Reminder: The Adobe page referenced above will show different versions for the plug-in and the Active-X control. The plug-in will be reported as 10.2.161.23. The active-X control will be reported as the version Airbot mentions above. Windows will indicate each as the version Airbot mentions above. The Adobe download page does not mention a specific version number other than "Preview 3".

In other words, they're both 10.3.162.28. The plugin version on whatever page you get reporting it as 10.2.161.23 is wrong.

With all due respect, Airbot, tell that to Adobe. I'm just trying to alleviate potential queries from those using the plug-in, as opposed to the Active-X control, who might wonder why Adobe is reporting their version as different from what might be expected.

Airbot, I owe you a huge apology.

I pondered a while regarding your statement above. As I mentioned previously, I have a great deal of respect for you so I dug a little deeper. I began to wonder if my results on the Adobe page were, indeed, incorrect as you stated.

I uninstalled all Adobe Flash installations (the latest 32 bit and the latest 64 bit Preview 3 Active-X controls and plug-ins) and performed a fresh install.

The Adobe page I referenced earlier now indicates the correct version commensurate with the Windows reporting version of 10.3.162.28.

Please accept my apology, Airbot, I'm sorry.

It's no problem.

Like I mentioned before, better to go off of what the installer package and what it tells you in Programs and Features instead of relying on a web page detection.

How do we test the hardware acceleration with Firefox? Also, do we need to have Firefox beta 4 and IE 9 beta in order to get the acceleration? I am not currently using either of these beta browsers, just the latest stable versions.

I tested Megavideo in Firefox 3.6.12 and my cpu usage actually increased by 15% from around 21% to 36% with the same video. My video card is an ATI 4350 512mb that does support this hardware acceleration. My cpu is a little aged but is an Intel Dual 1.63ghz, so I do have the dual core capabilities.

Also the test was done with Flash player 10.2.161.23 beta 2 vs. the stable 10.1.102.64. I will test 10.3.162.28 (or whatever they are releasing from the Labs page now) while I wait for an answer.

You just have the hardware acceleration checked from Firefox's Options/Advanced/General, and from IE9's Tools/Internet Options/Advanced. And yes, those versions have the HA, not the stable ones yet.

I don't see the option in Firefox 3.6.12. So I take it I need beta 4?

Yeah, this is what I meant.

3.6.12 is a stable version. And fyi, it's been updated to 3.6.13 today.

Firefox 3.6.13 Released
