    Beause, no it isn't faster. It's still horrible as the beta 1. With horrible I mean, watching a low resolution video is not working fluently on an i5 480M@2,9GHz with HD 6550 on fglrx. Extreme tearing and large stutters. I think it renders everything in Software and draws everything to screen with no hardware acceleration whatsoever.

    Makes me wonder whether it loads some libraries dynamically on your Ubuntu or whatever you test it on.
    No. You have severe driver issues and you need to complain to AMD, or buy an NVIDIA card, for that matter. I'm certain that Flash Player isn't working with acceleration here, because I have a GeForce 6150 with no VDPAU support, a processor that's less than half of yours (TurionX2 from almost 4 years ago) and I can play 720p video smoothly (with a small frame loss, no stuttering) with my computer.

    Same here, ATI 3200HD with OSS drivers, everything is very smooth and no tearing.

    Flash is like the Internet Explorer<7, and should be killed with fire.

    I can use HTMLv5 to watch YouTube's non-Vevo shit and Soundcloud for music.

    Think of all the pointless games and adds you'll be missing...

    I'm running an i5-460m@2.53GHz and the integrated intel ironlake graphics. I can watch 720p and 1080p video perfectly smoothly, no stuttering, no tearing. sounds like some sort of ati issue. I don't believe flash has any hardware acceleration on intel either... (only on nvidia). Running fine here.

    I've run flash 11 on fedora 15 and on arch linux and they both worked the same.

    With the final the tearing and extreme cpu usage issue disappeared, however it is still much too high for just playing a video.
