Huge problems with Adobe Flash 10.2.152.27
 
I don't know who to blame, but while Adobe Flash version 10.1.102.65 works perfectly on my system (Fedora 14 i686, Firefox 3.6.13, NVIDIA 8800GT, NVIDIA driver 270.18), Flash version 10.2.152.27 is largely unusable: any flash clip (even static advertisements) cause 100% CPU usage and mouse movement becomes extremely jerky even when I minimize Firefox window to the taskbar.

I for one have downgraded to 10.1.102.65 but I don't quite like this decision, since this version is known to have some security related bugs (I hope Linux users will less likely to be targeted or exploited).

If anyone has the same problem as me or knows the solution to it, please, leave your comment here.

Edit: Another problem is that flash videos leave a video overlay which can be seen in all windows. This can be solved by restarting X server.

Have you tried right-clicking on flash video, Settings, and unchecking Enable Hardware Acceleration?

That seems to make flash 10.2 behave properly for me, but I did not have 100% CPU spikes, only video artifacts and tearing. Had to restart X to clear them.

What a relief.

Flash 10.2 is buggy. It makes any vdpau playback (mplayer etc) tear even if it has no hardware decoding enabled (hardware decoding is disabled by default BTW).

That sounds more like X.org server/NVIDIA drivers problems.

I have similar issues, with "Enable Hardware Acceleration" checked i can see the flash animation in any other window hovering the position where the flash is displayed in firefox :D

Yep, I also see flash animation window in all other applications - I didn't mention that thinking it was a temporary one time glitch.

In case someone misses the old sane Adobe Flash player 10.1.102.65, you can download it

here (it's a signed by Adobe archive, so don't be afraid).
Code:

d617d0e033a2a1c74dd916830089784f  flash-plugin-10.1.102.65-release.i386.rpm

Maybe most people waited so long for VDPAU support in Flash that they accept logging off and on or changing the resolution (and back) once in a while to remove any "shadows" of the last video.
(Or do you just mean that because of overlay, you see the video through other windows?)

fastest option to remove shadows is to go to a virtual terminal (ctrl+alt+f1) and then back to desktop (ctrl+alt+f7)

Yeas, but you will have still the tearing vdpau.

BTW try the 270.26 beta drivers, they seem to work better (and crash the flash plugin more at least in Opera...)
