    Phoronix: Gnash 0.8.8 Has VA-API, Claims 100% YouTube Compatibility

    As of late the open-source Lightspark Flash Player has been making great progress with features like a LLVM-using JIT engine, out-of-process plug-in support for Firefox, and rendering improvements, the Gnash project that's partially supported by the Free Software Foundation continues to advance too...

    True, I guess I mean to say that it is a promising flash alternative.

    I used to use it, too, but still, for some videos you have to have flash enabled browser. Plus, webm technology isn't yet mature enough for everyday use, for I had some problems and glitches, minor, but big enough to fall back to flash, after all.

    Thanks, blindfrog, now working in Opera, too.

    But for me, gnash is still a no-go in a terms of processor power. And I wont buy a new quad core processor just to be able to play YouTube videos. Lightspark does a great job here, my good ol' Prescott 2.4 GHz handles very well flash videos and sites (performance is a lot better than with the Adobe's plugin). Since I was waiting long time for flash OS alternative, well, what a heck, I'll wait a bit more until Lightspark polishes out.

    Thanks. I was having this issue in Chromium, but not in Firefox.

    Epic! Thanks!

    And another piece of closed source gets eliminated from the Linux desktop!

    Thanks, but I use either Opera or something KHTML based.

    I find that lightspark (compiled from git) is better than Gnash, but video controls on YouTube are screwed. Well, still waiting for the savior...
