Adobe releases 64bit flash update for Linux
 
The new file can be downloaded here. (32 bit is available as well) I have installed it already, and it works on vimeo and youtube.

Alien Bob has put some packages up for it on Alien Pastures for anyone who still has any faith in Adobe software.

I'll continue to abstain I think.

Keep in mind it's a preview relase not meant for production.

The subject emerged in this earlier thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...9/#post4094417

Hifive!

I think most of the software on my machine is some kind of alpha, beta, preview etc. Until the HTML5 video tag takes off, I begrudgingly accept flash as a necessary evil.

Niiice!

For those who have tried it: any critical bugs? Is the performance as good as the 32-bit version, which can currently play 720p Youtube videos full-screen at full frame-rate without taking up 100% of your CPU?

EDIT: apparently so!

Argh, should have brought my notebook into work today... will have to wait until I get home to give it a whirl! Thanks for the news!

This is good news. For better or worse, Flash is a big part of the web and it absolutely behooves Adobe to keep its product up-to-date and stable. I'll give the new packages a try and see how well they work.

I've downloaded and installed Alien Bob's package and it works just fine. No complaints.
You do have to reboot your machine or, at least, I did. I don't know if just re-starting
the xserver will do the same trick.
Thank you, Alien Bob.

Working fine here too.

Thanks for packages.

Hmm? I didn't have to do either one; I just made sure that my web browsers were closed when I did the upgrade.

About time too! I always found the old test 64-bit Flash plugin far stabler than the 32-bit one.

JamesGT 09-16-2010 07:13 PM

Works great! I haven't any issues yet. I can even stream from Hulu now in Slackware64.

ysg 09-16-2010 09:09 PM

Excellent.

I hope Adobe is finally taking this whole 64-bit thing seriously.

kingbeowulf 09-16-2010 09:40 PM

Well, slap me senseless...it WORKS. wu-ha ha ha ha !

This should hold me until the HTML5 folks get there codec act together.
