    Does this fix the issue in Lion OS which causes my iMac to freeze when trying to view a video after the computer has been "woken up" from "sleep"??

    I know I'm not the only one with this issue.

    It doesn't work in Windows Vista using a Standard Account.  The plugin is NOT listed in the Firefox's plugin list for the current user (Standard Account).

    10.3.183.5 has fixed the "Mac OS X Lion: The Flash Player settings dialog does not respond to mouse clicks (2918693)" problem, good work, thanks.

     

    However under Mac OS X Lion I am still unable to select my webcam. I have an inbuilt iSight cam on my MBP 15" 2010 and also an iSight cam on my Apple Cinema Display 27" 2010. I am only able to use the iSight cam on my MBP (so it's quite usless when I'm at my desk using my monitor).

     

    ie. in the Adobe Flash Player Settings, Camera tab I only have one entry for USB Video Class Video available in the drop down menu.

     

    May I please ask if this is a known problem and will be fixed in a later release?

     

    Some notes:

     

    This happens in the latest versions of Chrome and Safari.

     

    There was not a problem on OS X 10.6.8 (and whatever the latest version of Flash Player was then?).

     

    Both my iSight cams are selectable using Facetime and iChat. I've no other webcams on my system.

     

    There is no way AFAIK in OS X to disbale only one webcam; you can disable them both via moving a system file, but even this crude workaround is not available.

     

    Thanks again, we're getting to a stage where people with MacBooks can use their webcams at a workstation it seems!

    OK, sorry, this still doesn't work but a workaround is simply to close the lid on my MacBook. This means the MacBook's iSight camera is no longer available so Flash Player now uses the Cinema Display's.

     

    I'm -pretty- sure that I could select my webcam in 10.6.8 (contradicting myself slightly from before) as I can in Facetime and iChat? However is Flash's problem that it can't cope with two webcams of the same name, in this case they're both called "USB Video Class Video"? Facetime calls one "Display iSight" and the other "Built in iSight"?

    What's the new silent install command? The ActiveX version used to use -install and Other was /install, both of which bring up the basic UI with status bar and Finished button, then the Flash Player completion webpage opens.

     

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Hello Chris,

     

    Even with this latest update, in OS X Lion enabling hardware acceleration seems to kill video when streaming live video from CNN. Go to the Flash settings and enable hardware acceleration on an OS X system running Lion, and then go to http://www.cnn.com/video, click the "Live" button at the top, and then select one of the live streaming broadcasts at the bottom of the screen (under the subscription streams). The video will load and ask to install the octoshape plugin. It will show the advertisement perfectly fine, but then will show a blank window when the video content loads. The audio seems to work just fine.

     

    This is on a MacBook Pro (2009 model), and happens when either of the GPUs is active (Geforce 9400M or 9600M). The system is fully updated, running the latest version of Safari, Firefox, and Chrome, and the problem happens on all three browsers. I have cleared caches and cookies for the browsers, and have tried loading both with and without the octoshape plugin installed...still no go. The only way to get the video to work in this situation is to disable hardware acceleration.

    Do the 10.3.183.5 MSI installers not have the Windows Control Panel applet included?

     

    Installed overtop of an older install that already has the applet, it does not delete it, but if you install fresh from the 10.3.183.5 MSI's, it does not install the applet.

    Chris

     

    I use to be able to go the the trouble shoot page for installing flash player and there would be an option for manual intstall.

    I used that to bypass all the adobe air and other stuff

     

    Today I went to that page and there was no option for manual install

     

    I use Vista 32 bit OS an Internet Explorer

     

     

    has this option been taken away from users?

    Chris, I'm using IE as my browser and I don't have any proxy stuff

     

    So are you saying that the link

    Flash Player for ActiveX

     

    install_flash_player_ax.exe

     

    should take me to the correct installation of the lates Flash player for Vista OS with IE as browser?

    so it gives me exactly the same thinga s far as flash player normal download, in regard to the flash player stuff itself (exclusive of the get plus stuff)?

    Just as if I did the normal download from the download page?

     

    and which one do I use for Vista the active x or the plugin?

    Major troubles for us as it is no longer compatable with Pendulab's ChatBlazer.

     

    http://www.chatblazer.com/

     

    We are dealing with lots of support phone calls and e-mails due to this. Ugh!!!

     

    I don't know if the problem is Adobe Flash or ChatBlazer, but it has worked fine with prior versions of Flash. This is a major issue for us as a company, as we use the ChatBlazer software to provide real time interactions with our customers.

    You don't specify what kind of "problems" you or your customers encounter.

     

    Can you reproduce any of these problems?  If so, do they go away if you revert to the previous Flash Player version?

    As we are not the developers of ChatBlazer, I can not state what the exact problem is. All I can tell you is the symptoms. On Windows, we just see a black screen where the Flash app should be. On Mac, the title screen is shown, it looks like it's doing some loading in the background due to a progress bar. The progress bar then stops and we are stuck on the screen.

     

    Yes, reverting back to the previous version of Flash works.

    With that new Flash Player version, can you see the Flash animation (rotating red 'f') at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ ?

     

    If yes, can you right-click on that Flash object, then under Settings disable Hardware Acceleration?

    I disabled hardware acceleration but the problem continues.

     

    I've been searhing a littler deeper. I downloaded the debug version hoping that would give me some sort of error log, but got nothing.

     

    However, after about a second of the movie loading, I get the following context menu:

     

    Movie not loaded...

    Show Redraw Regions

    Debugger

    ------

    About Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.5

     

    All three top options are disabled/greyed out. Movie not loaded is certainally something I wouldn't expect to see.

     

    Now, what's particularly interesting is that for the first couple seconds, I can get the normal context menu. Play, forward, next, etc.

     

    My guess, and that's all this is - a guess, is that the application is trying to load another swf and failing. I do know this application loads a skin file and perhaps it is dying there. I know it's finding the skin file, because an error appears when I rename it. The net view in browser (firebug or chrome developer tools) shows the skin file loading properly. I know this isn't much to go on, but it's one more data point.

     

    The whole issue might be some weird coding in the ChatBlazer app, however it's certain that this Flash upgrade isn't 100% backwards compatable.

    Archived Flash Player versions KB have wrong release date, release version number AND invalid download link. Isn't it funny?

    I have installed Adobe Flash Player version 10.3.183.5 and now any flash pages are telling me that Flash Player 9.0.0 is required.  Its almost like any webpages that use Flash in Safari think I am using an OLD version of Flash.  Any help would be appreciated.  I have tried to uninstall and reinstall without any success. 

     

    Mac 10.6.8 installed

     

    Thanks!
