    It looks like a 10.3 beta is available:


    I'm not sure about a link for 64-bit but I'm still searching for it.

    I haven't tried it because I use 64 bit Ubuntu. I wish they would release a current 64 bit version.

    Well it seams that 10.3 is still not working.
    As a "workaround"...

    In Opera you can

    1.Drag the tab with the flash movie to the task bar which will make it a second Opera instance.
    Then drag the window to your second monitor and maximize.

    2.Press the "+" key to "zoom-in".
    Once you zoom-in you can center on the flash movie window with the scroll bars.

    3.Press "*" to restore original settings for the page.

    You get almost fullscreen flash playback hehe...

    I hope they will fix this soon :/
    I like to watch NASA HD on ustream on my second monitor...

    Question Re: Flash 10.2 + multiple monitors - not working correctly

    Any updates on this issue...? I guess it's still not fixed out of the box? Having this problem on Kubuntu 11.10 64bit, brand new install.

    I was wondering if there is a workaround using the [System Settings>Window Behavior>Window Rules] settings?

    Re: Flash 10.2 + multiple monitors - not working correctly

    NOTE: Only for the ADOBE Flash plugin

    Hah, I'm looking for a solution for a whole other issue and keep on finding questions about this one that I've already found the answer to so I'll post what the solution I found.

    And its quite easy, does take some command line and Hex editing but the directions are GREAT!

    Heres the issue: Adobe hasn't decided to take the In Focus tag out of the Linux plugin yet. (Windows and Mac used to have the same problem years ago but they've changed the plugins for those OS's.. no clue why they haven't for Linux)

    So heres what you do:

    Goto http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/ubunt...ll-screen.html
    and scroll down to:
    Get Flash videos to remain full screen when working (clicking) in the other desktop

    I did the 2nd method of editing the Adobe Plugin using a Hex editor and it worked great! (I didn't want to deal with another plugin for Firefox). It takes longer to setup but then you don't have to worry about clicking on the Maxamize Flash icon every time you want to watch a movie.

    This worked perfectly! Thanks. If you post this solution to the following AskUbuntu question: http://askubuntu.com/questions/59328...h-does-it-work I will give you credit for the proper solution!
