and so 11.2 would be the last one, even if this version will be maintained for 5 years

We hoped that the first issues with Flash Player contents will be happened not so soon, but my son today said me:

I remembered that I had read an article about Google-Chrome describing a Pepper Plugin API (PPAPI):
this depends on Chrome NaCl, so even if we can copy it on Mozilla Firefox, this will not work with
FIrst Chrome using this Pepper Plugin API (PPAPI) was version 20 with Flash Player 11.3
Flash Plugin 11.3 and greater solves the problem of Blue video on YouTube resulted in nVidia GPU hardware acceleration, it was fixed and now it works perfectly well as integration of new fixes and improvements for safer and efficient viewing of multimedia content using Flash Adobe.
I remind you that Flash Player > 11.2 is only available in Chrome and not in Chromium or other spin-off
For Firefox, Opera, Reqonq and all other browsers:
Adobe would release a debug version of the plugin with which they can also use the new Flash Player plugin.
The new plugin should have asked anyway Pepper Plugin API (PPAPI) which depend on the NaCl Chrome then to use Flash Player on Firefox we need also install Google-Chrome.
but nowdays the situation seems like stalled, if I am not wrong...
I never believed it would hit users so soon... but new contents start to ask for 11.3 version as minimal requirements, so that's a real problem
Issues with old Flash Player version might become even worse with time passing, when some apps and pages could become unreadable...
I know that for many people says that flash player is crapped because it wastes too many cpu resources and freezes so many times, but we still need this crapped thing, at least until there will be something that we can replace with
I am trying the only solution that I can see now: I downloaded and installed Google Chrome
ROSA & Mandriva - 64bit
Code: Select all
Code: Select all
> Chrome Versione 24.0.1312.52
in the address form I write
while the same with Chromium-browser shows meAdobe Flash Player (2 files) - Versione: 18.104.22.168
Shockwave Flash 11.5 r31
Nome: Shockwave Flash 22.214.171.124
Adobe Flash Player - Versione: 11.2 r202
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
Final results: My son is happy!
Tested with http://www.gioco.it :
Crazy Penguin Wars, Race Track Rivals and many other new games
with flash player 11.2 dont play, now with 11.5 inside chrome it's OK
I wish hope that we will have the compatibility with the new Flash Player versions also with all other Internet Browser soon
In the meanwhile your chromium-browser can use that:
