I can't wait for an ebuild to make it to portage. I'm biting at the chomp to unmerge nspluginwrapper. If IcedTea ever gets stable I am going to be a happy camper.

I have it installed and it works a lot better than 32Bit plugin wrapped in NSPluginwrapper.

I can say it works much better than swfdec-mozilla which I was using. I have also determined that the Internet is a scary place with proper Flash support...

I really hope that a native 64 bit flash plugin will finally put to rest all my problems with flash and pulseaudio. I can't wait to try it out later today.

I've got IcedTea emerged in just fine using an overlay. Unfortunately, the only site that I've found that still uses Java (ADP timesheets), doesn't work with it. On the bright side, Sun has said that 64-bit support should be included in u12 (the current release is u10). I don't know what their release schedule is, though. I haven't gotten Java to work with nspluginwrapper (please point me in the right direction if you know of a solution).

I just looked at the netscape-flash-10.0.20.7_alpha.ebuild and it looks to be putting the x86_64 flash player library in /opt/netscape/plugins. Isn't the whole /opt/netscape tree for the 32-bit version?

I manually downloaded the libflashplayer.so file and put it in /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugin and it works! It's that a smarter place for the file?

Here's how I installed it:
Code:
emerge -C netscape-flash nspluginwrapper
emerge --depclean -a
mkdir /usr/lib64/mozilla-firefox/plugins
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla-firefox/plugins

Note: Both /opt/netscape and /usr/lib64/nsbrowser directories were gone after doing the first two steps above.

I just had a problem with 32bit firefox binary running flash 10 (I am on a 64 bit machine) where the entire browser would freeze if I tried playing a video in full screen (such as Hulu.com or adultswim.com). Would someone who has this installed check and see if they have the same problem with 64 bit flash?

Hulu seems ok in full-screen. Adultswim has screen corruption in full-screen but the videos play. YouTube slows down considerably and isn't watch-able in full-screen. All sites seem ok in normal view.

Moved from Multimedia to Duplicate Threads.
See alpha version of 64-bit Adobe Flash Player 10 for Linux.
