Audio Delay in Flash on Linux - Fixed!

# Filed on Feb 3, 2007 by AnthonyDiSante reply

A few weeks ago, Macromedia Adobe finally released Flash Player version 9 for Linux.  This is a joyous event for anyone who uses Linux and visits Flash-based websites, because v9 fixes a long-standing bug in the Linux version of Flash Player, whereby the audio would always get out of sync with the picture on any Flash video.  The audio trailed the video by about 1-2 seconds, so any Flash video longer than half a minute or so was simply not worth watching because it was too aggravating.

Fortunately, there are virtually no worthwhile Flash-based websites in existence*, so it wasn’t necessarily a huge problem that Flash was unusable on Linux.  However, the single good use of Flash on the internet -- HomestarRunner.com -- was severely affected by this bug, since it consists entirely of Flash movies.

But no more.  I can now happily watch Strong Bad make fun of people and the sound actually keeps up with the video.  Here are a couple of great Strong Bad emails that show this in action:

*Of course, the rise of YouTube means there is now a second (semi-)worthwhile Flash website on the internet.  But Macromedia/Adobe left Linux users out in the cold on Flash v8, meaning we were stuck with the horrible buggy v7 for something like 3 years, long before YouTube came along.

I looked all over trying to find a simple cgi script.  I found that FileChucker was by far the best.  If you have issues with your hosting service's php.ini max upload size then this is the way to go.  Looking forward to future enhancements.

Thanks again for a great product and great support - beyond expectations.
– Greg S.
Thank you VERY much for all of your help.  You've really impressed me.  We have support agreements for other software that costs thousands of dollars / year (just for the support), and most of them aren't as helpful as you have been.
– Keith Y.
FileChucker is working great...  Clients love it.  Vendors love it.  We love it.
– Gerry W.
Do you know how rare it is to have a "canned" shopping cart that can easily do complex pricing options on a single item?  Basically, they don't exist!  I have looked.  Everywhere!  And the few that might even come close to CornerStore's functionality cost a fortune!

I just wanted to say that yours is the first product that I've tested so far that hasn't failed on handling uploads.  This is going to work for a print company, so they are handling nothing but large files and all the other solutions I've tried so far have not been reliable.  So far yours has been 100% successful in my tests.
– Kevin H.
You've done a wonderful job with FileChucker and UserBase, and they have made a big difference to how our website runs.
– Nicholas H.
Nice script, it's saving the day on our project.
– Aaron W.
FileChucker is helping drive the backend of several high profile entertainment sites for people like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.  We're also using it to drive backend file uploads for a multi-billion dollar banking institution.  It's a great product.  We've tried other "chucking" upload solutions with progress bars using flash and php, but nothing works as reliably as FileChucker.
– Michael W.
FileChucker is a great drop-in solution for file uploads, and worth every penny of its very reasonable cost.  Encodable's support is excellent to boot.
– Loren A.
Why didn't I just do this from the get-go?  So much easier.  Thanks for your work.  FileChucker makes my work easier.
– Dominic M.
Just one word: Fantastic.  10-minute job to plug FileChucker into my app, and it now works a treat.  It's through the hard work by people like yourselves that make my job so much easier.  Congratulations on an outstanding product... Many many thanks.
– Sean F.
The amount of customization in the program is incredible.  I was able to integrate it into my existing page layout relatively simply.  I was also able to easily customize the look/feel to match the current site.
– Jason M.
Our members think your software is fantastic...  I would recommend your software and your company to anyone.  Thanks for all your help.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
– Tommy A.
I just want to say you guys really stand alone in that you have a quality product and you provide genuine customer service.  It's sad but those qualities are seldom found separately, much less together.  Thanks again for your time and help.
– Alex S.
I just installed the demo of your product and got it up and running in no time.  I searched high and low for a decent login script and thank God I found yours.
– Adrian F.
The work, the thought and the organization you put into this app is incredible.
