What ever happened to the licensing issues discussion?  I did a pretty
exhaustive analysis of VA API in September, and concluded that there
was virtually no free software support for it, the spec only specifies
nonfree codecs, the implementations only accelerate nonfree codecs,

Just a quick reply: where do you see free codecs in Flash that can benefit from HW acceleration? Do you really think Flash would ever support free codecs...? Do you really think there are free codecs competitive enough with H.264 to be used as a replacement? Currently, I strongly believe the answers to all of those is 'no' and I doubt this would change for Flash.

Longer answer later.
