    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.

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

        Changing resolution is not a solution, I checked with bigger screen set as primary and fullscreen is really fullscreen, but on secondary monitor video is cropped, so I don't see:
        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?

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

            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.

              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?

                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.

                  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?

                    The decoding parts of VA-API and VDPAU map just fine to CrystalHD and would provide the same functionality without introducing yet another API. The presentation parts obviously don't apply to CrystalHD. However, a generic OpenGL-based implementation is possible. No "magic" is needed in any case.

                      Well vdpau or not, this flash player version is much faster on my notebook (which has neither vdpau nor vaapi support, only xvmc)
