Finally a 64 Bit FLASH Plugin Available

This is just a heads up

I took the trouble to nag adobe about the lack of a 64 bit plugin. I pointed out that it was a trivial thing to compile on a 64 bit machine, instead of which they want us to junk all the 64 bit software from gxine, sun, mozilla etc, just to use their 32 bit plugin cos they were in tha last millenium. I pointed out the difficulties with automated installers and remarked that they wouldn't ask windows users to hack their machines!

To my immense surprise I got a reply that they have an alpha 64bit Flash 10 plugin (not official, not supported, etc. etc) on their site at

This installed and worked for me on slamd64-12.2. I trust it will save a bit of farting about with 32 bit browsers. They say it's alpha
which means: "if it's broke, patch it and tell us what you did" but they don't provide the source :-/.

I installed this a few days ago and it is much more stable on my PC than the 32 bit version I was using previously.

Guys, this has been available since at least last fall(September?). I think I am on the third update for it, so keep an eye out for updates.

I installed it last week, shortly after installing Slamd64. No problems so far.

Maybe now they'll find a way to play Flash video via Jack without Pulse audio

I had it installed for a while, but switched to gnash to increase overall stability.
