Windows 7: No flash

No flash

I've heard that there was no flash for the 64 bit edition of Window 7. How would I watch videos on the internet without flash?

You have misheard something that is misunderstood and misspoken.

Watch those videos as you always have.

There is no flash plugin for 64 bit browser, but a 32 bit browser still works.

Like Gary said cooldude101,

There is flash for the default 32 bit browser/s that you use in Windows 7x64. So you'd just have to have Flash installed and it will work with whatever 32 bit (X86) browser you're using. It has nothing to do with if you're using 32 or 64 bit Windows. It has to do with the browsers. 32 bit browsers -Flash =Yes. 64 bit browser -Flash=No.

Thanks for the welcome.

So Fire Fox for 32 bit will work on 64 bit?

Yes it will. The 32 bit is what you get as default when you go to download FF from Mozilla. You'd have to specifically go to a link that offers the 64 bit one, such as this one. Firefox download - Mozilla x86-64

You would have to use either a flash replacement 64 bits or flash 32bit.

At the Adobe site it says they are working a 64bit plugin but it isn't ready yet. I bet it won't be long now that windows 7 is released.
