Flash support in Konqueror

Please list kde version, flash version, 32/64bit here. about:plugins in the urlbar will tell you what flash version you have

Blauzahl WORKSFORME flash 9.0.115 on a 32bit compiled system, 4.0.3ish branch. Note: should test with latest svn up...

I (mutlu_inek) can use flash. It works with a few errors (see test cases below) and reliable crashes of nspluginviewer, not Konqui, every time I browse away from a site using flash. The Nspluginviewer does automatically restart, though, so no grave problem. I am using self-compiled trunk, rev. 798847 799237 800877 804277, and adobe's flashplugin 9.0.124 on Arch Linux, 32 bit.

The nsplugin crashes have been fixed in trunk, I am running rev. 804277 (mutlu_inek).

Test site #1: pathological goodness

http://www.canal13.cl

What happens?

Sahaqiel -If I close the tab after hovering the second ad counting from the right, nspluginviewer will crash. And besides, the ad will expand leaving a blank spot with the size the ad occupied.

Blauzahl - Sad. It doesn't all display. I get gray boxes. I swear this site worked fine for me the last time we did BugDay. I also get the ad expansion blanking the underlying text. screenshot

if you have multiple tabs open, and then hover over the dog ad, then close that tab, does it crash? uga says: uhm... tried but, as soon as I tried opening a new tab, my (google) konqui got locked

mutlu_inek - The site looks and works exactly like in Firefox: screenshot

  • Flash boxes that resize themselves are not displayed correctly, they claim the space they use when they are full-sized by displaying a white box over the other flash content. The same issue with Firefox. Appears to have nothing to do with Konqui.
  • The video player flash box has a black background that is larger than the video player box. The same issue with Firefox. Appears to have nothing to do with Konqui.
  • Nspluginviewer crashes when browsing away from the site.

Test site #2: youtube

http://youtube.com nice shoes.

mutlu_inek - The site looks and works exactly like in Firefox: screenshot

  • Nspluginviewer crashes when browsing away from the site.

Test site #3: Google streetview

http://maps.google.com ---> streetview Does it work?


mutlu_inek - The site looks exactly like in Firefox.
Issues:

  • Full-Screen View does not work. The view is enlarged only within the regular google map box (it does not take over the search results space on the left as in Firefox). Also, the street scene becomes gray and nothing will get the functionality back (not even returning from full-screen view). To be able to use street view again, the street view window has to be closed and a new one opened.
  • Moving the map that underlies the street view moves the street view popup since it is fixed to the location on the map that was searched for [This is correct behavior]. When the street view popup leaves the frame of the regular map view in Firefox, it is _below_ the search results and address bar parts of the website. In Konqueror, however, the street view (without the popup's frame) overlays the rest of the website. See: screenshot
  • Nspluginviewer crashes when browsing away from the site and when closing a street view popup.

bug #161137 probably ought to just be closed, but we'll see if the guy does so first

Test site #4: Music site: jamendo.com

http://jamendo.com

Blauzahl says: Newest site on my shitlist.

  • Super slow.
  • I can't change languages. (works under iceweasel 2.0.0.18)
  • I can't play music. It gives a popup box saying there's a problem with the flash audio backend. In Iceweasel it says it wants Flash 6+ to run jamPlayerWeb. So maybe it just isn't finding it?
  • btw: Lots of commentary on irc about how they just look for ff or ie and refuse everyone else. Probably are screwed here. Don't remember if cloaking made it work.

mutlu_inek finds that the site works reasonably fast and simply browsing it has not yet triggered any errors. However, ...

  • Playing music (whether through the embedded player in the upper right or through the popup player does not work. In both cases, Konqueror simply freezes. In the latter case, the popup does not even show. No hints at what is wrong on the command line. No crash report.
  • Downloading songs in not possible, either. Clicking the "download" button equally freezes Konqueror.
