10rc

Adobe Flash Player version 10rc (designated build 569) is live. Go get it. Items to observe about this build:

  • Camera input works a whole lot better (V4L1 and V4L2 cameras both work; V4L2 cameras don’t peg the CPU anymore)
  • Software fullscreen performance is vastly improved
  • Faster, more stable windowless mode (but be sure to use very recent browser builds)
  • SSL now handled through NSS instead of flashsupport-OpenSSL alliance
  • White speckles are gone from video playback
  • Important stability fixes (fewer crashes)
  • Still not 64-bit native, just to get that out of the way

We tested the new NSS stuff on various popular [32-bit] Linux distributions and found that all the necessary libraries are present. If the NSS and cURL libraries are not present (as described in the previous post), Flash Player will refuse to load.

    Thanks for fixing the speckled video. It was preventing me from using Flash 10 for daily testing.

  5. Patrizio says:

    “Still not” 64bit implies that there will be once one version of it…

  6. So could you give at least a date when we could get native 64 bit version? Even if it’s alpha… I would be glad to test alpha versions.

    Sorry to say that my webcam is not yet working.I’m using a Logitech quickcam zoom and when using the snowfall demo, the led in the webcam blinks twice, then powers off. The background remains blank. The same happens when I try to set the preferences for the camera (via right click->settings).Thanks for your time.BTW, the output of the program you posted is:./v4l2-formats /dev/video0/dev/video0 is a V4L2 device named ‘Logitech QuickCam Zoom’/dev/video0 is capable of video capture/dev/video0 is capable of streaming capture/dev/video0 supports ‘Raw Philips Webcam’ (compressed format, V4L2_PIX_FMT_PWC2)/dev/video0 supports ‘4:2:0, planar, Y-Cb-Cr’ (raw format, V4L2_PIX_FMT_YUV420)

  10. Guillaume Castel says:

    This release is incompatible with the Arch Linux version of curl (7.18.2), which happens to be the latest one. The flash plugin wants libcurl.so.3 instead of libcurl.so.4. Looks like it’s linked against an old version of curl. Nice, for a release candidate :-|Also, you can’t get the x86_64 issue out of the way; people will keep reminding you of it until either the arch or Flash itself becomes obsolete.x86_64 was announced in 2000, and the first CPU was released in 2003 for crying out loud. Any progress in sight before 2012? [ Make a symlink from .so.3 to .so.4. Should work. -Mike M. ]

  11. David R says:

    Hooray, those white speckles were really annoying. And hopefully the crashes were fixed, it was starting to get to the point where I’d just disable flash and only turn it on when I needed it, since random flash widgets would take out the whole browser.

  12. Venky says:

    Awesome! Thanks

  13. webjdm says:

    Hi,Indeed the flashplugin 10rc (build 569) requires libcurl.so.3. My system has curl version 7.18.2 with libcurl.so.4 (I don’t have libcurl.so.3… old ?). But a symlink can load the plugin!

  14. Thales says:

    Many problems here in Ubuntu 64bits. Since the repositories doesn’t have packages for lib32nspr4, lib32curl3, lib32nss3, and Flash for linux cannot use the 64bits version of those libs, to make it work, I had to download each one of this packages, extract and copy to /usr/lib32 folder as sudo.I know this sound crabby, but with a 64bits version of Flash Player this problem (and a lot others) is solved.Sorry for my english.

  15. Harald Hvaal says:

    My opera will now no longer recognize the flash plugin at all. I changed no paths, only replaced the previously working beta library file. Is there something I can do about it? I am running newest opera snapshot released from the desktop team blog. [ Make sure to have libnss and libcurl installed. -Mike M. ]

  16. J. Bond, esq. says:

    This release is still unusably slow compared to Flash 9.The trailer at:http://dragonage.bioware.com…is smooth with Flash 9, but a juddering slideshow with the newest Flash 10 (and the toolbar at the bottom is cut off, and there are weird glitches around the edges, and I can’t put it in fullscreen anymore).The Flash 10 beta 2 had similar performance issues. Given the overall work you’ve done on performance, there must be some particular glitch causing this, which should be fixable for the final release.I’ve got a Nvidia 9600GT using the latest closed-source drivers. KDE 3.5.9 with regular kwin. Debian lenny.I’m happy to help if you need more info.Thanks.[ The video performs just fine on my machine. However, I can confirm that the fullscreen button does not work. Thanks. -Mike M. ]

