Multimedia, AV The sweet smell of competition is lingering in the air. That sweet smell which indicates that somewhere in the vicinity a company is working on actually improving a product so we can all benefit. This time around, it's Adobe, delivering the first Flash 10.2 beta. Prime feature? Complete hardware acceleration of the entire video pipeline - fully cross platform, cross-form factor. Cross-platform! There's a catch, though.

Unfortunately the frameworks that Apple provide for flash acceleration (or any other video format) are really crappy as seen in QTX, nowhere near the flexibility and capability of things like VDPAU or DXVA2
