Multimedia, AV Not too long ago, Apple added the Video Decode Acceleration framework to Mac OS X, allowing developers to get low-level access to hardware H264 acceleration. Adobe was quite thrilled about this, because they claimed this was needed for Flash video to become hardware accelerated on the Mac. This feature's been in beta for a while now, but yesterday they finally released it as part of a regular Flash Player update. Caveat: Apple's support for this framework can be a bit sketchy.

FFS, use ClickToFlash or FlashBlock already and be done with the whining!

Actually, I don't allow Flash on my systems at all.

The issues comes with helping out friends' parents with their computers and all the hassle that Flash adds to their lives.

That's odd. Most of the people I provide tech support would be ringing my phone off the hook if they couldn't access video, games, or any of the other pervasive internet content that requires Flash. But if that's not a problem for you, more power to you.
