    Hey all, new poster here but I figured I would link this to all of you new Imac owners like myself, I have the 27" imac and this new plugin made my full
    screen flash playback go from randomly skipping and such to smooth playback without any skipping at all. Check it out, hope it helps.

    Un-spankin-believable!!

    The performance jump is ENORMOUS!! Finally I can watch Youtube without having to use my chill pad and plug it into the power!

    I hope all future releases are just like this! This almost makes up for the years of carp these fools have been using to bog down our sleekmobiles....

    Told you it was Adobe's fault and nothing related to Apple.

    This will slow any move away from Flash in favor of HTML5 that was happening. Good for Adobe and the end user in the short run.

    Also seeing improvements (sometimes dramatic) with this prerelease version of Flash. This is both in Safari and in Air based apps.

    One Air app dropped from 100% to 30%, though it had a sorta cpu leak where through use it rose to 60-70%.

    Tweetdeck with one Twitter account was at 10% which is a great improvement since I last used it.

    Still going to keep using ClickToFlash though http://rentzsch.github.com/clicktoflash/ :)

    Cool

    Glad to see this is helping most of you. I have heard a lot of good response o this pre-release. It made me happy to see my new 27" imac actually display a flash video decently.

    There is still no where near the performance you will get on a pc, and it's simply because Apple won't allow Adobe access to the parts of OSX to once and for all fix the flash issue on osx. So that to me sure sounds like Apples issue, not Adobe.

    Watched a random MW2 video before the update, 30-35% CPU usage. After the update, same video, it uses 15-25. Nice.

    More Problems

    It's slightly faster for me, but has weird problems on some videos. Sometimes the video will play for a few seconds, then skip to the end. This happens in Safari and Firefox. Someone needs to fix these Flash problems. It's never ending.

    This flash has been very good for video playback, but hasn't helped Yetisports.

    Very odd update. Installed it in our family iMac, works very well on high res video on Youtube (reduced my cpu by 10% according to istat) but my nephew tells me that performance got worse when playing flash games in Facebooks like Restaurant City and Farmville.

    Not a big change here on an early 2007 MacBook. Safari's using 30% CPU; Flash Player Plugin is at 70% with the 1080p HD YouTube video. Bottom line: CPU temp spikes and fans still go to the max. :(

    Hello guys - anybody else recently updated to this? Sometimes I get a bit chuppy videos on youtube. Other than that my imac handles HD video perefectly both from Apple.com as well other sites. Should I upgrade? is there a risk that it might make it worse?

    Thanks
