Adobe Flash Player 11 beta 1 is out

Please, test it against known bugs, I don't have the ability to do it now.

I get "software video rendering/accelerated video decoding" with the new Flash Player 11 beta 1 in Firefox 5.0 on openSUSE 11.4 64bit, with NVIDIA 280.04 driver, with "EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1" and "OverrideGPUValidation=true" in mms.cfg.

The CPU is 5 years old and almost always at 100% depending on the video, but playback is way smoother than before. 720p is OK, 1080p is a bit slow.

Any tips on how to enable HW video rendering?

It's probably because Adobe has so much problems with the "presentation" part of VDPAU that they've turned it off for now, so we only get the "decode" part of it.

Yep, probably you're right. The same with 32-bit?

Yes. Hardware decoding, software rendering - 55% of 1 CPU on dual core Athlon II 250.
The previous versions did 10-20% with the same youtube clip (Big Buck Bunny 1080p).

But the overlay bugs are gone it seems. And this is still better than the 100%+ CPU without any acceleration.

Note that to measure accurate CPU usage of the playback, you MUST wait to finish caching - caching is a huge CPU resource eater on flash it seems.

PS. On some sites the videos are "pixelated" with flash 11.

There's a perfectly good workaround for the lack of hardware-accelerated video rendering. Just right-click on the video and choose "Pop Out." That launches the video in a pop-up window, which is sized (by default) to the video's native size. You can drag the sides of that window to fill the whole screen, and the video will play at full frame rate.

I tested it with this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkgK8eUdpAo

Right-clicking on it selecting "Show Video Info" gives me "software video rendering, accelerated video decoding." Setting the resolution to 720p and playing it gives me a frame rate of 30fps with no dropped frames. If I use the "Full Screen" button at the bottom right, then the frame rate drops to 19fps (again, with no dropped frames). HOWEVER, if I instead pop it out and then drag the resulting pop-out window to almost fill the screen, then it plays at 30fps while filling as much of the screen as I want it to.

Use Big Buck Bunny @ 1080p for testing:

BTW really there are no big issues with videos up to 720p. At 1080 it gets interesting because that needs much more decoding muscle than 720p. 720p should work on any decent computer and decent internet connection without issues.

Hardware decoding = blocky pixelated video in YouTube.

Enabling acceleration = after 1 day use I get browser crashes, then Xid errors when I start a game (+ artifacts like stains on walls and jumping dots, looks like broken memory on graphics card, with time I'd get better stuff). There goes my 2 months uptime :/

Adobe Flash Player 11 beta 1 and NVIDIA drivers 280.04 have fixed all the issues listed in this thread.

Thank you, NVIDIA and Adobe.

This thread can now be safely closed.

Those are beta drivers and beta flash player. Its not over until te stable ones work.
The flash player 11 beta 1 has no overlay issues on 275 drivers too.

And most videos look pixelated and have tearing with the 11 beta flash - this doesnt happen with the 10.3 player version. Anyway the best working flash is still the google supplied one.

Disabling features != fixing things.
