Actually they've reintroduced 64bit support in the
new 10.2  betas and it works as well as it ever did.
ie reasonably frequent crashes, so use nspluginwrapper
and Flashblock firefox addon to whitelist the sites you
want to allow flash from :-) Works on the BBC site &
youtube which is good enough for me.

Yes that works very nicely - you can even 'yum install get_iplayer'
if you've added the rpmfusion.org repos.
