    Phoronix: Adobe Flash 11.2 Beta Brings New Linux Work

    Adobe Flash Player 11 was officially released at the beginning of the month after being in public beta for a while. This afternoon Adobe has now put out a beta for Flash Player 11.2. The main Linux feature is multi-threaded video decoding support...

    I only use vdpau on my ion. For my i7 i disable vdpau to increase stability and get rid of rendering artefacts.

    Assuming 11.2 flash beta is working for you, is the seek bug fixed? (Didn't work for me, just crashed) This bug is in 11.1 if you EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1, if you seek in videos, video freezes and only sound plays.

    Using EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode with flashplayer 11.2.202.160, nvidia proprietary 290.10, I don't get HW rendering, but only 3Dmode: Software (Direct blitting).
    Furthermore, watching youtube videos, i get wrong colors (blue and red colors swapped). Video working fine with previous flash versions.

    Do you really get hw accelerated State3d rendering? As I wrote in another thread, Adobe seems to have HW rendering disabled for Linux:
    > This is not a bug. We disabled GPU acceleration with StageVideo and Stage3D on Linux because of drivers issues on the Linux platform.

    Using an unpatched flash plugin and this global override:
    Code:
    mkdir -p /etc/adobe
    echo EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1 > /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
    You get accellerated decode AND rendering with 11.2. With 11.0/1 you only get accellerated decode. There are definitely systems where this vdpau support is unstable, most likely with older xservers but could not identify the problem 100%. if you have got good eyes you see at the bottom of 1080p youtube videos some wrongl rendered lines with accellerated decode. that is on with flash 11.1 on win as well without watermark. So rendering problems are not system specific, when you disable acc. rendering (usually you can only disable both on win) for linux just use 11.1 then those artefacts disappear.

    Are you sure it doesn't even use VDPAU (to accelerate Stage3D) on hosts with proprietary nvidia drivers?

    Kind of makes you wish there never had been flash plugin for linux at all, or one of the same quality as the fglrx ati driver. It would have sucked being on linux without youtube, etc, but then at least maybe google would have forced through some alternative for video playback compatible with linux, not just danced around it with some in-progress trial (html5).

    So we have another "Hi there" from Adobe for Linux users. When I write "we" I really mean all that unfortunate people around that have to use crappy Adobe flash player software when browsing the web from the *nix-based OS of out choice.

    Here is a bug report in official Adobe bug tracker about Adobe Flash behavior under Linux with regards to HW video scaling: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?...bug&id=3002806

    They had closed is today as a "DUPLICATE". Needless to say that it had not only been wrongly marked as duplicate, but also the bug it had been marked as being duplicate of (https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?...bug&id=2992148) was also wrongly closed as "NotABug". Here we are, people, that is the real Adobe linux support policy. Don't be fooled by what they write in the release announcements and what Michael re-prints in the news. People at Adobe are incapable of writing non-windows software (actually most of their Windows software also sucks - progs from Master Collection are slow as hell and looks more like a monstrous instead of a software one wish to work with; Adobe Player on Windows is also a misbehaving piece of shit in some circumstances), and don't wont to bother theirselves learning how to program for GLX/Linux/e.t.c..

    I've only noticed it on youtube, I'm not sure if its something like a watermark or just a graphical glitch (I just see some white lines on the bottom right corner of the youtube player)