    Hello, I have 9.0.124.0 from the Ubuntu repos installed for all users, but I am testing Flash 10 betas and now RC under one user account, as I installed it into ~/.mozilla/plugins and it normally works, showing the 10 version in about:plugins in FF3, however, when I installed the RC, it shows up as 9.0 r124 in about:plugins, unlike the last beta which showed up as 10.I removed the beta installation in ~/.mozilla/plugins and the .xpi file in my user’s FF3 directory, but it’s not showing up as Flash 10, was something changed in the rc or have I failed to do something correctly?I’ve also had problems on YouTube, but most Windows/Mac users appear not to be affected, it’s when I try to move videos from Favorites to my Playlists, and it stops as a swirling icon with “Loading Playlists” as demonstrated here:Unable to Move Videos From Favorites to Playlistshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSmViMogUnYThe problem exists with version 9 and version 10 betas and Flash, I’m not sure if it’s a Linux Flash specific problem, or a YouTube problem. Attempts to contact YouTube so far for almost a month have not met with much success. A Mac user said he had the problem for awhile, but it was resolved for him.I’m still experiencing the issue. When this part of YouTube was HTML, it was fine, but when they switched to some type of Flash design for this section, it hangs. I’m addressing it here in case it may be related to the Linux plugin, if you, and others, could test that section of YouTube with the Linux Flash plugin, I would appreciate it.YouTube issue aside, I’ve experienced a great number of crashes with Flash 9 and 10 betas in FF2/FF3. Uninstalling pulseaudio entirely helped somewhat, but I’m still seeing them on a semi-regular basis. My users are complaining. Epiphany crashes so often with Flash 9/10 it’s unusable.Thanks for continuing work on Flash for Linux.

    Fedora 9 only provides libcurl.so.4 [ A symlink should serve as a good solution until we find a better, more transparent solution. -Mike M. ]

  19. Neil says:

  20. Anonymous says:

    On Fedora 8 there was no libcurl.so.3, only libcurl.so.4, so I made a softlink (ln -s) and forced the RPM to install (with the –nodeps switch), seems to work fine now.

  21. MrEcho says:

    Not sure if its the paths in Gentoo, but its not loading at all./usr/lib/libcurl.so.4.1.0/usr/lib/nss/*Might want to check all possible paths for the libs. With 64+32bit libs on the same computer, its even more fun.

  22. Peter says:

    Fedora 9 does not have libcurl.so.3So Flash 10 does not work on Fedora 9.

  23. Linux User says:

    “Still not 64-bit native, just to get that out of the way”So two years after your only real post on the topic….Care to explain why its still so difficult? [ That’s a lot of bits to manage. -Mike M. ]

  24. belegdol says:

    Looks like libcurl in Fedora 9 is too new: flash requires libcurl.so.3, and Fedora has libcurl.so.4.

  25. M. says:

    Seems really unstable for a release candidate. I was using the beta for a while with very few issues, but since installing the rc, my browser has crashed at least a half dozen times. :'(

  26. Yannick says:

    Seems to be faster and more stable for the most part, however, it still crashes on the BBC website.I’m running Ubuntu 8.04 with FF 3.0.1.

  27. Michael says:

    Your Curl depends on so.3. You’ve alienated the Fedora 7, 8, and 9 crowd. (so.4) :(Why are you building on such an old platform? Can you provide a build against the newer .so?I tried symlinking .so.3 to .so.4 for grins and I only get so far before the plugin crashed (for obvious reasons). The few seconds the plugin worked I was able to use my Quickcam 9000 Pro for the first time with full video and audio. Yay! Almost there.

  28. Kimble says:

    Where is the 64-bit support?! Hehe just kidding, nice to see that the Flashplayer for Linux is maturing! Good work!

