Still have issues in 270.26 with nvidia 8200. The flash video/app areas sometimes can be seen in the background of other tabs - the text is visible, but the background has the flash plugins images.

This happens with Chromium (latest dev), Firefox (beta 4 11), SeaMonkey, Opera (11.01).

Switching to another virtual terminal and back fixes this issue, but the flash area becomes grey in case of youtube videos and most of the times dont repaint. Apps such as Farmville on Facebook repaint.

Edit:

This may happen only on cards that support vdpau. On my 8200 (vdpau B) i have these issues, but on a Quadro NVS 135M (vdpau A) i saw it only once or twice.
Wonder how it does on older cards.

Right click on flash window from context menu select settings and disable hardware acceleration. Flash uses OpenGL and GLX to accelerate drawing. It looks there is incompatibility between OpenGL/GLX and VDPAU. Disabling hardware acceleration does not disable VDPAU. Just OpenGL/GLX acceleration of flash.

Disabling hardware acceleration does not disable VDPAU. Just OpenGL/GLX acceleration of flash.

This seems to be untrue: Because after disabling, I can grab the video. With VDPAU on, I can only grab the color key.

Disabling hardware acceleration probably slows it even more.

I found that using the libgcflashplayer.so implementation of flash from google chrome (unstable) works well (can be used in any browser, i use it in Opera). They have a special version, 10.2 r154 flash included with that browser.
Just link it to your $HOME/.mozilla/plugins/ folder (from its location - /opt/google/chrome/) and delete any other flash plugins.

Thank you! I can finally use Adobe Flash Player 10.2.
Code:
    File: libgcflashplayer.so
    Version: 
    Shockwave Flash 10.2 r154
It's unbelievable Google made Adobe developers release a special bug-free Adobe Flash player only for Google Chrome web browser.

Who likes conspiracy theories? I smell the one here

P.S. repo users can delete standard flash player either by running
Code:
sudo apt-get remove flash-plugin
or
Code:
sudo yum remove flash-plugin
or removing the entire /usr/lib/flash-plugin directory.

P.P.S. Mind that with this ("Chrome") plugin, Firefox cannot run Adobe Flash as an external process, thus if adobe flash crashes, Firefox will crash too.

P.P.P.S. VDPAU acceleration on youtube videos with Adobe Flash player 10.2r154 doesn't work. The new flash player CPU usage is virtually the same as in the old one.

Could you upload somewhere that version (if it's not against the license) cause my release of chromium - 11.0.672.2 doesn't have included flash (i guess it's Gentoo's policy).
Edit:
OK, i got it from official Google release. But still, with this version: 10.2 r154 i got "undefined video rendering" on youtube and kinda high cpu usage (about 60%), when with first release with vdpau support I got cpu usage <5%. I got "hardware acceleration" enabled and EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1 in mms.config. I'm on 64-bit platform and using nsplugin wrapper with the latest chromium: 11.0.672.2. Same CPU usage on Firefox

For the first time in my 10 years of Linux, I experienced a total system crash caused by Firefox 3.6.13 + nVidia 260.19.36 + Flash 10.2.152.27 (with EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1).

I'm trying to reproduce the crash.
Is it possible to get a valid bug-report after a reboot?

was it a freeze? or a reboot?
the logs should still be at /var/logs ( like dmesg, dmesg.0, syslog, syslog.0 etc )

As stated above, the r154 version behaves exactly as the 10.1 cpu usage wise, probably the display methods are the same too. The buggy stage video is disabled in it somehow for good. The mms.cfg file has no influence on it.

The idea here is to have a *working* 10.2 flash player.
If you want low cpu usage, use the standard Adobe 152, but i personally have tons of problems with that one.

BTW, does anyone have tried this plugin with Ati cards (HD 4xxx)?

It was a freeze.

Unfortunately, It seems that no useful information is present in the log files.
