    From what I've read on Flash Player 11's GPU acceleration on Linux and why it doesn't function within the betas, Adobe will be disabling VDPAU for the final release. Adobe faults bad Linux drivers, and appears to be abandoning GPU acceleration until driver issues are resolved.

    Hi marduk667,

    This is not a bug. We disabled GPU acceleration with StageVideo and Stage3D on Linux because of drivers issues on the Linux platform.

    Until the situation improves on Linux (drivers consistency and bugs), there is not much we can do.

    We will keep trying to bring the best experience on Linux, but we had to take this decision for now.

    Hi Dennis,

    Agreed, this should be stated in the release notes and will be fixed.

    I know it sounds frustrating, but the situation is really bad with Linux drivers today, not only on 3D but also for video.

    You see those VDPAU strings cause you can still force the use of GPU on Linux if you want, but this will be disabled in the final release.

    Recently, Mozilla shared the same concerns regarding HW acceleration on Linux. Even on MacOS and Windows we have to blacklist old drivers otherwise we just cannot guarantee a safe and smooth experience. Remember we need to run nicely on all browsers on many OS's, not only one platform with a specific browser.

    It was closed and a new URL given to a "new" bug tracker. Which isn't working for well over a month now.
    I've submitted a bug there : https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=newBug got an answer by mail but the bug file disappeared... and no further mail answers. Is it the one that is not working ?
    That's a strange way to handle beta testers...

    Still sticking to 10.3, when I leave a Youtube video it totally freezes the system.
    (Nvidia drivers - x64 platform - firefox 6)

    But I just discovered the flash-player-properties in the tar.gz, in a tab it says "peer-assisted networking". Never heard about that but it seems it's already functionnal in 10.3 ! how come no streaming site already uses that ?

    Simple way: RMB on YT video -> show video info.

    Because it's software rendered. Nothing changed since beta. http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...ht=#post222832

    "labs.adobe.com" seems down (just) for me.
    Anybody care to share the plugin for 64bit?

    EDIT: back now.

    Nope, flash is still not useful.

    Still fullscreen video is
    - on the wrong screen
    - in the wrong position
    - in the wrong size
    (left monitor is 1600x900, right is 1600x1200)



    Also, video rendering is software with flash 11 in fullscreen (not that it matters when it is this broken) while it is accelerated with flash 10 + nspluginwrapper.
    Of course:
    Code:
    ~ % cat /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
    #Hardware video decoding
    EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
    OverrideGPUValidation=1
    Max Racer 3D also still renders with 2-3 fps. But maybe it's because of the radeon open source driver. Somehow I doubt it though.

    "A month later was a second release candidate and now we're up to RC stage. "

    I think you mean "a second beta".

    I think your title should be "Adobe Releases Flash Player 11.0 Release Candidate 1" Rather than Beta 1
