Benchmarks Common wisdom has it that Flash is a resource hog, and that HTML5 will prevent your processor from having to work really, really hard to show animations of videos. Well, a number of people have conducted benchmarks with the latest browsers and Flash betas, and common wisdom is starting to show serious signs of crackage.

Chromium doesnt support x264 because of licensing issues. You need to be using Google Chrome which isnt out yet for linux. Firefox doesnt support x264 because of the license issue as well but supports Theora.

First of all, the codec is H.264 or AVC; x264 is an open source encoder for H.264. Second, Google Chrome has been released for Linux for quite a while. I believe the beta was released recently, but I've been using the dev channel (which is extremely stable; I've never had it crash) for many months now.
