    Before anyone asks: no 64-bit support. Business as usual for Adobe.

    That's very old pre-release. Nothing to do with 10.3 beta recently released.

    I know it's older than these betas, I was just pointing it out to the people above who seem unaware that there is a 64-bit player at all. It still reports as version 10.3.162.29, though it doesn't support vdpau.

    You just need to preload the v4l1compat lib, make a wrapper for your browser that contains

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so

    and your webcam should work just fine.

    Flash 10.3 Beta 2 is out. Nothing really new it seems besides some privacy stuff for Internet Explorer 8/9, yay. Of course no 64-bit support, what do you expect from Adobe anyway.

    You're asking too much of Adobe, 64-bit CPUs only appeared around 2003, so they had less than 10 years to get their act together.
