Adobe releases new 64-bit Flash plugin for Linux

Linux 1

TheDarkener (198348) writes "Adobe seems to have made an about face regarding their support for native 64-bit Linux support for Flash today, and released a new preview Flash plugin named "Square". This includes a native 64-bit version for Linux, which I have verified works on my Debian Lenny LTSP server by simply copying libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins — with sound (which I was never able to figure out with running the 32-bit version with nspluginwrapper and pulseaudio)."

Better video decoding as well. (1)

nschubach (922175) | more than 3 years ago | (#33594540)

I compared the new player with the previous 64-bit beta flash player in Ubuntu and it seems as though video decoding took a step up. I was watching a 720p version of a game trailer with no hitches in Chrome using the Square player and the same video was jumpy and "liney" using the old 64-bit flash player in Firefox on the same system (run right after each other.)

This was on a T61 laptop with integrated Intel gm965 and Core2Duo T8300. Both cores had breathing room as well.
