The "one-or-all" tests are typed up a couple of times each week here... if
a problem occurs in all situations, then that's different than if it only
occurs in some situations. If it happens regardless of browser you know
it's not a browser issue, if it happens regardless of site you know it's
not a site issue, if it happens regardless of SWF you know it's not a SWF
issue... changing one part of the problem at a time lets you find out what
the actual problem is.

When you install the Player there's a test page right there to see if
things went normally.

Sorry, not sure what may be intended to be asked here.

No change from last week... current version is 4 and I haven't seen an
estimated date published yet. Info I have is what's on the website, sorry.
