The flash overkill at http://musicovery.com/ works fine with it, and youtube etc.

Your ebuild should use the .i386.rpm instead of the .tar.gz installer, or you have to edit it not to use rpm.eclass

I fixed the ebuild as per your direction, as the tar.gz one didn't have a doc. The ebuild needs to be named netscape-flash-10.0.1.218.ebuild for it to work, which is the proper version.

Is there going to be a genuine 64 bit version, or are we going to have to carry on using nspluginwrapper?

Not any time soon.
Maybe gnash (or similar) will catch up, now that the specs are fully open...

Installed, works good. Performance has improved significantly.

UPDATE: Full screen performance still rather poor, besides it has problems leaving the full screen mode (needs a few seconds to update itself).
Tested on AMD64.

/me hugs swfdec.
I only use this thing for youtube and google video, so swfdec is enough :P .
I'd consider switching if there was a native x86_64 version...

fullscreen on youtube is pretty good. Response is immediate to fullscreen/unfullscreen (especially when video _is_ playing!). Tested on opera 9.5 beta2, firefox 2.

For the curious, grab the ebuild here:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=222247

On the first try, it looks as it really has vastly improved performance when watching full-screen videos.

why use this over the net-www/netscape-flash-10_beta20080515 build that is in the tree?

Or am I missing something?

Does anyone know how much extra effort a 64-bit native version of flash would actually be, seems pretty lazy if it's just a recompilation? Would have been a good time to get it done.

Yes, you are. :) By the time this topic has been created there was no flash 10 in the tree. :)

If it's just recompilation then it's no effort at all, but still there's a dependency check needed, to ensure, that proper libraries are used. I think that would be all. Of course we would have a 64-bit player if Flash was open-source (just as Phobos666 said). If not from Adobe, then from the community. :)

Unfortunately it's way more than recompilation. See http://blogs.adobe.com/penguin.swf/2006/10/whats_so_difficult_64bit_editi.html

Anyways, amd64 support? VOTE here: https://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FP-37 :)

IMHO it's just a more complicated way of saying: "we need to recompile every tool used to make flash for AMD64 in order to recompile Flash for AMD64". Either way, if it's not about the 32-bit and 64-bit pointers, then IT IS just a "recompile away".

Look at Gnash and Swfdec: both do Flash and both support x86 and AMD64... So I ask: what's so difficult?

So I've stayed away from the Firefox 3 beta because I'm running an ~amd64 system and I was worried there would be flash issues. Even as it is, using Firefox 2 with netscape-flash (and nspluginwrapper) isn't the most stable thing I've used. I'll take your word for it that mozilla-firefox-3_beta5 + netscape-flash-10_beta20080515 + nspluginwrapper won't cause me any issues (I just want to youtube, really).

However, when trying to upgrade to firefox 3 (not the bin), after adding nss and nspr to package.unmask, I was harassed because openoffice-2.4.0 depends on firefox 2. If you're using openoffice-2.4.0 as well, how did you get around this? I realize I could install xulrunner, but is there any way I could avoid that?

TIA

don't nail me down on that stable thingy :P

it's more stable than every but not THAT stable, but should survive youtube sessions ;)

and yes, I went the xulrunner way - I didn't want to fiddle with firefox 3.0beta5 & the openoffice ebuild - dunno if it'll work at all ...

openoffice-bin of course works with it, it isn't explicitely dependent on it :wink:

That probably makes the most sense, but I'm a masochist and I like to compile my own openoffice and firefox. Apparently kernelOfTruth does as well.

Fair enough, I suppose I can just wait it out. Does anyone know why the openoffice ebuild explicitly depends on =www-client/mozilla-firefox-2* (with the firefox USE flag enabled)? I'm not really sure what the dependency is for, but if firefox 3 can satisfy it, do you think its worth opening a bug report to change the dependency to >=www-client/mozilla-firefox-2*?
