    News-flash.. x86-64 ? Oh, right, more bits than Adobe can handle. Even if Flash won't be gone in a flash, at least it'll die a slow death.

    Yeah, I had similar hilariousness trying to sort out deps for the 32bit Flash. I was rather surprised libcurl was among them.

    Come on. It can't be that hard to implement all the same interfaces and use all the same libraries in 64bit as in 32bit. If they have to junk driver-specific implementations in Flash, they're obviously doing something wrong...

    Well, on the bright side, people interested testing the latest Firefox beta will find html5 video tag with both VP8 and theora are hardware accelerated on Linux with both 32 and 64 bit browsers. Mozilla's stated goal is to have html5 video tag with both WebM and theora outperform flash on all platforms for the 4.0 release.

    Oh do please share where you find such capabilities listed.

    Never mind, read the notes, partial acceleration and just oGL acceleration.

    Default Adobe continues to amaze

    They seem bent on proving that they don't need Apple's help in marginalizing their products.

    I just installed the Firefox 4 Beta 3 just to test this, and playing back fullscreen youtube videos is slow as molasses here.

    Make sure you've enabled webm beta on youtube and that that particular video has been encoded. Otherwise, you'll be using flash. That being said, keep in mind that not only is Firefox 4 still in beta and unfinished, but so is youtube's webm implementation. There are known bugs with youtubes implementation causing this. If memory serves, a mozilla dev on bugzilla mentioned that google knows about the problem and are working on it. Another issue is if you set the quality to 720p or higher, it downloads slow because if I understand correctly (I'm making an educated guess here), google isn't allocating as much bandwidth for the webm beta as their flash video.
