Going back to Flash player

April 12, 2008 — BarryK
See my earlier post today that I had upgraded to Adobe Flash player

Leon commented that works better for him, so I did some more tests.

Testing the latest... curses, I am now getting it to hang when I close a tab. Sometimes it does, sometimes not. It won't play full-screen -- something flashes up briefly then gives up.

Back on I don't get full-screen either.

"In Seamonkey: - Click the rightmost icon on the control panel under the video clip. Right click the exclamation icon that appears at the right side of the browsers status bar at the bottom of the screen. Click the prompt message that is shown above the icon to start playing video. - The required browsers settings are: >Edit >Preferences >Navigator >Tabbed Browsing >Link open behavior >A new window: true >Edit >Preferences >Navigator >Tabbed Browsing >Links from other applications >A new window: true If a 'tab' instead of 'new window' is set then video will play in enlarged mode. But only Flash player works that way for me using SeaMonkey or Firefox.

"A later flash player enables video playback on pupular sites such as facebook and vimeo. Ive noticed its a bit faster on older kit too. On the whole, flash is a whole world of pain :-(
