Default Re: Flash acceleration on Linux?

There are 2 current versions of flash:

10.2.152.27 - the vanilla Adobe flash for Linux - has Stage Video support (hardware decoding with vdpau(nvidia) and uvd2/3(ati/amd) capable cards), but disabled by default. Can be enabled by inserting

EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1

in the

/etc/adobe/mms.cfg

file.
It is unstable on nvidia cards that use the proprietary driver, if hw acceleration is enabled leads to corrupted display areas. Also it crashes a lot.

10.2.r154 - the flash plugin shipped with Chrome browser. It seems that the Stage Video is disabled for good in this one, the mms.cfg file contents are ignored.
The good is that it is very stable (well, as much as flash can be...).

And there is one test version:

11 d0 - Seems better than the 152 version, works quite good and no screen corruption is observed. But still crashes now and then. It has support for some nifty 3d capabilities (there are some adobe demos). Enabling them you need to modify the /etc/adobe/mms.cfg file like this:

EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
OverrideGPUValidation=true

Anyway, some sites will refuse to work with 11 d0 or 10.2.152 if hw acceleration is enabled.
