Interesting. This hasn't been the case for me at all. I'd be
interested in possibly trying it out but I don't find the
nspluginwrapper. Also I need a Java solution that works correctly at
one specific site. So far the blackdown ones don't. The sun-jre-bin
does but only emerges in the 32-bit environment again. mplayer-bin or

lightning ~ # emerge -pv nspluginwrapper netscape-flash mplayer-bin

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "nspluginwrapper".

> mplayer is just an X window that gets overlaid into the browser, so you can symlink your 32bit mplayer to /usr/bin/mplayer and it will work fine in a 64bit browser. nspluginwrapper similarly does some kind of IPC pass-thru to a 32bit plugin.. personally i'd prefer the 'broken green puzzle piece' for flash but firefox is so bloated and slow that i have to run (32bit) opera where flash just works..

Yeah. I'm using Firefox but having more trouble with it crashing lately....
