Phoronix: Adobe Flash 11.2 Beta Brings New Linux Work
Adobe Flash Player 11 was officially released at the beginning of the month after being in public beta for a while. This afternoon Adobe has now put out a beta for Flash Player 11.2. The main Linux feature is multi-threaded video decoding support...
I extracted libflashplayer.so to my plugins directory fired up a youtube video and watched all the pretty dots.
Went back to version 11.
Maybe you need to extract the usr files but I don't feel comfortable letting third party software modify that folder. Plus version 11 works without that extra junk.
Wow, I really think the performance of Adobe Flash has gotten better on all platforms. While I know HTML5 had to do with most of the improvements to Flash, I really do think Android has helped to get Adobe Flash in to shape (since it's mainly a platform for mobile devices)!
What bothers me most with Adobe Flash Player for linux is that there are several bugs in it that were here for ages (several years) despite being long ago reported to Adobe bug tracker. Most notable are: black color is used as the overlay key when utilizing accelerated rendering under linux (results in flash contents showing through any other app having some parts of gui colored black); overlay remains enabled even after termination of all Flash Player processes - one would have to reboot the system in order to restore black color displaying back to the normal state; playing video inside Flash Player with VDPAU acceleration enabled tends to totally hang the system when used extensively; full screen video playback is totally broken on multi-monitor systems having Xinerama and/or TwinView enabled.
