Hi Rob,

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the new alpha 7.2 version of Gnash. There are still some
issues namely the 100% resource utilization on my computer (dv8000z -
AMD Turion 64, Fedora Core 6 x86_64,  2.6.18-1.2849.fc6). Some sites are
still an issue. However, it looks to me like we are on the right track.

  I think this will be a problem until one of us on buys an AMD64
machine, and works on it daily. It's very difficult for us to track down
obscure bugs on a platform none of us have. Donations of equipment are
always appreciated. :-)

I understand. However, if the obscure bug is a show stopper (for me), then it is an issue, no? :-)

This is my only machine. So, if I have to get flash gnash and nsplugin are my only options. Another user on the FedoraForum mentioned that I might see 100% CPU usage if I do not have hardware 3D acceleration. Considering that I have an ATI 200M XPress card, I do not have 3D acceleration. Is that the problem you think why OpenGL is taking up all the resource to deal with flash? Please note that nsplugin does not have that issue anymore.

I have done a review and compared with NSPlugin on my website
( Please feel free to send comments and any issues you

  Just as a question, did you also try a 32bit Gnash with nsplugin ? I'm
curious if it works any better. As you noted, sound does work, but video
doesn't yet. Working video will be in the next release, it's being
worked on in cvs, but isn't really functional yet.

I did not try the 32bit Gnash with nsplugin. I do not have the 32bit toolchain. So, I will try when I get hold of a 32bit FC6.
