Awaited for a long time, Adobe’s Flash Player 10.1 has finally been released. It is available for Windows and Linux, but beta versions of this software are available for Macintosh (details below), Android (2.2) FroYo and Solaris.
The software provides support for H.264 video hardware decoding, so your computer will suffer less when you’re watching online streams. Unfortunately, this feature hasn’t been added to to the Mac version of the Flash Player up to now. The „Gala” edition of the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 renders hardware acceleration for H.264 video available on Mac too. Bear in mind that the „Gala” edition is only in a beta phase at the moment.(preview 2 edition was released on May 25).
Beside the support for H.264, Adobe boasts that their latest Flash Player handles better global errors, being designed for mobility and featuring expanded options for high quality media delivery, as well as globalization support.
The Adobe Flash Player is a world renown software for viewing movies or animations by using your web browser. Originally created by Macromedia in 1996, Adobe is the present developer and distributor, after they acquired their rival in 2005.
