Multimedia, AV "What follows is a list of the APIs that the current Linux Flash Player 9 development version is using. I debated whether it was appropriate to publish this information. Then I remembered that anyone who knows what they're doing should be able to figure this stuff out by themselves anyway once the final Player is released."

Am I missing something important/revolutionary? ;)

Yes. The important thing is: not everyone thinks the same things you do.

While it would be nice for youtube and google video etc. to post their videos in a real video format (e.g. XviD/MP3), they don't. People still want to watch them. Therefore they need flash.

And some content is even suited to flash, e.g. homestarrunner.com and that cool Japanese stick-men fighting animation (can't remember what is was called).

Anyway I digress. You obviously knew all that. You're just being and ideological idiot. I expect you're deluded that linux is easy to use too.

Nice troll. Short, insulting, to the point.

This is OSnews, by the way. If you're really serious about this linux-is-easy-to-use-delusion thing, I suggest you update your bookmarks to www.digg.com.

And on a side note, yes, youtube is the coolest thing that happened on my computer since napster. And it works flawlessly with flash 7 in any distro I've cared to try.

Agreed

Works? Yes. Flawlessly? Not quite. The famous A/V sync bug will shows itself when you try to have som fun at Youtube.

Really? Give it a shot on any architecture that isn't i386. And that situation isn't likely to change for a while either, as apparently even Flash 9 for Linux won't have an AMD64 version.

That's why we need an open-source Flash, not all that ideological stuff.
