers, please upgrade to a supported platform. Have a nice day."

    I don't know what Firefox f.i. is. on my Roytam1 Firefox Basilisk 52 build I see video/mp4. I also don't recognize your screen shot. what does f.i. stand for?

    Thanks for the info. When you say "I tested in MyPal 28.8.2., BitChute videos played fine" is this on an XP machine? Also what settings tweaks are you using in UBlock (I'm not seeing Bitchute Videos with it on MyPal 29.3 or Newmoon 28.10.)

    I revisited the MSFN article and put on my glasses (heh, heh). I have to admit I was still lost and started clicking kinda randomly, resetting, trying again.

    Somehow I got the partial uBlock workaround going but no comments or likes. or "more" button working on the page (yet?).

    So I still am interested on what you did. That said, here's a screen shot of my uBlock "My Filters":

    and my ublock "My Filters" list if someone wants to import it (attached)

    Hi again TomiB, I think uBlock is the direction we need to go in. ANOTHER work around I found is that if I left clicked on the blank page a context menu comes up and I can "copy video link" I pasted into the url bar and the video loaded. A little easier than my first workaround. The thing is I had to move the courser around to get the right context menu.

    Windows XP Pro SP3. No changes to any filter. All I did is disable inline scripts.

    Likes and comments are not working as stated in the msfn.org link I provided.

    There's still some videos that won't play, specifically those using AVC codec which MyPal doesn't support.

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/1YV8To3SOhjQ/

    (No video with supported format and MIME type found.) This video plays does play in Serpent 55 with UBO + inline scripts disabled.

    You downloaded the wrong file. The zip file is source code for compiling it yourself

    You need to download the xpi file.

    Then go to MyPal - Addons and select 'Install Add-on From File..' and choose the xpi file you just downloaded

    Hi ClippyBeer, thanks, got it in MyPal now, but how do I get the 6 lines images, 3rd-party, inline scripts, 1st.. etc. to show up above bitchute.com in the uBlock, to block inlinescripts. I only get the 3 domains show up, no lines above bitchute.com.

    Does it also work in Firefox or only in MyPal? Thanks for the help.

    Hi ClippyBeer, I turned on "My Filters" in the preferences and I added the lines below to "My Filter-List".
    But they do not show like in your screenshot (and bitchute videos do not work).
    Thanks for your help !

    no-csp-reports: * true
    no-large-media: behind-the-scene false
    behind-the-scene * * noop
    behind-the-scene * 1p-script noop
    behind-the-scene * 3p noop
    behind-the-scene * 3p-frame noop
    behind-the-scene * 3p-script noop
    behind-the-scene * image noop
    behind-the-scene * inline-script noop
    www.bitchute.com * inline-script block

    Hi ClippyBeer, as I wrote above, I can not get the "My Rules" in MyPal Browser to get applied to bitchute as you had your printscreen where it shows "inline scripts" etc. above bitchute.com in the UBlock window.

    I do have www.bitchute.com * inline-script block
    in My Filters and My Rules.

    Hi ClippyBeer,
    I tried the workaround and it works. Thanks.
    The comments don't show as you said but I can live without them.
    For some reason, I'm no longer getting alerts about replies to this thread.

    Hi Boris, thanks,
    bitchute videos do not play in my MyPal 29.3.0 (XP, SP3) probably because I do no know how to activate the "www.bitchute.com * inline-script block" in the MyFilters / MyRules of UBlock.
    Maybe somebody like ClippyBeer can give me a hint what to do so that it shows up in the UBlock with a red bar as in his screen shot above.
    I can not get the those lines (images, 3rd-party, inline scripts, 1st, 3rd, 3rd, activate and show up like this:

    Screenshot of ClippyBeer:
    b.png

    Of course I don't know whether that would solve my problem and let see bitchute videos directly, without the workaround of page-info and media, video play manually, that does work at least.

    Hi TomiB,

    I just followed the instructions in the msfn link that ClippyBeer provided and it worked for me.
    - I clicked the gear wheels on the right side of uBlock Origin while on a bitchute page that didn't show.
    - then clicked "I am an advanced user" (which I'm not lol)
    - went back to the same bitchute page and in uBlock clicked the far right red box on "inline scripts"
    - clicked "refresh" in uBlock
    - refreshed the bitchute page and the video showed up and played.
    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Boris
    I can't see/find the "gear wheels" on the right side of uBlock Origin !
    (I use UBlock 1.16.4.30)
    Is that the "Preferences" of UBlock or the preferences of MyPal?
    In UBlock I only have the "Open Dashboard" which you're not talking about.
    I'm in Switzerland so maybe some symbols are different or missing here and I would have to find that "gear wheels" in the menu above?
    Thanks for a hint Boris !
