      Slow? There hasn't been a release for 7 months now, and their website hasn't been updated for more than a year...

        Gnash displays youtube videos, including HD. It is capable to play flash animations and games if they do not rely on new version of actionscript.
        Around ~80% flash movies and ~50% with flash games. However sometimes it fails to run "player" applications, which render gnash for web videos or audio useless.

        OpenGL frontend is broken on nvidia binary, pango backend is half-broken - yet uses very low CPU. The standard backend is good, but is highly cpu intensive, around 1.5x of blob flash.

        Adobe _is_ developing flash for Linux, just not thru the old interface, hence FF is stuck at flash v. 11.2. However, Chrome on Linux ships with the latest flash Version: 11.4.31.110.
        Adobe delivers Falsh only via PPAPI, so its not for linux, but for PPAPI.

        As official site says, version 11.2 is the last supported on Linux.

          There is sporadic activity in the repo, though, so at least It's not like it's stood still for those 7 months.

            Official flashplayer license forces anyone using it to accept it and forbids anyone from writing compatible client.
            Even if one installs player, this is sufficient to prevent him from working on gnash. This is proprietary at its best.

              Why are there still two projects surely the devs from these projects should get together and work on merging them into one project. Seems like a huge waste of effort to me.

                Porno

                I only use Flash for porno.

                So for Lightspark or Gnash to be a replacement, it needs to be porno-compatible.

                  The only viable alternatives only work outside the browser (like the on I created where you just have to put the link in order to see the video). So until this get corrected there is no hope for that (apart of course of using the mobile version of the website if he has any).

                    So true it hurts.

                      Now if only it worked on YouTube, instead of displaying the "loading dots" at the bottom of the applet and nothing else.
