Flash 10 beta in Firefox 3 on Ubuntu 64 bit

Posted by lazybit on July 6, 2008

Yes, there is no native 64 bit version (again!) for us, but with the good old ndiswrapper and this tutorial you will get it to work.

Full screen view is now working. Everything else seems the same as in version 9.

As in the previous version, it seems amazingly hard on the cpu. And after watching some flash movies on you tube npviewer.bin was consuming a lot of cpu time, even though all flash pages have been closed.

This seems either to be a flash or a flash – ndiswrapper issue.

Because I wanted my cpu back I killed the processes, indirectly disabling flash for the current running firefox.

Again, this seems to be a working solution, but not the best one.

Or maybe flash 64 bit is on its way. Hm, maybe next decade.

If I find out more, I will let you know.
