Good news: the latest version is displaying Japanese very nicely. And
for the plug-in settings are saved, so I can now use flash that connects
to remote sites. Sound/video also working fine (*). (I'm using fedora
Things not working: For editable text fields there is no IME (but
copy and paste in Japanese does work). The standalone player still
refuses to let me tell it is allowed to connect out (an XML socket).
The latter is very irritating: is it working for anyone? What happens is
it pops-up to say I don't have permission to connect (both debug and
release players). When I click settings it opens up firefox with the
settings window. But they are now already set to allow the directory I'm
running from (and running it as file:// URL in firefox works). (I've
also tried explicitly allowing the swf file as well.)
What is curious is that firefox and the standalone player *are* sharing
settings. E.g. I changed the allowed local storage space in the
standalone player (by right-clicking and choosing settings) and the new
limit shows up when doing the same in the firefox plugin. And vice versa.
*: Well, except I keep getting this message on the console:
ALSA lib pcm_direct.c:1629:(snd_pcm_direct_parse_open_conf) Unknown
