    Default Flash Player 10 Beta Adds Linux Features

    Phoronix: Flash Player 10 Beta Adds Linux Features

    Last month the first beta for Adobe Flash Player 10 was released for not only Windows but also Mac OS X and Linux at the same time. This beta release added new 3D effects, advanced text layout, an enhanced drawing API, and visual performance improvements, to just name a few of the many changes...

    On the one side, it is great to see that Adobe is serious about Linux, on the other side... it's still closed source software and to be honest I only need Flash for YouTube/Google Video, which hopefully will be using some other solution in the long-term (HTML5 video function). swfdec-mozilla already mostly works for me.... I wish Stage6.com was still online.

    No 64 bit.. A few years ago.. ok, I could play along, but in an age where having 4 gb of ram is nothing out of the ordinary, I think their commitment to linux is not that great. Frankly, I'm dissapointed - yes, I'm running a 64 bit linux distro.

    Works much better now that the first beta. Fullscreen video is smooth now.

    Honestly now I couldn't care less about them releasing flash for 64bit; gnash is coming a long nicely, although the recent build appears to have broken youtube play back. I tend to ignore sites that just have a flash version though so the lack of flash doesn't bother me as it might for others.

    Have they implemented the "don't sometimes hang Firefox when I close a tab/window containing Flash" feature yet, or has that been pushed back to Flash Player 11?

    From the known issues:

    • For Linux, the hardware acceleration feature will not work if you are using a compositing window manager (compiz). In this case, Flash Player 10 Beta will always fall back to software. If you would like to test Flash Player 10 Beta on Linux, please disable your compositing window manager.

    Use nspluginwrapper, it works for all NPAPI plugins
