flash9 beta, youtube and opera-webbrowser smalltalk


Just installed flash9 yesterday. Finally video playback on you-tube like sites like throwawayyourtv.com xenutv.com, or other tv-rip sites works with proper sound/video synchronization.
Unfortunately, again I have trouble with opera. I love opera, but It always gives me a hard time with plugins (It sais in the release notes of the flash9-beta, it still doesn't work with opera, so this time it's probably not their fault).
It's a shame, I really love all the features like mouse-movements, content-blocker, zoom, ...
If it had a firefox-like search feature and proper plugin support on linux, I'd be all over it.

Bear in mind that I'm just a productive linux user. If it works with firefox I'm not going to tweak opera for an hour to get it to work. I'd rather wait for the stable release of the flash plugin.

And if I were you, I'd just rather get some plugins for Firefox that extend it to do all the stuff you'd do with Opera, rather than fight with O.

I wouldn't call it fighting. But I guess - taking the open-source argument into account, the firefox + loads of plugins to match the functionality of opera, is not a bad idea. I got some free time right now, let's try

arr... with the exeption of some minor annoyances, it kind-of works. mouse gestures seem a little bit less responsive. The zoom works great. The browse-image extention doesn't let me save the settings...
But there's some really cool stuff. The ad-blocker works great as well.
