I can't comment on stuff like the new video support, but what really drives me nuts is that Flash player performance on Mac really sucks. Big time.

I'm running Flash on Mac OS X 10.5 by now, using this software version with Safari 3.0 and the Powerflasher Flash benchmark.

Funny thing: I get better scores on Mac if I run the tests through Parallels Desktop and Windows XP. In fact, the Mac scores about 1950-2000 points on my machine, with Leopard and this plugin giving me slightly better results. However, running Windows through Parallels scored 2150 with Tiger, and gives me an awesome 3000 points with Leopard.

Seriously, Adobe f*** this up.

Nothing to say against iTunes plugins, I downloaded the small zip-file which unfolded easily. Inside, you'll find the plugin plus a small readme text file. Installation is as easy as dropping the plugin into the iTunes plugins folder, however I'd expect this to be scripted if not available as a standard installer. That an "3" for "ease of use", as far as installation is concerned.

After an iTunes restart the plugin appears in the list. My iTunes crashed when I tried to change the color values in the plugin options, so I stopped trying that and gave it a "2" for stability. The plugin display is somewhat boring, surely it's just supposed to draw EQ bars on the screen, but it does it in a C64-ish way, with just some flickering box frames. No OpenGL, no colorful experience, no innovative ideas... hat's why I gave it a "2" for "value". Since you can't do much more with it, it's got a "2" for features, too.

All in all, it's kinda useless, unless you like to stare at some dancing grey boxes. Personally, I don't.
