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."

"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.

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.