  29. Amish says:

    I am not sure if this is related but the chat/messenger integrated with Yahoo Mail no longer works in version 10. It says Flash version 9 or higher required. Previous beta version didnt work too.However, http://web.im (Yahoo web messenger) worksIt used to work with Flash 9 version.Using Linux FC6 with FF 3.0.1May be its not able to fetch version properly from RC version?Thanks.

  30. per says:

    what dists was this tested on? I tested on openSUSE 11.0 (which must be one of the “various popular” ones) and flashplayer wants libcurl3 which is not available. libcurl4 is tho.

  31. Soap says:

    I wish you’d build against a more recent version of curl.

  32. sandog says:

    It doesn’t work on Fedora x86_64 despite having the i386 libs libcurl-7.18.2-1.fc9.i386, nss-3.12.0.3-0.9.1.fc9.i386, glibc-2.8-8.i686. So it seems its my fault again.

    Excellent work guys! :DLooking forward to AFP 10 final on Ubuntu Linux!!

  34. Dima says:

    I just tried it…Firefox freezes or crashes every time I try to switch to fullscreen mode on youtube.One good news, though: my webcam now works (at least, in the flash settings dialog). But it works only once – I get a black screen if I close the dialog and open it again. It works again if I restart the flash player.I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000; it uses uvcvideo, v4l2.[ Thanks for the camera report. We think we have a solution to that problem. -Mike M. ]

  36. Martin Lindhe says:

    Why is there still no plans for 64-bit Flash? The flash player is very instable in 64 bit linux and is the only major part of the OS not working properly in the 64-bit environment (i’m using Ubuntu 8.04, 64-bit)

  37. Arash says:

    So Cool…Just two little questions,I have the latest flashplayer 9 on my linux and it works a little buggy with pulseaudio, is there any improved pulseaudio support for flashplayer 10?and is there gonna be a 64bit flashplayer or I should wait for flashplayer 11?Thank you.This Flash/Flex/AIR thing is doing so good in linux.

  38. Will we get 64-bit for Adobe Flash Player 11 ?

  39. Oxydius says:

    Could you distribute 32-bit dependencies as static libs to avoid breaking Flash on 64-bit systems? I’ve previously had it working nicely with nspluginwrapper but these new library dependencies appear to be show stoppers.More specifically, I have /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4 and Flash 10rc is looking for /usr/lib32/libcurl.so.3.

  40. Argh!No 64-bit native, and now no 32-bit nspluginwrapper, neither 32-bit firefox on 64-bit platform anymore, as libflashplayer.so depends onlibcurl.so.3libssl3.solibnss3.solibnspr4.so, that can be found in packageslibcurl3libnspr4-devlibnss3-devHeh. These in turn depend onlibcomerr2libidn11libkrb53libldaplibnss3-1dlibsqlite3libssl0.9.8zlib1gthat in their turn depend ondebconflibgnutls13libkeyutils1libsasl2that in their turn depend ondebconf-i18nlibdb4.6libgcrypt11liblzo2-2libopencdk10libsasl2-moduleslibtasn1-2perl-basethat in their turn depend on other multitude of libraries I’ll not dig deeper because it became pretty obvious there are just too many of them, that it would be easier to run a 32-bit O.S., and having to install all the dependencies in a 64-bit O.S. would mean my ‘puter would spend some hundreds of MB just to load a cute Flash-based banner ad.If Flash 10 final has this little dependency problem, it will be simply a nightmarish task for Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, (*)Ubuntu and all other distos who offer a 64-bit version of their OSes, to package it.Man, you did it.It was a punch below the waistline.Mike, you can do better than this. There’s no need to worsen 64-bit users’ lives, even less this way. If before we could at least awkwardly use Flash content, rc1 just alienated us in such an absurd way I really struggle to understand why a developer would go such great lenghts to accomplish it. I’m not saying you did it on purpose, but you hit the mark nonetheless.Please take a moment to think about it, and I hope you’ll realize you can’t disregard so many people, at least not morally.I really hope you personally will work out this situation in a reasonable way.Best regards.

