Multimedia, AV It's been a very long wait, but the release is finally here: Adobe has released Flash Player 10.1. Since Flash has come under increasing scrutiny, there's a lot at stake here for Adobe. This release is supposed to use far less resources while still being faster, more stable, and more secure. Update: No 64bit Flash player for now - on any platform. The Linux beta has been axed.

It's Apple/OS X which are pathetic. They recently added a framework which would make it possible to play H.264 videos through the GPU in flash on macs, but they only did it for the latest Nvidia chipsets and GPUs so no luck even if you have an older Intel, Nvidia eventually the latest ATI GPUs they used even if they got H.264 support in the chip.

Blame Apple for total lameness, as always. I to hated flash on my mac, now it's been resting on a shelf for 13 months, I should really be faster in mailing them but it's so f--king disturbing.

Try it in Windows on the same machine and I'm sure things will improve ..


Ummm, Flash has been horrible since before Macromedia had it.

If it's Apple's fault, why does Silverlight run so well?
