  Interesting... I hadn't heard of that one. If it's in Maverick, I can try

  You mean vaapi or the crystal API isn't mature ?

  It probably can. Right now I'm slowly (between other tasks) refactoring
the rendering API in Gnash to better support things like HW accelerated video.
While the current VAAPI support works, I think how it works can be improved.
I'll look at the docs, but if this is a gstreamer plugin (OMAP is the same),
there may not be anything Gnash has to do special to utilize this.

  I'd have to find some hardware with this chipset to really know if it works.
