Adobe Flash coming to an end for Linux
 
Can you believe this. I went to the adobe website to get the latest flash and they now have a notice posted

Quote:

NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.
I wonder if MS had any thing to do with this. Just gets me how great Linux is and places like adobe just don't want to deal with it. But yet all these companies will develop for mac os. Last I check if you develop for a mac your 3/4 of the way porting to linux.

So the option will be the chromium/chrome browsers...

Flash for Linux will still be available, but developed by Google. Unfortunately, they switched the plugin framework to the Pepper plugin API, which is currently not implemented in any other browser than Chrome/Chromium. The Mozilla developers decided not to implement that API, instead they come up with their own replacement for the Flash plugin (currently in development).

From the work I read about at Fubuntu and other places to get Netflix to work, one may soon be able to cheat the OS into thinking that it is a window system. Then the ability to run non-native new versions of flash.

Dumb Adobe! More dumb still is the people who haven't switched to HTML5. And that still needs work.

Even if people switch to HTML5 from now on there still will be a lot of content only available in Flash. Besides that, many people don't see the need to abandon Flash, since it still is supported on OS X and Windows.

HTML5 is much better.
But there's a way to code an 'youtube' in HTML5? with all the features?
I hope yes. hehe
Because about animations and in web 'programming and designer' HTML5 rules! And flash could disappear

Not if the "features" are ads and DRM.

Sadly, the point is not what the user needs. Sites like Youtube simply have to support ads, otherwise it will be difficult to pay for the large amount of traffic and servers needed.

To pay the traffic and to invest in Zinga game heheheh.

I uploaded a Stevie Ray Vaughan rare tribute in my utube account, and thousands views, i guess 3 thousand, in few days, soon you tube message me to 'monetize' the video, and I didn't i hate that ads and would ruin the video (i'm fan hehe), and so fast as hell youtube banned the video to german ips.

That's Business

They will have to add in drm or some type of encryption to HTML5 otherwise it will die. Last time I checked, many of the videos are in HTML5 on youtube.

sorry Alchemikos, could you run that by me again? youtube ASKED you whether you wish to make money off of your video???!!

.... and why specifically *german* IPs?

TobiSGD 01-20-2013 03:54 AM

In Germany we have this horrible institution, the GEMA. No one likes it, but tut they exist and they are the cause we don't have (legal) access to many Youtube videos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gesells...eos_in_Germany
