    Phoronix: Adobe's Flash Video Acceleration For Linux Works Well

    There is the first beta release of the Adobe 10.2 Flash Player now available for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, and Linux platforms that brings a variety of improvements since the Flash Player 10.1 release from earlier this year. For Linux users this Adobe Flash update is quite important since it finally delivers GPU-based video acceleration support via their new Stage Video technology that is now supported on all platforms. Adobe's Stage Video offloads the entire video process to the GPU and in this article are some initial tests illustrating the benefits of this Flash update for Linux users.

    Very prone to crashing... as usual, worst software ever.

      vdpau > vaapi > xvba

      HI

      First my english really not well

      Flash 10.2 > vdpau > vaapi > xvba radeon hd 4### & hd 5###
      is this possible?
      I thing this could work by reason of libva (VA API extensions for VDPAU)
      and amd and Splitted Desktop collaborating in XvBA back-end for vaapi.
      But I can t test this because i have not an amd graphic card
      can somebody test this?

        Phoronix could offer us another test, but this time on an Intel IGP based netbook.
        Several persons like myself have reported much improved performance on Intel IGP desktops.

          Hmm on GeForce 8400 GS (vdpau ompatible) I dont see any big difference. Still very high cpu usage on 720p video... maybe 10.2 works with vdpau only for newer cards?

            More then likely your missing libs if you're running a 64-bit os.

                Ahh, we had a few people with Ubuntu in the chat last night having issues with it. Might be distro specific then.

                  Throwing in some kind of power usage graph could be nice

                    You didn't read all of the pages or you missed it.

                      Well the vdpau accelleration does not really like lenny based systems. iceweasel 3.0.x has extreme rendering problems, firefox 4 too (a bit less) and chrome also. You can even enforce a crash when you watch a 1080p movie with youtube and switch a few times between fullscreen and normal. It usually crashes when you hit X in the lower right corner. Btw. you can disable vdpau usage with a simple binary hack:

                      sed -i s/libvdpau/libvdpax/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

                      This script will install it in that place:

                      wget -qO- http://kanotix.com/files/install-flash10-local.sh|sh

                        Guys,
                        I know that this question is might be stupid ...
                        And I confess that i have not performed any research recently prior to asking this question.
                        Is there any way to get HW accelerated video in general and Flash specifically on i3 powered notebook ?

                          it's for nvidia. it's only for binary blobs. it's only 32 bits. it crashes. is it really a good news?
                          I mean, it's better than nothing, but we'd like a little much. After all, as Adobe has not to care about Apple anymore, they have time to invest on Linux platform.

                            Some crashes seem to be nvidia driver problems, lets see when there is a fixed driver...

                              Does Gallium have separate state trackers for VDPAU, XvMC, and VA-API, or does it just try to pick the best tool for the job depending on GPU?
