A buzz word is going around: hardware acceleration regarding Linux and GPU usage
Adobe has announced the finale release of its Flash Player. The Version 10.
It’s been said, it’s capable of using hardware acceleration under Linux, and that may be the truth actually. But – we are not talking about H.264 acceleration and we are talking about more limitation than only that: Read the blog of Kaourantin for more details. Or a more brief story here.
The statement, Linux won’t have hardware acceleraton for H.264 content in near future is as real as before.
But now I know at least why my fullscreen flash playback gave me 5 frames/sec. It’s because I’m using compiz. This is a no-go combination.
