    Great, but I am still waiting for flash player x64 to hit at least beta.
    It has been in alpha phase for a long time now.

    Sometimes HD videos on youtube are a bit choppy and don't stream well.
    In windows my HD video experience on youtube is a whole lot better.

    Hmm.. what did you tick in Synaptic, flashplugin nonfree ?

    I think I see. Had to enable the canonical partner repo. for Hardy - will check Jaunty tomorrow.

    I wonder whether the acroread (in repo) version 9.12 is patched since the Adobe patched version is 9.13.1.
    (First time I see acroread in the Hardy repos. due to enabling canonical partner).
    The 9.13.1 downloaded from site does not play nicely with Opera. FF is OK.

    No, it's adobe-flashplugin.

    Yes, indeed.

    My version is 10.0.32.18-1jaunty1.

    I was on about Adobe Reader. BTW the nppdf.so plugin doesn't like Opera.
    It's fine in Firefox.

    Yes, but only for 32 bit OS. The Canonical partner repo doesn't have the 64 bit version as far as I can see - it has to be downloaded via the Adobe labs link
    mentioned.
    Also the Canonical partner 'acroread' is not the patched version - it is an older
    9.12 version which is still vulnerable, even in Linux it seems.
