    probably not the best place to start this topic but here goes nothing.

    I've installed Shiretoko (Firefox 3.5.1 x64) and i cant watch youporn(jokin`) since adobe is planning since xp x64 to release a 64bit flash player.. pasted 5 years and wow they did released a linux version for x64.. so useless for me
    I know that some time ago i've found an alternative plugin (developed by 3rd parties) that could play flash content in a x64 browser, problem is i dont remember its name or how ive found it.

    so question is, you know any way to make flash.ocx to work on x64 browser? or you know any other plugin that can play flash content in 64bit browser?

    ah and p.s. microsoft sucks big time. they develop x64 os , x64 browser but 64bit silverlight is not one of their priorities.. its like givin` u a bowl of soup and a toothpick to eat it

    IFAIK, there's no flash player for 64bit Windows yet. And 32bit component can't be used with 64bit programs, like 64bit directshow decoders can't be used with 32bit players and vice-versa.

    Yeah, Microsoft sucks. THat's why you're using their brand new OS.

    Think, please. Microsoft does not = Adobe. It is Adobe's prerogative to release 64bit flash, and it may not be as simple as you think.

    At any rate, it's wiser for them to support the mainstream audience of x86 users right now.

    I'm sure there's a way to use 32bit flash in a 64bit browser. How else can companies like HP include 64bit Vista for mainstream users who want to use YouTube?

    I'd look into that. I'm almost positive there's a way.

    @LiquidSolstice yes m$ sux sometimes. why ? whats the point in developing a 64bit browser (IE 64bit) and not develop silverlight 64bit? ( i didnt said m$ sux adobe arent able to make 64bit flash, just coz i cant use silverlight on ie x64) i mean both are their products .. anyway i dont wanna make this a discussion about how and why m$ sux @ some things.
    On the other hand if you find out how i can use 32 bit flash in 64bit browser pls let me know and thx for this

    Experience tells me that the only case to use a x64 OS is when you have 4GB+ of ram.
    64bit computing is still not ready to home users. Most of the apps works in 32bit emulation in 64bit OSes.

    i have 8 gb ram so 64bit os is the logical choice. and about 64bit browser well its faster than the 32bit one

    Firefox is not native x64 anyway and Mozilla said they will not be making a AMD64 version of firefox anytime soon either. Everyone wants a 64 bit version of program xyz, then neglects to say why they need a non-emulated version of said program.

    There is, now. Codename is Shiretoko. And Firefox x64 is on Linux for a long time.

    It's pretty obvious you don't suffer any variant of OCD wich is common between computer freaks. You need 64 bit versions installed in your 64 bits OS because harmony is paramount in life.

    Ain't Firefox3.x code name Minefield, and 64bit 3.5 ones are Shiretoko?

    Edit: nvm get it now, Minefield are trunk builds, Shiretoko is a codename for FF3.5.
