Flash video sucks! It takes a super fast computer to berely run a 480p youtube video. What's it going to take to run a 1080p video? Flash videos consume too much CPU power. My friend's G5 that has a dual core processor at 2.0 Ghz that can't even run HD videos on youtube without major frame skips. So I guess you must need an even faster machine to handle it?

Hardware acceleration coming in the next version (10.1) of Flash should help, and there's already a preview release of it out.

Not really. I tested a 1080p youtube video on my laptop last night, and it was perfectly smooth. It's an older C2D T5600 (1.83GHz, 667FSB).

CPU usage for 1080p was at around 80%. 720p YouTube only required 40%, and 480p (HQ mode) just 8-10%. This was all under Win7.

All PowerPC CPUs, including the G5, absolutely sucked at Flash, so no surprise there. The Intel Macs are supposed to be a lot better at that stuff.

Adobe really killed it with flash. I remember when flash use to be fast as hell and it ran so smoothly on a G3 333 Mhz Mac. Now Flash began to run suckish ever since Adobe bought Macromedia. I can't even play regular youtube videos on my 1.3 Ghz AMD desktop smoothly ever since I upgraded to 10.

They really need to make compatible with all CPUs not just the ones that are currently out.
