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.

Maybe it brings out better video quality.

Nope. It is pretty much impossible to decode video and show a coherent picture unless you decode it perfectly. In most codecs, many frames are based on the frames before them. It's simply not possible to improve the quality of a video decoder.

True, but you can use some filters to give a better look to the decoded video, as an example by smoothing up the Jpeg-like "block" encoding artifacts if some are detected...

the visual or perceived quality.
But yes, I think you are right.
