Adobe Flash Player 10 RC

Seven months. That the time needed by the Adobe team to release Flash Player 10 RC (release candidate) and move from beta testing from January release. Here's the detailed what goes into this build (569):
  • Camera input works a whole lot better (V4L1 and V4L2 cameras both work; V4L2 cameras don't peg the CPU anymore)
  • Software fullscreen performance is vastly improved
  • Faster, more stable windowless mode (but be sure to use very recent browser builds)
  • SSL now handled through NSS instead of flashsupport-OpenSSL alliance
  • White speckles are gone from video playback
  • Important stability fixes (fewer crashes)
  • Still not 64-bit native, just to get that out of the way
Willing to test this version? Check the requirements first, as it will have more requirements than the current version (9.x). Look at those requirements here
