In short WebM does look like least resource hungry on decode and Linux still sucks at graphics


Linux actually supports several acceleration frameworks for several types of video cards but ultimately, its up to the player to leverage those capabilities. Sadly, many players do not properly leverage this capability. What you're blaming on Linux should likely be blamed on your video player. Its not a Linux problem for lots of common hardware.

Adobe has been especially slow to leverage available hardware acceleration frameworks which have long been available on Linux. Sadly, they've been chasing a NIH development path and creating their own acceleration layer rather than use what's long been available.
