How about your CPU usage? I enabled config option, got "accelerated video rendering" on youtube, video is smooth, no VSYNC problems but CPU usage is much higher than with previous version. I'm on 64-bit system and browser with nspluginwrapper.

Tested on my desktop (Slackware 13.1 32 bit) with GeForce 8400GS, AMD64 AthlonX2 (dual core).
YouTube HD video 720p: CPU usage 8% !!!!

Same CPU usage on my laptop (Slackware 13.1 32 bit) with GeForce GT 320M, Intel Core i5 (quad core).

Very impressive!

Hi guys, what is this all about here? I don't want to read the entire thread, so:

32bit version of 10.2 using nspluginwrapper in Ubuntu 10.10 with the mms.cfg line and seemingly no hardware acceleration. CPU sky high, YouTube showing 'undefined video rendering'.

EDIT: The Big Buck Bunny test video on the url below shows 'Stage Video Running = True' so it seems to be working, cpu 50-60%. Same video on YouTube, 98%.

I still cannot get VDPAU accelerated flash video with adobe flash player 10.2 r154: even though my mplayer accelerates H.264 video perfectly (I have 8800GT GPU).

I do have /etc/adobe/mms.cfg file which contains:
Code:
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
strace shows that Firefox(adobe player) opens this file:
Code:
22554 open("/etc/adobe/mms.cfg", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 71
but libvdpau.so is never loaded.

P.S. It turns out adobe flash player 10.2 r154 has some bug which prevents VPDAU from working either in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Sigh.

I've tried several videos from youtube, the same for which VDPAU acceleration in flash player 10.2r152 works.

YouTube doesn't work for me either, have you tried the Adobe ones?

Guys, Google Chrome has a bundled plugin (r154) that seemingly has hardware acceleration disabled and cannot be enabled by the mms.cfg file.

This is a good thing because on vdpau capable cards the 10.2 152 plugin version leads to display corruption regardless if you enable or disable hardware acceleration.
On some sites (youtube) you do get hardware decoding for HD content with the 152, but many sites have problem with this new plugin if hardware decoding is enabled. So this version creates more problems than it solves in this form.

If you want the 152 version with hardware decoding in Google Chrome, download it from Adobes site, put it in the $HOME/.mozilla/plugins/ folder, disable the built in plugin in Chrome and restart the browser (you will need the mms.cfg file modification too).

BTW you can use the r154 from Google Chrome in any browser, just link the /opt/google/chrome/libcgflashplayer.so file to ~/.mozilla/plugins/ folder.

I've already figured that out, the question is why they disabled hardware acceleration.
