    You must be kidding! It's more like the usual release quality of Adobe Flash Player for linux.

      Great, so now rather than just puking and pegging one core, it will puke and peg ALL the cores. That really seems like what we need most of all.

        I don't have any problems with flash. The solution to achieve this is very simple: just remove it from your system. Opera with HTML5 videos works great in YouTube, for other sites there are various extensions to download videos. Since I've removed flash, I don't experience any more X crashes that used to bother me while I browse internet.

          How do you watch YouTube? I don't see anything related to HTML5 there.

            It crashes hard

            Well, I tried it. It crashes in two stages. First it displays only black windows or totally unrecognizable video on youtube. Second, when I try reloading the page the plugin crashes. Reloading after that repeats the cycle.

            Weird result and not at all usable.

            I hope they fix the bugs fast, the new features seem interesting.

            Now on all these different acceleration techniques, why can't we have one, say VA-API (that one is open) and have backends for it in terms of all the others on the different hardware: So base VA-API on vdpau on nvidia, base VA-API on XvBA on ati, etc. And for the open drivers (nouveau, radeon, intel) just implement only va-api.

                And Chrome and Firefox. Full win, provided you have a fast enough CPU.

                  Doesn't work for me. YT continues to use Flash for the videos, even though I use FF 7.0.1 and that page says that the video tag and WebM are supported.

                    It is getting easier to get by entirely without flash.
                    But just an FYI to some people who don't get it (pejakm).... videos are NOT the part of flash you can't get by without. There are a lot of websites that use flash for navigation or other essential features. Videos can easily be done without -- no big deal.

                    Also pejakm: I've never seen a flash crash take down X. Firefox for sure, but that's as far as it makes it. If given multiple cores though, it could potentially peg them all and make it a miserable operation to kill it.

                        Then what's the point? I need to be able to watch the videos I want. Uninstalling Flash would make that impossible.

                            It's not like HTML5 can suddenly make stupid videos stand out as humanity's greatest achievements.

                              Well, you can also use XBMC to browse and watch YouTube videos, 1080p works like a charm, even without HW acceleration. But of course it depends on how you use YouTube if it's something for you.

                                Use something like Flashvideoreplacer or Youtube-dl (or you can keep trying to run HD videos in the flash plugin, but good luck with that...).

                                LOL, I can see RealNC (et al) 10 years from now... "Flash 111.1 just came out, but the plugin won't play my Super Ultra HD videos, even on my 512-core 3.0 THz system!"
