    So does anybody know if the new MBP'2011 supports hardware acceleration via Video Decode Acceleration Framework?(http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#technotes/tn2267/_index.html)

    Neither flash nor Plex gets hardware acceleration but the TN2267 says:

    "This reference describes the Video Decode Acceleration framework available on Mac OS X v10.6.3 and later with Mac models equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, GeForce 320M, GeForce GT 330M, ATI HD Radeon GFX, Intel HD Graphics and others."

    According to this, MBP2011 supports VideoDecodeAcceleration Framework but I can't get use of it.

    The frameworks are there for application programmers to use in their apps. It's not an automatic feature that magically makes apps use what's available.

    I agree with you but both Flash 10.3 and Plex use this framework when it is possible.
