        I just tried it out with the latest crystal drivers on my Dell Mini Inspiron 1012.

        By default, it does not use hardware rendering out of the box.

        Then, following instructions found here, I put the following in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg:

        Code:
        EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
        OverrideGPUValidation=true
        The plugin will then crash when trying to play a youtube video. Firefox provides the following output:

        Code:
        Running DIL (3.22.0) Version
        DtsDeviceOpen: Opening HW in mode 0
        DtsInitialize: Ioctl failed: 10
        DtsSetupHardware: Failed from Open
        DtsAllocIoctlData Error
        Unable to detach from Dil shared memory ...
        DtsDelDilShMem:Unable get shmid ...
        dmesg shows that it is attempting to open and use the crystal hardware:

        Code:
        [304932.672979] crystalhd 0000:0b:00.0: Opening new user[0] handle
        [304953.236065] crystalhd 0000:0b:00.0: Firmware command T/O

        1c200
        It also looks like the crystal driver is not working well with totem and the gstreamer filter, as playback is jerkily, and I get the following unusual output from gstreamer:

        Code:
        [305708.254117] crystalhd 0000:0b:00.0: Opening new user[0] handle

        [305734.894186] crystalhd 0000:0b:00.0: Closing user[0] handle via ioctl with mode 1c200
        I think support for crystal hardware on linux still needs some work, both with and without flash :/

          How does flash deal with video refresh rate? xrandr?

          Subject says it all - I always wondered if or in what way flash depended on the video refresh rate. I mean, a video will always play best with its original refresh rate, yet I haven't yet seen any reference whatsoever that the player bothers with this. What's a critical issue for any video player should matter for the flash player as well. Does anyone know something about this?

              The new version sucks major. I was using the 64-bit "Square" beta before, and full-screen 720p video is working 100% perfectly with it. Not much CPU load (20%-ish), and tear-free in fullscreen and windowed. I now installed the new 11 64-bit version. Fullscreen video, regardless of resolution, is tearing like hell, CPU goes in the 90% range, and it's slow as hell. The video is so slow that audio/video gets out of sync quite fast.

              I'm back to the old Square beta and it works flawlessly again. All this on the open source radeon driver (KMS/Gallium3D).

                  I had that problem in 10.3, it disappeared after a driver update.

                    So what's with all of the tech bloggers calling this a "release" when its just a public beta?

                      "release" really doesn't specify at what stage of development a product is. Look at wine for example they had many many many many "releases" under a alpha status.

                        Got AV sync problems as well. This is so pathetic...

                          Not really, they qualify their "releases" as development or stable branch since the 1.0 release.

                            Square totally broke fullscreen for me. Clicking full screen just had no effect. Works flawlessly for me with 11, very smooth performance. I'm running the intel driver (ironlake chip)

                              Also did finally Adobe fix the memcpy bug in that has plagued Square (where there's been a patch out) ?

                                Apparently. Works here w/o patch.
