Flash Player for 32 bit and 64-bit

  geedad 21:14 11 Feb 2011

New HP Pc.Windows Home Premium, Intel i5.
When starting, I have a choice of either clicking on Internet Explorer (64), or Internet Explorer.
If I choose the former, and try to access live streaming video, the screen is blank.
However, when I use Internet Explorer ( not affixed by (32),the videos are fine.
I am a bit disappointed since having purchased a "state-of-the-art" system, and now unable to use the 64-bit system, which I assumed would give me greater stability and speed when viewing streaming video.
Has anyone else come up against this?
Is Adobe updating in the near future?

You are using a 64 bit system, it's just that you need to use a 32 bit browser, on your system, to use flash player. Maybe one day Adobe might bring out a 64 bit flash player.

Thank you. Do you know what I can do with 64-bit that I can't do with 32?
Is it better for example, when authoring video files, etc?
