              Will that shitty blob allow me to use my intel HD card for decoding, encoding and XBMC?
              Are flash videos still freezing?
              Tested 1/2 year ago.

              2) newer had any of this problems.
              as for choppy scrolling in Firefox check if you have smooth scrollinh enabled
              3) try changing video output to OpenGL. everithing works fine with it here on 3 different cards (HD 5570, HD 6570, HD 7750)

                I managed to fix all the problems:

                The choppy sound was due to some intel steep energy stuff on the bios

                I switched the connection of my monitors and now they work ok (catalyst remember the positions, and resolutions).

                I use the flickering option on amd catalyst center, plus, on ccsm on workarounds I checked the option "Fix screen updates in XGL with fglrx" and now it works ok (no flickering + smooth desktop).

                To-do: tested amnesia demo, and couldn't make it work on the first desktop without deactivating the second one.

                Unredirect Fullscreen Windows have a bug in 12.04 which is a shame since it really kills performance on games.

                  still not working on hybrid graphics

                  yes this is still crap for hybrids. Though I was not able to run X after installation (dv6 hybrid intel / amd hd 4650) there is one improvement ( compare to one year ago last time I tried ): now the UN-installation work properly and you don't have to fight one hour to get a clean Xserver back. That's better than nothing.

                    @pixo:

                    Have a look here:
                    http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=116996

                    Everything rock solid and stable. For htpc, AMD (Fusion) finally is a really good solution. But yeah, we are waiting for month now on AMD to update their amdxvba.h, so that we can support mpeg-2 and h264@high level 5.1.

                    For features missing, in order to be able to compete with nvidia in the xbmc/htpc world, see: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=448 (also unrecognized by amd).
