    Default Fluent 1080p YouTube on AMD Fusion?

    Is there any way of getting fluent 1080p Youtube playback on AMD Fusion? I'm looking for a solution that preferably works on both an E-350 and E-450. I don't care about the distro or the browser. All I need is a combination that works guaranteed.

    If there is, please let me know how what I need to do to accomplish this.

    Thanks so much!

    Not a browser solution, but ...
    You could use xbmc (xvba version) and the youtube plugin. This is working great for me.

    I'm assuming XBMC would use Flash to play that YouTube content, right? In that case, would it be correct to assume that it uses the generic Flash player and that that generic player leverages xvba? If that's the case, you'd say a browser like Firefox (using the generic Flash player) would benefit from xvba's hardware acceleration as well. Can anyone concur? And if so, what Flash player leverages xvba?

    Nope.

    All is done through ffmpeg. youtube can send h264 since a long time.

    Darn. Then I'm still looking for that browser solution, which I need for my use case. Thanks, fritsch.

    Use Youtube's webm option instead of flash?
