Electron Browser outdated?
I am using this page at night including a module (MMM-SmartWebDisplay from @AgP42) which used to show a livestream from the ISS until the ISS camera payload unfortunately reached its end of live a few weeks ago:
Now I noticed a message in the bottom corner of the livestream, claiming that the browser is outdated.
The link redirects to this website: https://support.video.ibm.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000403129-Supported-Browsers-for-IBM-Watson-Media
I am using MagicMirror² v2.8.0, Node v11.6.0 and npm 6.9.0.
How do I update the electron browser accordingly?
Thanks for your support!
MagicMirror 2.8.0 is using Electron 3.0.13, and the latest version is 6.09 (4, 5 and 6 were all released since march of this year)…
I don’t know Mitch’s plans for version updates… you might open an issue in the MagicMirror github repo.
Would be interesting to see what happens if electron 6 gets installed.
Anybody here ready to give it a try and crash his mirror?
The same happens on my MMM-ISS-Live module. However, in my case, I simply “X” out the message and the module continues to work properly. Yes, you need to be able to click.
Odd, I just quit MM and relaunched and the message did NOT appear this time. Hmmm.
I downloaded a fresh MagicMirror copy, and changed the electron version to “latest”, in package.json
And then did npm install
Default config runs fine
Will try some other modules
Pir, hotword, assistantmk2.
Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, Intel, electron v6.0.10, ok node 8.10.0 npm 6.11.3 Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, odroid, electron v6.0.10, ok node 8.10.0 npm 6.10.2 MMM-PIR-Sensor fails, access denied, exportGPIO, /sys/class/gpio/export MMM-Hotword, V2, ok. MMM_AssistantMk2, ok Raspian stretch 9.4, pi V3, electron v6.0.10, ok node 10.6.0 npm, 6.11.3
so far, testing looks good… not on pi yet tho
@sdetweil pi 3 looks good.
Thanks @sdetweil - changing the electron to latest works fine for me on a Mac Mini. I tested all my modules and did not find glitch so far.
@MichMich: Is there a special reading why you stick to version 3.0.13?
@rudibarani cool. can u post the node and npm versions? thanks
@sdetweil: I only updated electron without changing npm and node - so I am still using Node v11.6.0 and npm 6.9.0 on my Mac Mini (24/7 since 2009 )
