Multimedia, AV Not too long ago, Apple added the Video Decode Acceleration framework to Mac OS X, allowing developers to get low-level access to hardware H264 acceleration. Adobe was quite thrilled about this, because they claimed this was needed for Flash video to become hardware accelerated on the Mac. This feature's been in beta for a while now, but yesterday they finally released it as part of a regular Flash Player update. Caveat: Apple's support for this framework can be a bit sketchy.

However regular flash content has been much improved; Not so much that I'm willing to remove Flashblock, but still an improvement

I agree, it seems Flash developers have been learning what not to do and apps have become more streamlined and useful lately. Even those pointless corporate landing pages -- so common in the past few years -- are becoming mildly entertaining.
