Based on my very limited and incomplete understanding of these
technologies, I believe the Crystal API is an API for accelerated
video content for the Broadcom Crystal HD chipset. You're starting to
see this chip show up in a lot of netbooks. Broadcom has released open
source drivers, an application library, and a gstreamer plugin, most
of which seem to have made it into Ubuntu Maverick.

I know Gnash now supports VAAPI, and it also seems as though someone
is working on a backend for the crystal API for VAAPI, which but it
seems not be very mature:

It would therefore be interesting if Gnash could make use of the
crystal API in some other way, perhaps via Gstreamer and the crystal

Let me know what you think. Thanks,
