Exclamation VDPAU issues with Flash 10,1,102,65, Firefox 3.6.13, Ubuntu 10.10,NV 270.18

I am having an issue while using websites streaming video such as Discovery.ca and History.ca. While using VDPAU, every five to ten minutes the video locks but the audio remain's playing. The video in about 15-30 seconds will resume playing properly. I have noticed similar issues to this while also using ProjectM, the music visualization program which uses Milkdrop presets. The difference in ProjectM however, is that audio will occasionally stutter during the 15-30 second wait for the video to resume. So far I have only ever seen this issue with the new 270.18 beta driver. My video cards are 3 GTX 480 not in SLI mode, because of the lock up issues when SLI is enabled. Another issue is if I enabled the largest textures in ProjectM (8192), the computer will also lock. This largest texture size has never worked properly for me with any Nvidia card or driver. Would be nice to get this looked into as well. I will try to get another bug report with this issue as well. Thx

Flash 10.1 does NOT use VDPAU.
Flash 10.2 (the current release candidate) does and does it badly (at least on my 8200).

See also http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FP-6079
(latest 10.2 release candidate 10.2.152.14 does not support VDPAU, earlier ones like 10.2.151.49 do.)

Strange, the GPU is always ~5-10% when playing flash with firefox . Must be a flash issue. Thanks for the heads up I dont know if I even want to try VDPAU in flash.