  41. I’m waiting for native x64 version of player – now I’m using 32 bit wrapper provided by Ubuntu.Keep up a GREAT work!

  42. oyvind says:

    Great, installed and currently testing on Ubuntu Hardy 32bit. Seems OK so far, will report any obvious crashers. Btw. is detection of hardware-acceleration-capable graphics cards/drivers fixed ? Or do you still do the “grep for ‘SGI’ in glx vendor”-test ?Thanks for your work on the Linux Flash plugin.

  43. Peter says:

    It seems the new flash version works much better. I’m using Ubuntu 8.04 64-Bit and full screen flash videos now work. Also my webcam works which didn’t with flash 9.But pleeeease give us a 64-Bit version! I’m now using the 32Bit flashplugin and it’s hard to install with Ubuntu 64Bit.

  44. Vladimir says:

    Just tried it and I’m pretty disappointed with it. (this is first flash 10 version I ever try, after reading posts about previous beta and its regular crashes I was too scared to install it)First, installing 32-bit curl and nss pull out quite an amount of packages.. For people with almost-pure 64-bit systems (i.e. 32 bit stuff only for flash 🙁 ) this is quite annoying. Second, rpm -U flashplayer10_install_linux_081108.i386.rpm said that I’m missing libcurl.so.3. The curl I installed, curl-7.18.2-1.fc8.i386 provides libcurl.so.4. Wtf? Of course my distro isn’t exactly 3 years old (so-called “stable”), but it isn’t bleeding age either. Still, that’s a fact: libcurl from Fedora 8 is way “too new”. Of course libcurl from Fedora 9 and from Fedora 10 Alpha is too new either. For the heck of it, even curl-7.16.4-1.fc7.i386.rpm in Fedora 7 is too new and won’t do for this flash – and Fedora 7 was released over year ago. I had to get curl.so.3 library from very old Fedora 6. Can you please stop using ancient versions of libraries when building flash player?Next, I installed it (with –nodeps), but it still doesn’t work. ldd /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so showed that dependencieslibssl.so.6 => not foundlibcrypto.so.6 => not foundare missing. Again, wtf? I thought that new flash player uses nss, not openssl? And flash 9 was perfectly fine without openssl either (I never had 32-bit openssl installed and it worked). If you need openssl anyway, then why are you using nss? And if you need openssl lib, can you PLEASE add it to rpm dependency? Because flash rpm installed perfectly fine without it. You’re going to confuse users a lot, since 32-bit openssl isn’t exactly obvious dependency.Now, it finally runs. I open a flash site in my firefox 3.0.1 browser, right-click on on flash to check out context menu, and.. both flash player menu and browser right-click menu open at the same time. Definitely a regression since flash 9. Besides, one can’t even close flash menu without clicking somewhere on flash (which is a banner, of course, and will redirect you to some advertisement site if you do so) or without choosing something in the menu. I usually pick something neutral like “zoom in”. Unless you do so, this menu will be present forever – no left/right/middle clicks in the other part of page help. I remember this bug to be present in flash 6 or 7, and now it strikes back?Honestly, I can’t really understand how you can call version with such major flaws a “release candidate”. IMHO rc version should be almost perfect and just be renamed into final if no more bugs are found. I can understand that hoping for 64-bit version of this rc was futile (let’s wait till flash 11.. oh.. I hope that gnash & swfdec would be able to replace adobe playber by that time), but come on, this isn’t rc, this is more like alpha ridden with bugs!

  48. Max says:

    Hej,I was very excited to read about 10rc1, particularly because of the alleged fullscreen mode optimizations. But my first tests showed that this new version is even worse than 9.0r115 I was running before. When I click on the fullscreen button in Youtube the browser (FF 3.0) just freezes. And the “Where I’ve been” application in Facebook shows ugly artifacts.I’ll stick with version 9 for now.Max

  49. swagger01 says:

