Here is the link.
Does anyone know if the GPU acceleration is working in Linux yet? or is it just windows?

won't work, wine does not map DXVA to VDPAU (now?)

I'm not so sure it uses DxVA... I think it's CUDA or OpenCL... Which means it should eventually work in Linux...

From the release notes:

Quote:
In Flash Player 10.1, H.264 hardware acceleration is not supported under Linux and Mac OS. Linux currently lacks a developed standard API that supports H.264 hardware video decoding, and Mac OS X does not expose access to the required APIs. We will continue to evaluate adding the feature to Linux and Mac OS in future releases.
So, is there any realistic hope of H.264 acceleration ever showing up under Linux? This sounds like a more polite way of saying "we don't care."

Flash sucks. I can't wait for YouTube and the other video sites to do HTML5 video.

YouTube's flash app just streams *.mp4 files from Google servers anyways ...

I know, but its too much of a hassle to download every YouTube video I want to see and play it with (S)mplayer.

Thumbs down Re: Adobe Flash 10.1 beta out!

Besides the Linux version not support GPU acceleration, Adobe is unable to provide a 64 bit version of the new flash player...

It's amazing how slow Adobe Flash development is .

VDPAU wouldn't be very suitable anyway. As of today, it only supports the decoding of one video at a time.

Replying to this post only, on this forum there are always at least 3 flash animations. Which one would you decode ? how would Flash knows which one is best to decode in hardware?

That restriction is going to be lifted in the next release, unless there's some major problem found at the last minute.

Do all of those use h.264 video? For the ones with play buttons, I would hope that the implementation deferred allocating the VDPAU device until you click play.
