flashplayer amd64 Debian squeeze

I switched to the official Debian contrib package that directly downloads the, now again available, 64bit flashplayer plugin.
Code:
flashplugin-nonfree 1:2.8.2
youtube works. imdb doesn't, but at least it doesn't freeze the browser/system any more.

Subscribe to http://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer! Flash sucks and I bet it will cause problems soon again.

Do a
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure flashplugin-nonfree
or a
Code:
sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
to force an update.

Old entry:
Updating the debian-multimedia.org flashplayer-mozilla from 2:10.1.82.76-0.0 to version 2:10.1.102.64-0.1 (or 2:10.1.85.3-0.3) first didn't work, because the plugin wasn't found any more (although /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so) was there.

Fixed by forcing an update
Code:
[INSTALL, DEPENDENCIES] lib32bz2-1.0
[INSTALL, DEPENDENCIES] lib32v4l-0
[UPGRADE] ia32-libs 20090808 -> 20101012
[UPGRADE] ia32-libs-gtk 20090804 -> 20100914
EDIT: After downgrading/removing these packages it still works. No idea.

EDIT2: imdb videos make the browser freeze (at least for some seconds, one time I even had to restart X)