    Stuff still not working in this release:- Full screen video is still slow but watchable now.- When you go to YouTube and click fullscreen then click to go back to your browser the sound still plays and you have to click a couple of times anywhere in your browser to get it to stop .. its like the video is playing off screen.- CPU usage is better when playing full screen video but its still no where near where it should be (comparable to the windows flash plugin)- Flash does not advise the GNOME Screensaver to halt activating while viewing full screen video.- When going to a webpage with a large flash presentation like http://www.adobe.com/ or http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/index.html Firefox slows to a crawl and CPU usage increases a lot making Firefox unusable.Yes I am using the Compiz window manager but I shouldn’t have to disable it just to view flash elements in a webpage .. also the majority of Linux users use the Compiz window manager and its included and activated by default in MANY Linux distributions .. Flash should work with established Linux technology and not penalize Linux users for using Compiz.Flash devs are you listening ??Back to Flash 10 Beta 1 for me as this release is no where near “release candidate” quality.

The audio keeps playing but the browser shows the last video frame before going to fullscreen.- Installing on a 64-bit machine was a lot of work because of the external dependencies.Good work.

  71. Jason says:

    The flash 10rc mostly works for me (firefox 3.0.1 kubuntu 7.04) but there are two errors currently.1) using the full screen button on utube hangs the browser. (works fine with flash 9)2) video playback is fine when firefox is just launched but after ff has been running for about 1/2 hour it slows down drastically. (plays for 3 seconds, hangs for 15-30seconds then plays another 3 seconds repeat…) Again no issues when using flash 9 (problem has been present for all of the 10 prereleases for me.)The good news is the wmode seems to work pretty well and apart from fullscreen and video I’ve not run into any issues with 10.

  72. Chad says:

    Update: Please disreguard my comments about the nvidia.com (and other sites) crashing on a Thinkpad T42p. This is the wmode crash, which is solved nicely by using the FF 3.1 alpha.

  80. J. Bond, esq. says:

    With reference to my original comment regarding performance at:http://dragonage.bioware.comI forgot to mention that I was using a pre-release build of Firefox 3.0.2. This version fixes the wmode crashes, but does experience horrible performance and visual glitches as I reported yesterday. (Non-wmode browsers work fine.)However, I also tried a Firefox nightly (one that will eventually become FF 3.1). It fixes the performance issues, and overall works just fine (except the fullscreen button as noted before). I’m guessing that that is what you’re testing with.So unless Flash 10 final is released after Firefox 3.1, you’re going to have a lot of people complaining about absolutely awful performance in Firefox. Sure, the wmode crashes will be fixed in 3.0.2 (whenever it’s released), but not the performance. I don’t know if Mozilla could be prompted to backport further fixes to 3.0.2, but you might want to take it up with them.Cheers.

  86. John says:

    I’m getting lots of graphical glitches on youtube and other video playing sites. The glitches are large black or white boxes blocking the content of the flash applications (one specific example is when I put my mouse over the big play icon in the middle of a youtube video a large white box covers the icon until I click it.) This wasn’t happening with the previous beta of Flash 10. I’m running Ubuntu 8.04 with an intel 945GM graphics card.

Why the hell Fedora is the only distro that actually uses nspluginwrapper for displaying plugins in 32 bits?

    QUOTE:[ About the screensaver thing: Same thing happens on Win/Mac. Flash’s cross-platform policy is to not mess with the screensaver. -Mike M. ]Yeah but when the screensaver is activated it closes the fullscreen video window (and the video still plays off screen somewhere) so as a workaround to the bug you need to tell the GNOME screensaver to stop activating while in full screen video.Honestly I nearly jumped out of my seat when I saw on phoronix that a RELEASE CANDIDATE of Flash 10 for linux was released .. and was disappointed with it … how can a “release candidate” be significantly more unstable than a 1st beta ??

