Does it also happen to you?When I publish a movie,in Mac,it seams to lose around 8 fps.If I open safari,the frame rate seems right,but when I publish a movie locally, or in firefox, that thing happens.
nope. Not me. I got a mac. But girls don’t like my mac. So I keep it to myself. And when I do that, the frames per second seems to be just fine.
Hey Zenor, what’s the spec of your Mac, and what Flash player do you have?
I agree that Flash Player on the Mac has been historically slower than the PC version. It’s much improved with Flash Player 9 on Leopard however so if you have a new(er) Mac, you shouldn’t really be experiencing any major issues. It was really bad a few years ago when Flash Player 7 and 8 were first launched. Adobe (and previously Macromedia) never really gave an honest answer why there was such a noticeable performance difference on the Mac. I imagine part of the reason is that Flash Player is first and foremost a Windows product ported over to the Mac and some areas of performance get lost in translation.
So just to clarify, on the Mac, it really could depend on your machine spec, Flash Player version, and which browser you are running.
One thing you could try, is the beta version of Flash Player 10 for Mac. It might give you the performance boost you’re looking for (or expect!).
Download Flash Player 10 from Adobe Important: All users should uninstall any currently installed Flash Player before installing the latest beta.
Well it seems that installing flash player 10 fixed the problem when I am browsing in firefox.So that’s great! Although,when I publish my flash movie inside flash,I still miss some fps. I am using a 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GB ram. Thanks Scott!
Can you verify if your browser is using the same version as your standalone flash player.
It seems like your browser is running the newest version of flash player, while your standalone flash player is an older version.
Browser version: 10. Standalone: 9.0.45.
But I just installed the beta one for browsing.I had version 9 before.
Browser version: 10. Standalone: 9.0.45. But I just installed the beta one for browsing.I had version 9 before.
You probably had 9.0.124 on your browser (which is a lot newer than 9.0.45). Go to Adobe’s website and download the newest standalone (9.0.124) and see if it improves performance.
