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.

Yes, same for me. Also I would rather have a bugfixed 64bit version than this acceleration stuff. It runs fast enough for me, but the wrong use of memcpy produces sound errors on quite a few webpages. It would be a matter of s/\<memcpy\>/memmove/g to fix that and it would be much appreciated! Hm, is there a way to patch the .so in order to bend the references to memcpy to memmove?

There's some tutorials out there on how to create a .so that'll work with LD_PRELOAD... you could replace the memcopy function with memmove... you'd probably need to use nspluginwrapper to run the plugin instead of the plugin directly running in your browser afterwards (so you don't have to LD_PRELOAD your replacement function for the whole browser)
