GPU acceleration for Flash player under Linux

1080p flash video with GPU acceleration

All users of HTPC based on Atom processor and nVidia Ion graphics should know the GPU acceleration works pretty well for HD movies and doesn’t work for Flash video at all. That’s really bad because more and more online services stream 1080p video. But likely situation is changed and Linux users can utilize GPU power for Flash video decoding with new Adobe Flash Player 10.2. Just download and install it. Firefox should start using it immediately. Chrome users should do a simple manual configuration – type about:plugins in the address bar to open config page, press button Details, find option Flash, disable stock player version and enable new one. That’s it. Now you may enjoy HD video from Youtube or some other online strimming service.
