Multimedia, AV The sweet smell of competition is lingering in the air. That sweet smell which indicates that somewhere in the vicinity a company is working on actually improving a product so we can all benefit. This time around, it's Adobe, delivering the first Flash 10.2 beta. Prime feature? Complete hardware acceleration of the entire video pipeline - fully cross platform, cross-form factor. Cross-platform! There's a catch, though.

Pretty cool stuff, but I'm not going to go with a wrapped plugin solution again (Pure 64Bit Linux here) to try out the 32bit Beta...

The 64Bit version of Flash 10.1 exists and seems to work at least as well as the 32Bit version, when are they going to stop maintaining them separately?

EDIT: Actually, the 64Bit version is at 10.2, but doesn't have the hardware accel yet... HoHum.
