    I re-opened the hd5 bug many weeks ago mentioning explicitly this Flash work. Yes, it was closed as "won't fix". However, the bug is now scheduled to be *reproduced* around 2011. i.e. no schedule to get it fixed yet. Though, someone kind enough in engineering may probably look at it in his spare time and get the thing fixed soon? Who knows... Besides, two other bug fixes (well, one bug fix and one very small feature impl, which is almost already implemented) are needed, AFAICS.

    BTW, may an hd 6 user be kind enough to check the xvba-video workaround works for him?

    Netbook results for this Flash video acceleration on a netbook being published tomorrow to show the differences when it comes to CPU usage / GPU usage / power consumption / etc.

    OK, did some more testing. Multimonitor mode works just fine with firefox. With chromium full screen seems to be the size of monitor on which chromium was started. Can somebody confirm? And one previously mentioned - is there any way of not turing off full screen when clicking on secondary screen?

    Just throwing out ideas, what Adobe considers "proper full-screen support in multi-monitor configurations" I have no idea. This is adobe we are talking about after all and they have a different definition of what "proper" is a lot of the time.

    Anyways here is what the CPU usage looks like on a 8200 IGP board with a AMD 4200+ locked in at 600 Mhz.

    proper full-screen support in multi-monitor configurations, and native support for custom mouse cursors
    Or maybe I'm missing something? Like explicit resolution in xorg.conf instead of nvidia-auto-select?

    Not sure, you might have to have your displays running at the same resolution first.

    yay, got 32-bit libvdpau and acceleration is working, but still, 2 questions:
    1. How this multi-monitor mode should be working? I got primary monitor 1680x1050 and secondary 1920x1080 and going full screen on youtube on secondary monitor makes it first monitor size and the rest is black.
    2. Clicking on secondary monitor makes full screen turn off.
    I'm using twinview.

    I'm using gentoo, so i got multilib useflag for nvidia-drivers and it installs compatibility libs in /usr/lib32:

    Code:
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      28 12-02 01:22 /usr/lib32/libvdpau_nvidia.so -> libvdpau_nvidia.so.260.19.26
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      28 12-02 01:22 /usr/lib32/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 -> libvdpau_nvidia.so.260.19.26
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1715132 12-02 01:22 /usr/lib32/libvdpau_nvidia.so.260.19.26
    But there is no compat libs for vdpau. I tried create symlinks directly to nvidia libs, but with no effect. I guess I must build it manually? There is no multilib useflag for libvdpau

    I cannot make it work on amd64. I got libvdpau-0.4.1 and the newest nvidia-drivers-260.19.26. Shouldn't I have 32-bit version of libvdpau? I got "undefined video rendering" in debug information on youtube and high cpu usage (about 50% - nvidia quadro 570M)
