Default Opera on FreeBSD

Hi to all

After many years as a of mozilla/firefox user, I decided to try Opera - I have installed the new Opera 9.50 ( native FreeBSD 7.0 amd64) and I want to enable the flash plugin.

After the installation of the Opera, I did 'about: plugins" and I was surprised to seeing all the plugins that my firefox used!!

Among them, there was also the flash plugin ( linux flashplugin 7) listed as shown below:

Code:
Shockwave Flash

Shockwave Flashapplication/futuresplash	spl
application/x-shockwave-flash	swf
I browsed many flash-equipped web sites with success, but when I visited Youtube it hanged very badly!!!!

Do you have any suggestions please?
Thanks

Do not use flash plugin at all for viewing videos. For example you can use youtube-dl and mplayer/vlc/xine to view them. If you need flash for games and for other sites/media (designed for idiots) go for windows. (use wine 1.0 on FreeBSD)

Try gnash as plugin (well it works somehow with konqueror) ....

FYI, I am using linux-flushplugin 7 with my native firefox and I didn't had any problems at all.

He said he's using amd64, and last I checked wine was not working for FreeBSD/amd64.

Really, could you play recent flash games or ones which requires newest flash version.

Opera, had and still have some problems with flash on some Linux distributions. I actually never managed any (flash, java) plugin to work with Opera. Opera always crashed.

Because Opera is closed source it is very hard to help you in any way.
Instead you may seek/ask help on opera own site.

Nonsense, In fact, it is harder to help people with firefox because it is such a big mess ... It is the Linux of browsers.

In that case he should really ask for help opera people because amd64 build for FreeBSD of opera comes just recently.

wine is limited to i386 in same way as linux abi support is limited to i386. I do not know how much COMPAT_IA32 can help in wine case.
