PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While most of us here on the OSNews team are proponents of HTML5, we're all fully aware that Flash serves an important role on the web today, and will most likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Flash has a rather spotty record when it comes to performance, and so far, hasn't been able to run well on mobile devices. It seems this is about to change, as an Adobe evangelist has showed off Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2 (Froyo) running on the Nexus One. And eerlijk is eerlijk, it looks pretty darn impressive, especially considering how far they've come.

I think that there's a problem with *embedding* video in browsers on linux, not with playing it in an accelerated way.

No, not really. When using other plugins than Flash on Linux to play video files (embedded using the object tag), the very same videos that played with high CPU load on YouTube with Flash, play just fine using other methods. For example I now use the "Youtube without Flash Auto" script for GreaseMonkey in conjunction with GNOME-MPlayers's Mozilla plugin: Way better performance than Flash.
Same with HTML5 video in Konqueror (same MP4 file as on YouTube).
