I wish they would patch using 28% CPU just to show video. Granted my GPU probably doesn't qualify for hw accel. but still. I have been trying to use Pepper Flash, and other alternatives but I can't get any of them to work on Windows except on Youtube. ESPN3 forget it. I'll be glad when Flash is cut out altogether.
Amen to that! Mine decided to just up and start doing the Green Screen lockups last week. Apparently it linked to the hardware acceleration setting...which was never a problem before. There are a bunch of people looking for the registry method of disabling hardware acceleration, but the only "help" from Adobe is a snarky note about the information not being stored in the registry.
The point of the exercise is that it is impossible to get to the right click settings option, because the (any...) page keeps locking up the browser. Unfortunately their "support staff" is to obtuse to grasp that people need the alternative file system level version of the how to disable hardware acceleration ... So they just keep regurgitating the - at this point idiotic - settings panel option.
As an aside: WTF did they do to flash that suddenly turned it into a seizure prone nightmare??
