    Surprise surprise......Adobe listened to Linux crowd and released a Alpha x64 Flash plugin. Since all browsers in x64 Linux are x64 as well, a work around was needed to install x32 Flash on these browsers leading to issues like non functional youtube etc. With this, that work around is no longer needed. Its a simple install but you must make sure that the previous x32 plugin if installed has to be removed via synaptic as well as nsplugin wrapper. Mark for complete removal instead of just removal. Then download the player in tar form from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html to your desktop, untar it and do a sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin and fire up your browser, both FF and Opera pick it up nicely and its all x64 more for you now.:)

    Though it's not the same, Gnash is available for x64 afaik. It runs Youtube ok.

    I use Adobe's, but i'm just forwarding this GPL project :)

    The best part is you don't need the unreliable nsplugin wrapper to run x32 plugin in a x64 browser.
