Frankenstien flash

franknfurterI begin with a compile of nodejs which for some reason desired that it remove flash from debian with a compiler required that i thought i might need but probably did not – so my fault.

So i have no flash plugin which brings me to the perverse state of html video and audio – especially stuff in translation.

The video is not flash, but h264, the subtitles are in flash.  So i switch to chrome browser with pepper flash in 64 bit linux  which kind of works if your dont mind powering off your computer every thirty minutes since it froze about then.

Even the ad industry cannot figure out this shit, some adverts just played sound, no video some did both and the warning emitted by chrome browser amount to displeasure by the rendering engine.

mallThe best advert was for a shopping mall in africa.  I think it was in africa being london zoo residents it did look a bit too sunny.  It certainly made me think.  How 1980’s malls.

The induced level of fuckup involved here made me both think and laugh.  If this is what advertising does no wonder internet advertising is in the state its in.  As to the drm requirements by the copyright brigade – lol

I still cannot install flash since the upstream source is broken [404] so although i created this monster it is interesting to see the fallout.

I am amused and disgusted for if i can see the faults and flaws of the shit advertising attempts to do then clearly there clueless.

Perhaps if i learn to play the violin* frankenstein will behave.

However an attempt to load the same site in an older version of firefox resulted in a message to piss off, and the more newer version of firefox on a virgin linux pc resulted in no sound or video also so the violin trick probably won’t work

*i joke.
