    Flash 11.2 released

    By the way, Flash 11.2 has been officially released a few days ago, and it fuckin' rocks on Nvidia Geforce 8+ hardware! I don't get any crashes anymore, it uses hardware accelerated decoding and rendering (vpdau) and therefore hardly uses any cpu resources. I installed it via the firefox flash aid addon, to enable hardware acceleration, very handy method!

      Try disabling accelerated video decoding and be surprised how the best working flash version so far has swapped red/blue channels.
      Also I wouldn't call it good, not even usable, until https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?...bug&id=2908816 is fixed.

        I wonder if the upcoming switch to Wayland had anything to do with this Adobe decision.

            Hmm you are right, it does not like fast seeking.. Which Nvidia driver version are you using?
