Flash player


I am trying to use this web site:

www.beatport.com

That site used to work with Linux, but now they have made changes and it seems I need a later version of Flash player.

However, I can only get Flash version 7 for Linux from Adobe.

Macromedia used to keep Flash players for Linux fairly up to date. Why is it that Adobe are not recognising us Linux users?

It seems Adobe are defeating the purpose and eventually web developers will steer clear of Flash due to the platform incompatibility issues that Adobe are introducing by not keeping players up to date for the three major platforms.


Does anyone know if Flash 7 is all that different from Flash 8? perhaps there is a way to make the browser report a later version of Flash player than it physically is?

Regards,
Greenie

Actually there are only two new major features in Flash8 inasmuch as writing ActionScript is concerned. BitmapData (which lets you create and modify images dynamically in the flash movie) and FileReference (which lets you upload and download files through the flash movie).

Both those new features may be required for the new version of the website you're trying, and they don't exist at all in Flash7.

But Beatport used to work fine with Flash Player 7

If it was working, why did they think they needed to fix it, lol

Guess I be spending my money at www.stompy.com then!
