    I can see MAJOR improvements in performance. I can now watch full screen videos without watching a slide show and games play MUCH smoother.

    Great

      Xanikseo, what graphic card and which drivers? What about desktop compositing?

        Flash 10 + FF3 = not so good for stability. I'm seeing lots of crashes, been running this combo for a few hours (32bits, 'buntu-Hardy). Guess I should go and report som bugs.

          Ubuntu OS???

          I love the fact that it is available for "Ubuntu OS "

          even when not taking its meaning literally I fail to see how they support ubuntu when you can't get debs of the packages

            I have a GeForce 8600gts with the 171.06 driver. I am not using compiz (don't have compositing disabled in xorg though). I do however notice that things are slower with compiz, like the old flash player 9 speed.

              I can confirm this, using a 8800GT and Compiz there is no chance to watch flash movies fullscreen in a decent way.

              That being said would be enough to call this new player rubbish again, but it is even worse. It still crashes Firefox quite often, which I believe is related to PulseAudio introduced to Ubuntu with Hardy Heron:
              firefox crashes on flash contents when using libflashsupport

                First thing I did after installing Hardy Heron was to kill off PulseAudio. Using Flash 10 + FF3 with pure ALSA is also very crash-prone, unfortunately. But it's a beta, after all ..

                  It crashes very easyly when you try to watch videos fullscreen. Therefore I use now 9 again.

                    hmm... nspluginwrapper says:
                    m-q plugins # nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins.old/libflashplayer.so
                    *** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins.old/libflashplayer.so: cannot make segment writable for relocation: Permission denied
                    nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins.old/libflashplayer.so
                    I'm doing this as root, and it works for flash 9 (same file permissions, same location). Anybody see anything different? I shouldn't expect it to work any better in 64-bit than it does in 32-bit anyway, given all the crash reports.

                      It's got little to do with PulseAudio. I had several Gutsy boxes without it and I'd get crashes and hangs all the time with Flashplayer 9.

                          Same Adobe crap, honestly, Adobe is probably the most pathetic company for fixing bugs. Only Adobe can put out a plug-in that can't even render their bloody website correctly.

                          Still no 64-bit support despite it being out for 7 years. They use obsolete frameworks and then point fingers at Apple. They bring out a non-native x86 OS X version of CS2 despite having YEARS of advanced notice of Apple intent and never bring out a native binary for CS2 on the OSX86. Instead they screw people over by making them purchase a CS3 upgrade just so they can run it natively AND STILL BUILD IT ON A DEPRECIATED FRAMEWORK!

                          I really truly hope silverlight becomes the new web standard. At least it's open and truly crossplatform and already supports 64-bit.

                            Looks like we're all going to have to keep using nspluginwrapper. Well, at least it's better than having to use a browser chroot like you do for the JRE plugin.
                            or maybe we are should not be using totally crappy crap closed plugins which are the worst slower piece of garbage ever created, and does not run into these issues?

                            I know i dont.

                              Screw that... We just need people to work at providing the standards compliant support (funny...there IS a standard out there for this stuff, and it's NOT Flash or Silverlight...) for things like SVG, etc.

                                Until there is good professional supporting developer tools for those it's all a pipe dream (at least until the popular browsers are 100% compliant with those standards)
