Internet & Networking Ever since it became clear that Google was not going to push WebM as hard as they should have, the day would come that Mozilla would be forced to abandon its ideals because the large technology companies don't care about an open, unencumbered web. No decision has been made just yet, but Mozilla is taking its first strides to adding support for the native H.264 codecs installed on users' mobile systems. See it as a thank you to Mozilla for all they've done for the web.

A Pentium T4500 is not "meagre" by any stretch of the imagination. Especially when compared to an Atom CPU or a (truly meagre/ancient) Athlon64 CPU.

Yes, it is meager. Relative to the kind of CPU power that's available today. As I said, I can play back 1080p @ Hi10p, but the cores are maxed out.

And I also have something with an Atom N570 lying around, which plays 720p just fine.

Again, the HD4000-series of integrated GPUs are not "cheap-ass".

And where did I write that they were? I wrote that MY integrated GPU -- being the age-old, but ubiquitously used 4500MHD -- is cheap-ass. Also, to my knowledge Intel's new integrated graphics solutions work for HD decoding, both on Windows via DXVA and on Linux via VA-API.

Somehow I don't get your problem.