  95. Gustaf says:

    I’m stunned by the priorities at Adobe.Flash IS NOT a video chat program, it’s a necessity to watch almost any video on the web, as well as to access a lot of sites. It has become a kind of de-facto alternative to plain HTML.Because of this plague/improvement on the web (you decide), the priority must of course be to be able to run it on practically any computer, JUST LIKE WITH THE REST OF THE WEB. Please read the history of the web and analyze why it got so wide-spread. It was because of open standards, and browsers for any operating system.So, the absolutely most reasonable thing would be to AT LEAST focus all work on making it run on 64-bit systems. Today it’s like only some of the people (say, Windows-users) can browse the web.But despite of this, version after version of Flash keeps getting more and more of the most unused garbage out there, with better and better support. For instance, webcam support (V4L2 or whatever).Let me just inform those here (as well as Adobe people), that Flash is a de-facto requirement for a lot of the web, and it DOES NOT NEED ANY WEBCAM FEATURES.With that, I mean that it does not NEED it. Could be cool, yes. Just like moving from OSS to ALSA, but seriously no one cares! No one, in comparison to the hordes of non-32-bit users.I just cannot believe what is going on at Adobe, and how you people prioritize. How can webcam support, which probably less than 0.01% of the users use (in Flash i.e.), be more important to fix, than making it run AT ALL on non-32-bit systems, which more like about 50% use. And no new computer is 32-bit, so the 64-bit user base is just growing and growing.Yet you prioritize “white speckles”, changing SSL library, moving from OSS to ALSA, implementing V4L2, etc etc.Something (or perhaps a lot of things) are just absolutely not working at Adobe.In my point of view, you have drastically failed.The worst thing is, that there are good and evil companies, to paint it in black and white.Some companies just don’t care about anything except money. Some companies actually tries to make things work, and open up stuff to adhere to public needs.Sun, IBM, Novell, and lately Intel, ATI/AMD, are just examples of companies that have opened up code and standards, and have cooperated with the “community”.Adobe is a very good example of a company that thinks Linux is not needed, and it would be easier just with Win and Mac. Because seriously, who expects Photoshop or any Flash editing software to ever become available in Linux? Or anything else?You add basic (non-functioning, unstable, limited support) Flash, just to be able to point at it when people wonders “if Flash is really working on all operating systems”.This is my perception, and I believe I share it with a lot of poeple. You just couldn’t care less.Please prove me wrong, in actions, not in words.Please.

  96. Richard Lloyd says:

    I suspect the reason an “old” curl library was linked against was because “Enterprise” distros like RHEL 5 are based on Fedora 6, which in turn used the .3 version and not the .4 one. I can see the annoyance on both sides of the issue, but Fedora etc. are not blameless here.When a shared library goes up a version, distros should supply a “compat-packagename” package that includes *all* old previous shared libraries of that package. They don’t though – some distros don’t bother with compat-* packages except for a few critical ones (e.g. glibc and the like) and other distros’ compat-* packages only usually include the last version.BTW, this is the first Flash (9 or 10 beta) on Linux that doesn’t crash all the time with Firefox 3, so finally some progress has been made. Like many others here, the lack of a 64-bit version is quite bewildering to me and shows one of the major disadvantages of closed source – if Adobe either don’t feel like doing a 64-bit version or don’t have the skill to do one, no-one else can take over and do it!

  97. swagger01 says:

    Well spoken Gustaf .. Adobe should work on getting the Flash Linux player stable and working well THEN concentrate on things like webcam support .. and yes your right Linux is just as important OS as Windows or OSX so its imperative that there is a good Flash player for it (if people can’t view Flash on a particular OS then the OS is largely useless)Also I turned off the Compiz window manager and Flash player still brought Firefox to its knees when viewing http://www.adobe.com the fullscreen bug is still present.

    You should start to realize that it is now about time to concede defeat (actually, that time came and passed long ago). At this point, lack of a 64bit plugin is inexcusable.

Gnash and Swfdec BOTH work in 64bit, and between the two of them, I have yet to find a flash animation/program/whatever that won’t work. And this is when compared with the *OFFICIAL* flash plugin that just DOESN’T WORK.Quite amazing that you people with all the specifications and design docs can’t make it work, but a bunch of hackers can.

Adobe people help yourself and us by using up to date Linux distro for development.And start using XRender extension or cairo library for 2D drawing because flash plugin can kill any recent multicore CPU during simple swf playback. Firefox3 uses cairo for drawing on all platforms so you have green light for using it.It is shame that big screen HIdef videos and 3D games are playing fluently with no CPU usage but tiny flash advert opened in 4 web browser tabs eats all CPU power.

