Ordinarily I don’t wander off-topic here, but I was checking out the Flash plugin for Crux under Firefox, and tested it against a video on the BBC News Web site. Obligatory screenshot follows:
Perhaps advertising for a new car isn’t exactly … apropos when we’re talking about possibly 10,000 people dying in a storm? Maybe the BBC should rethink its advertising approach on that point.
Otherwise the Flash plugin works great. On Tombuntu’s suggestion, I might hunt down swfdec next, and see if it will go. I think I’ll try a different video source this time though.
