As I said, Flash 9 outperforms flash 10 on an older machine... but still not perfect.

I installed ttuuxxx's vlc pet and tried yim's gig with pasting the url from Video Downloadhelper and it worked much better than Gxine. Vlc however is complicated. I can tell it's going to take me a while to figure out all the settings, but since it works so well, I'm going to give it a go. I'll keep working with Gxine for .asf and .wmv which Mikeb helped me set up in a previous thread. Just want to deal with Flash for now. I still want to try abushcrafter's standalone flash pet when it's ready.

Please keep the suggestions coming. It's improved, but it ain't perfect.

Question on a related issue regarding flash and old laptops:
Partially in response to Apple's war on flash, many sites are making flashfree versions of themselves that to be accessed by iphones, ipads, and some other mobile devices.

Is there any way to access these flashfree versions from a browser in puppy? (my old computer is crap, but still has better processing power than a phone . . . . I hope.) Would this help?

Likewise, any guess whether Html 5 will run better on old computers than flash?

Should do. It depends on how it is implemented in the web browser.

abushcrafter,

I installed the standalone, pointed mediaplayer connectivity toward /usr/bin/flashplayer9-release, disabled the browser flash plugin, and tried it out... nothing happened. The browser doesn't seem to prompt the standalone to open. I tried the standalone by itself by entering a flash url, and it freezes. Obviously I'm missing something. Do you have a setup procedure?

Thanks,

Eathray

Here is my test flash file: http://heilong.oceanography.ru/flash/arcanoid/

Got it working on a clean firefox3.6.3 profile/portable install. I left the flash plugin enabled.
