Default Native 32 and 64-bit linux Flash 10 Preview Release available

This is of interest to those of us running old versions of Flash,
especially on 64-bit installs without 32-bit support (looks in
mirror<g>).

Download site is http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html
To find out where to install, go to "aboutlugins" in Firefox, and see
where your current version of libflashplayer.so is installed. In my
case it's /opt/Adobe/flash-player/libflashplayer.so

To install...

* for 64-bit version download the file http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/flashplayer_square_p1_64bit_linux_091510.tar.gz

* for 32-bit version download the file http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/flashplayer_square_p1_32bit_linux_091510.tar.gz

* exit Firefox

* mv your current copy of libflashplayer.so to another directory as a
backup, in case the new one doesn't work for you

* extract libflashplayer.so from the downloaded tar.gz into the
directory which you removed libflashplayer.so from.

* fire up Firefox, and away you go

* note that when the release version comes out, you'll need to manually
remove the Preview Release libflashplayer.so

Good news
=========
It works for me, so far. I've tried live365.com, both via my paid
account and via the free (with commercials) option. It works. So does
Youtube.

Bad news
========
It's more painfull building up a collection of flv videos. The old
version used to copy Youtube videos/songs/whatever into /tmp with a
filename beginning with "Flash". It would get wiped each time you
played a new video/whatever. But you could always move it out to
another place before playing the next video. Rename the file to
<something>.flv and mplayer plays it beautifully. Nice way to build up
a collection.

The new version dumps it in the "Cache" directory of whatever Firefox
profile I'm using. You have to cd to the "Cache" subdirectory, and
execute...

file * | grep Macro

and you'll get a list of all "Macromedia Flash" files in the directory.
One of them is the most recent Flash file you played on Youtube. You
have to do some digging. Again, copy it to another file elsewhere to
keep a copy.

I have not tried the new version, but this should still work:
the flash-process has a file-open-link in /proc/<PID>/fd/
The /tmp/Flashxxxxxx file was symlinked there. So now the filename and
path are different, but you can probably still find it like that faster
(at least as long as the flv is open by the plugin

Bye,
Daniel

I've just installed it and it's working nicely for me.

Thanks for the link and install instructions. After creating
directory /opt/Adobe/flash-player/ and extracting the tarball,
I needed to create a symlink for
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so, and then restart firefox.

Hi, this Flash 10.2-pre is in portage since 2 days ago. You'll just
have to unmask it.

Actually, that's wrong. It's not masked at all It's in ~arch, so
you only need to keyword it.

Which tends to fill up disk space, if not wiped regularily ;-o

Which is more correct, as it belongs into the browser's cache.
Of course, Mozilla's way of placing it's cache directly into
user profiles (instead of separate dirs under $TEMP) is the wrong
approach, but that's another story.


BTW: if you wanna catch videos and other media you came along
while surfing, just use a proper proxy (eg. wwwoffle) for that.
