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.

That's nonsense, Flash is just a piece of crap. Flash operates on RGB data!

"Unfortunately, the Flash Player can not easily make use of this since Sorenson, On2, or H.264 video data -- even though it is decoded as YUV -- has to be converted to RGB and possibly combined with other graphical elements."

Therefore it is slow like hell.
