    Phoronix: 64-bit Adobe Flash Linux Support Is Back

    Earlier this year Adobe made the rather strange decision to pull their 64-bit Linux Flash Player, but now they have comeback to release 64-bit versions of the Adobe Flash Player for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems...

    Using VideoDownloadHelper together with BetterPrivacy, best plugins for flash ever. Throwing the resulting links into Downthemall. Of course unless you want mass-based automatical solution,.. at least I didnt dig it.

    I have no ideia. This is something I read some time ago on an IT news site. If it is true then flash is already dead.

    or at least get behind Gnash and Lightspark for playing back legacy Flash content

    Just incase you're not aware, you can copy the file descriptor from /proc/<PID>/fd if you want the file.....

    Or at least it deletes it. In /proc/<PID>/fd the descriptor says deleted:
    16 -> /tmp/FlashXXU1p1aq (deleted)

    The standards compliant element is <object> which has been around for a long time (maybe even longer than <img>). But browser support for this is not so great.

    ** it'll either launch it into a media player, or if you have a media player plugin (like mplayerplug-in), it'll load it right into the browser.

    This has worked since about firefox 1.0... or maybe even before that.
    <EMBED ...> is not a part of the HTML 4 or xHTML 1 specifications, but it is still widely supported by modern browsers. Unlike other tags, the attributes used by <EMBED ...> depend on the type of plugin being used (this odd free-attribute concept is why <EMBED ...> has been rejected by the HTML standards makers).
