Default FreeBSD supports FLASH 14 via pipelight

I`m surprised that nobody mentioned pipelight, apparently I could use it to add silverlight, flash 14 and shockwave on freebsd.

portmaster /usr/ports/emulators/pipelight

pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins

pipelight-plugin --enable flash

That gives you Adobe Flash 14.

It seems to be a wine wrapper:

Pipelight uses a patched wine version to provide a windows environment to the plugins, but you do not need to worry about this as Pipelight will take care of installing, configuring and updating all supported plugins. From the perspective of the browser these plugins will behave just like any other normal Linux plugin after you have enabled them.

Yes it is, there were no other way to use Flash 14, npwrapper gives flash 11 and that`s old.

I think soon we`ll have linux epoll in freebsd, there is a patch from 2007 and it was recently updated and committed to freebsd tree but somehow it was reversed

http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/head/...pathrev=255672

That would be really useful.

Flash 11 is the last version of Flash to be released on Linux, the Adobe site says:

NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.
So improved Linux compatibility will give you nothing Flashplayer-wise

Actually with flash 11 sometimes youtube videos were not playing, after upgrade to flash 14, this never happened again, html5 was so slow.
