[Platform_Linux]OverrideGpuValidation does not work anymore on 945GM
Starting from flashplugin 184.108.40.206, watching fullscreen videos using hardware scaling on eeepc 1005ha running linux (945GM intel chipset) is impossible.
In the past, adding OverrideGPUValidation=true in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg gave smooth and tearing free videos, now it seems that it is just ignored, videos tears and are choppy, with very high cpu load.
Steps to Reproduce:
- force OverrideGPUValidation=true in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
- Play a fullscreen youtube video with 945GM intel chipset on a gnu/linux system with flashplugin 220.127.116.11 installed
- see that it tears and that youtube video info reports "software video rendering"
- do the same on flashplugin 10.3.180.65
- see that the video is smoother and tear free, youtube video info reports "accelerated video rendering"
youtube fallbacks on software video rendering
youtube to use hardware scaling, just as previous flash plugin version
downgrade flash player

I agree with all the people below! Please don't let us down.

Enable it so that Linux users can have same experience as other platform, please!

It is incredable that this support for hardware acceleration is even contested!
It is a critical hit to all Linux comunity!
I have nice laptop Benq S41, good CPU T5550 and nice GPU 8600M. There are no drivers to Win 7. Win xp and vista sucks.. On Win Xp youtube HD looks great and in Linux I must bear lags?! What we have done for such punishment?! I can not even revert flash to 10.3 becouse youtube need 11!!!

I used Linux on both my home and work computers, and I force many more users migrating to Linux. I wish you'd support this.

A lot more than just web video and games can use this acceleration. We are using flash player installed on Linux gaming boxes that now don't have GPU support to use the great frameworks like Starling. At the very least, please let the community know if this will be enabled in future Chromium Pepper releases.

I hope this is fix. Video on software rendering is almost useless

Please bring back hardware acceleration support for Flash. It's almost useless without hardware accel, unless you're just trying to force people over to HTML5...

Linux platform must be supported if you want to be considered seriously.

I can only wish quick death for flash player in favour of HTML5.
Despite watching video in flash player I only found annoying adds nothing more.
Only thing I can imagine is that microsoft is paying for slowing down the user from changing OS from Windows to Linux.

please reopen #3002806, because if hardware rendering is disabled any override would probably have no effect.

It's rather annoying to be ignored. The same happens on my desktop as well.
5:30:48 PM GMT+00:00 Feb 23, 2012
Stop ignoring the Linux peeps. We can haz performances too?

Same as ashkun, using a radeonHD 6950 on archlinux. flashplayer v10 worked fine with the OverrideGPUValidation.

On my machine, videos displayed using the fullscreen toggle exhibit lag/tearing, but videos viewed without toggling fullscreen seem to perform well (no matter how large I make the player, even going fullscreen in the browser using F11). I also believe that the issue covers more than the 945GM because I am also experiencing it on an NVIDIA GTS 250 with the NVIDIA driver. It could also be some sort of regression, because version 10.2.161.23 (for example) behave correctly.
