The only time you should take patents seriously is when you have to- end users don't, companies and other large organizations do.

Did anybody try gnash-vaapi as PLUGIN? For standalone it is useless as you can play flv with mplayer too.
Yes, it finally works. At least with this Youtube video.

If you know other websites proposing Flash HD video, preferably in 1080p, I am all ears. Thank you.
BTW, you will need a small patch in gui/gtk.cpp just after gtk_init(). Please add an XInitThreads() there...
Do you have got a precompiled plugin for lenny 32 + 64 bit?
The fix applies to the libgnashcore*.so object IIRC. So, the libgnashplugin.so won't be enough. Anyway, I rebuilt everything with NPAPI plugin on a Hardy32. Updated binaries will arrive in around 5 minutes at: http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbe...e/gnash-vaapi/
The next version will work. I am cleaning the patches. Only the GMA500 (psb) driver will be supported as IEGD has a few bugs I need to check with Intel.

Great! The missing peace is now support of video acceleration in the free drivers. I'm curious which protocoll they will use (VA APU or VDPAU or...). I'm sure they will take a good decision.
I've tried recently and could'nt get youtube or any other video site to work with vaapi with a version compiled from trunk. :/
But it's still great to have my netbook able to decode 1080p @ 50 fps videos without a hitch. And deinterlacing works now, too.
