  Turns out I screwed up my performance test for vaapi support. My test
video was actually mpeg2, regardless of the suffix. When I used a true
h264 video at 720p, the cpu load stays at about 30%, not 60%. :-) I can
now even stream multiple h264 videos at the same time, and my laptop
doesn't fall over dead like it used to.

  I can build and add packages to our repository that support this, but
don't believe I can redistribute ffmpeg. For Ubuntu, we can use the
experimental multimedia packages, but that doesn't help anyone not on
Lucid or Maverick. So I'd love to find a volunteer in a land far, far,
away, to do this...

  I'll update the wiki page soon (I'm traveling, and about to drop
offline for a day) on how to do this. The short summary is to grab my
libva packages from the Gnash repository, build ffmpeg from source, and
then configure Gnash to use ffmpeg.

  To enable for web browsing, just set HWAccel to vaapi in your .gnashrc
file, and away you go...