    Trying to resize browser window where Flash content is resized dynamicaly to match window size causes all sorts of probs like misplaced symbols (it seems this only occured when the movie was not scaled up/down, it looked fine when the size of the movie was close to its original dimensions), various artifacts from the symbols all over the screen, sometimes parts of the actionscript wouldn’t work (most notably those triggered by buttons) … I was really awaiting this one, but the joy lasted what, 1 minute? 🙂 I mean guys, spending the whole summer on vacation and then rushing a release does no good! (j/k)Cheers!

    trying flashplayer 10 RC on linux mint 5, ubuntu 8.04 based.reading flash media is working fine in youtube and other sites. Full screen is also fine. Sound is good too.Webcam streaming to quick capture in youtube freezes the webcam. I tried both with Logitech quickcam fo notebooks pro (UVC) and the built-in HP webcam (UVC).The same happened with another site where you can broadcast webcam through flash..a few seconds of video streaming, then freeze. The streamed image is also quite pixelated.Before testing I turned off compiz, as the two beta versions of fp 10 froze screen, cursor and keyboard. Not sure if that is still the case with 10RC.

    My webcam (Live! Cam Optia) works without flashcam. However I can’t get it working with 640×480 resolution. Tried setMode but it keeps the resolution 320×240. The webcam works at 640×480 when using, for instance, gstreamer: gst-launch-0.10 v4l2src ! ffmpegcolorspace ! ximagesink

    where is any normal x64 version for Linux? We are live in 2008 year, not 1988! Now all CPU at the market x86_64 powered. Wake up adobe please! Why simple adobe flash player want so much CPU? You flash player now is most “voracious” app on my linux desktop. ;-(

    Tested the standalone release candidate on Ubuntu 8.04 CL (command line).To make the system as empty as possible, the only things i installed to make Flash 10 work under 8.04 is this:apt-get install xorg-xserver xinit metacity libcurl3 libnspr4-0d libnss3-1dThen place the flashplayer in your user dir, configure xorg (via xorg.conf) to the correct driver/resolution and add this .xinitrc to your user dir:—————#!/bin/bashmetacity &~/flashplayer file.swf—————Type xinit in the console and voila: a clean running flashplayer without any desktop environmentThere you go, a clean ubuntu/flash kiosk.BTW.: i use Metacity as lightweight GTK window manager. Without it, Flash 10 will refuse to go fullscreen (9r115 did this too, the last version not to this was 9r48).BTW.: This version is much, MUCH smoother and faster than 9r48, more than 10x the framerate in difficult movies (lots of transparancy, lots of MC’s).

    Flash player 10.0.12.10 works on Opera 9.51, Konqueror but not in Firefox 3.0.1 and Epiphany. The player area is blank and on right-click the message is ‘Movie not loaded’. What gives? This is in Ubuntu Hardy.

    Still youtube videos are very jerky with 10rc. No way near windows counterpart.

    To Alejandro Nova,I had manually installed firefox 3.03 and copied into directory/usr/lib/firefoxWhat I found out is that all the shared libraries it was complaining about were in that folder.So here is what you do to get rid of those annoying libnss3.so, etc not found messages;Use “sudo gedit” to type up a file “firefox3.conf” (could be any filename as long it has a .conf suffix) and save to directory/etc/ld.so.conf.d/ ==> (gutsy)# manual install firefox3 configuration/usr/lib/firefoxNow rebuild the cache: I would pipe it to “less” so that I can check that the “libnss3.so”, etc is present in the cache listing:sudo ldconfig -v | lessOnce ok, the nspluginwrapper install should work fine.

    Hi,WRT 64-bit flash support (which I’d love to see) I know one blocker is that you don’t have a 64bit JIT for ActionScript. I understand that Mozilla has began using the Adobe JIT (in some fashion) and has ported that to x86-64. What are the chances of a backport of that code (once it’s complete / ready for prime time) to Flash, and/or (a real pipe dream) sharing the JIT?Thanks,David

  131. Webcam worked fine in Flash 9, but doesn’t work at all with Flash 10.Logitech QuickCam Zoom.I’ve seen other comment to the same degree.Can we get this clarified please?
