Default Re: does flash player hardware mode work?

You can tell whether hardware acceleration is enabled by seeing if the CPU load is mostly on the Firefox or Xorg process.

Flash won't use hardware acceleration if a compositing window manager is active. Even after killing it, I'm fairly sure the newest 64-bit Flash alpha doesn't use acceleration on my 7900 GS or GTX 260.
