Not that I'm particularly interested in flash or vdpau, but what is *really* interesting is that GNASH supports vdpau....

Yep. The open source clone of flash supports video decode acceleration, but the official one is trailing behind.

Regardless of that, as I've been saying in various different places over the last decade, flash REALLY needs to DIE.

Adobe has been uttering some threats of building a flash plugin for Android. It was supposed to be out in something like October. Good thing that they are completely retarded and take the better part of a decade to add alpha support for any new platform.
