    Help with Plash player 10,3,162,29.


      Help with Plash player 10,3,162,29.e


      I need some help with Flash Player 10,3,162,29.
      I'm able to play youtube videos and most prerecorded videos.
      However,with streams in realtime,like news sites,live sporting events and live webcam feeds,
      they play fine for about a minute or 2 then the feed just stops (the player does not crash or close or give me an error).
      I'm using 64bit Ubuntu 10.10 maverick ,in both KDE & Gnome.
      This happens with all browsers I have tried also,from the recent release of Chrome to FireFox4.
      I have also tried other versions of flash player with only the same results (even 32bit versions).
      I also tried the newest release of flash aid.
      I've updated my drivers.
      I have also disablded hardware acceleration and also tried it with it enablded.
      Nothing seems to work.


      Below is a exapmle of a recorded video that stops after about 2 minutes.
      ( http://bcove.me/fz8lfrx9 )
      I was able to watch the video fine on a 10 year old Toshiba latop running windows 98,
      with very little ram.So I know the issue is not on their side...


      So,what would cause this issue?
      My internet connection is fine & very stable.
      The desk top PC I'm on is a 64 bit system less then a year old and has 16GB of ram ,so I know it isnt a resource issue.


      Thank you for reading.

          Hi, The Flash Player 10.3 has been updated, see here. http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10-3.html   


          Also you may want to use the Uninstaller before Installing that new version. See Uninstallation at the bottom of the article.


          I'm not familiar with Linux so just be sure to read the system requirements/browsers etc.


          Keep in mind this is still in beta and it's not a  shipped version. There may be info within the Release notes also.

            Thaks,I did exactly what you said....
            The updated version you linked me to,still has the same issue.
            However,now it will not even play half of the of live stream media sites I had visited.

            (including the video link in my previous post-that video/player wont even load now)
            The version I had before would play them,but It would stop after 2minutes.
            Nor do flash games work with the version you linked me to now. LOL
            I think we just went backwards regarding this issue....

            I have down graded back to the earlier version I was using before....stil hoping for a solution regarding live streams.


            It seems what the player is doing is...

            Playing everything for the most part,but after a minute or so it stops,mainly on live streams that are broadcasted in real time.

            For some reason it thinks the stream ends,but it really doesnt.

              Hi, I'm sorry that didn't improve things for you. Normally updates have new features and contain improvements as they have had feed back from those testing this beta.


              Even tho you have a 64bit system, you need to use the 32bit browser, which I'm sure you are aware of. Just thot I'd mention that.


              It sounds as if the streaming is coming down faster than can be handled. Have you tried to pause it to see if that helps? Do you see if it is buffering? I have a radio station I stream to and for some reason it buffers for quite some time, like 5-7 minutes. I have learned just to let it and then it will start working correctly.


              I checked that site you linked to and it played fine for me along with the audio. I use XP/SP3 and have the latest Flash Player version using IE.


              One thing I noticed is that you are experiencing this with all browsers. This indicates to me that there is something common that is causing a conflict. Since Flash Player works thru the browser, then anything Installed into the browser(s) is either a + or a -. You may want to look into that possibility.


              A Setting perhaps needs adjusted.


              Have you reviewed the Troubleshooting Guide? I don't know if that would be helpful but there may be something you would see. http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/153/tn_15397.html  Also a couple of links that may help.

              That would be all that I would have since I am sort of lost when it comes to Linux.

                You are better advised if you post problems and question concerning FP beta versions in the beta forums, where the developers are.
