Does flash work in trunk? 3.5.9? With what version? There are lots of variables here. I want a nice table to help developers in the quest to make annoying software work. Since most of the bug reports we get on this seem to be somewhat useless, and hard to collate, I made this page.
about:plugins in the urlbar will tell you what flash version you have
Reproducibility is what we are looking for here, backtraces aren't as useful, apparently. Eventually we can perhaps just link to this webpage from bugreports, as we'll have a nice matrix of what versions work, right?
Please fill in the below table, and go through a few sites if you have the time. The last ones aren't as important. I just want to know if they work for you or not.
|Name||KDE version number (distro/SVN rev)||Flash version||32 or 64bit?||Works?||Comments?|
|Blauzahl||svn branch ~4.0.3 revBD2||9.0.115||32||works||pretty damn stable|
|mutlu_inek||trunk svn r804277||9.0.115?||32||see below||-|
|hays||gentoo 4.0.4||9.0.124||64||mostly works||-|
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).
Flash Player 9.0.48 works perfectly in my Konq r803177 (trunk). IIRC 9.0.115 hung randomly, crashed, and continuously spiked the CPU. System is 32bit. Logixoul 11:00, 8 May 2008 (CEST)
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.
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
hays - Works for me, no crashing. Looks like Firefox. Rendering looks similar if not the same. KDE 4.0.4/Flash 126.96.36.199/AMD64/Gentoo
Blauzahl - worked for me, will retest if someone gives me a hockey video
hays - Only plays two seconds of the video. KDE 4.0.4/Flash 188.8.131.52/AMD64/Gentoo
http://maps.google.com ---> streetview Does it work?
mutlu_inek - The site looks exactly like in Firefox.
hays - Seems to work for the most part. Noticed full-screen differences from Firefox, but still had functionality.
http://jamendo.com skip this site, it is hardcoded to look for ff or ie apparently. send them an email complaining instead.
Blauzahl says: Newest site on my shitlist.
mutlu_inek finds that the site works reasonably fast and simply browsing it has not yet triggered any errors. However, ...
http://www.atlasct.com/israel/citymouse/ You should see two maps, one bigger at the center and one smaller by the right.
Has a ton of scriptable flash.
worksforme atm. Blauzahl
