Flash Fears of DRM

http://linuxhow2.com

Why Adobe needs to get their act together in better supporting Linux. With the possible inclusion of DRM in Flash, this might spell the end of Flash on Linux, and this certainly won't benefit either the Linux community or Adobe.

Adobe Pushes DRM for Flash

http://www.gnashdev.org

Now Adobe, which controls Flash and Flash Video, is trying to change that with the introduction of DRM restrictions in version 9 of its Flash Player and version 3 of its Flash Media Server software. Instead of an ordinary web download, these programs can use a proprietary, secret Adobe protocol to talk to each other, encrypting the communication and locking out non-Adobe software players and video tools. We imagine that Adobe has no illusions that this will stop copyright infringement -- any more than dozens of other DRM systems have done so -- but the introduction of encryption does give Adobe and its customers a powerful new legal weapon against competitors and ordinary users through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Flipping the Linux switch: Penguin on a (USB) stick

http://www.downloadsquad.com

Ever wish you had your whole desktop on a flash disk? You know what we mean, you take a spreadsheet up to your 'rents, and you realize that they have no program to actually open your spreadsheet with. Or maybe you hop from computer to computer in several offices, and hate the fact that every computer you work on is just different enough to make it difficult to get things done.

Ubuntu Gutsy Makes Automatix Obsolete

http://www.5thwind.com

I think anyone interested in Linux saw this NY Times article today. I agreed with the article for the mostpart except for the end where the author stated that “one challenge for Linux users is finding media players that work with encrypted music and DVDs. Ubuntu comes with a movie player, but it is not automatically configured to play copy-protected commercial DVDs.

Testing Gnash player in Ubuntu 7.10

http://tombuntu.com

Gnash is an open source player for Adobe’s Flash format. It can be used as an alternative to Adobe’s proprietary player. The upcoming Ubuntu 7.10 release includes automatic installation of either Adobe Flash or Gnash. I decided to put this feature to the test in Ubuntu 7.10 Beta.

Making Gnash: a well-deserved name?

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

Gnash is the Free Software Foundation’s alternative Adobe Flash player. Version 0.8 is the third alpha release, and frankly, it rocks! It is also one of the first projects to be covered by the GPLv3.

Rumors of new Gnash functionality exaggerated

http://www.linux.com

A free Flash viewer is one of the last major gaps in GNU/Linux desktop functionality, so last week's news that Gnash, the free Flash player, had reached the stage where it could play YouTube and Lulu.tv videos seemed too good to be true. Unfortunately, it was.

The dark art of removing the Flash plugin from Firefox in Ubuntu Linux

http://www.insidesocal.com

But how to get rid of Flash? It's not so easy. Mozilla's help pages offer instructions on how to expunge Flash from Windows and Mac OS X, but nothing on getting rid of it in Linux. It's not an installed package, so Synaptic doesn't even know it's there. Apt-get also knows nothing. Why? Because it's hidden.
