Good news, everyone, Adobe has just released a preview build of 64-bit Flash Player for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.
- Video playback issues may appear on certain websites such as Hulu.com, Audi.co.uk, and nbc.com.
- Mouse interactivity in the Settings UI dialog does not work using Internet Explorer 9. Keyboard navigation works as expected. Please pardon our dust.
- Internet Explorer 9 is not yet final. As such, Adobe is continuing to work with Microsoft to resolve critical issues before the final release of Internet Explorer 9.
- This release will not receive automatic update notifications, and users will need to manually uninstall this preview before installing a standard shipping release of Flash Player

MPEG-LA, the group behind H.264 codec licensing declared Internet Broadcast AVC free from royalties; as long as web site that provides video streaming service is free as well. Or put in other words: YouTube won’t have to pay for it
Originally, LLC was planning to charge companies that rely on H.264, starting from 2016.
Thanks to competition, such as: Google’s WebM video format, this is no longer the case, as long as end users are not paying for service.
