can your MacBook Pro 13" deal with high def flash video?
My MacBook Air can't really cope...
720p runs perfect, no idea about 1080p flash.
Even SD video on my 15" freezes sometimes, usually at the best part of a video (complex motion takes more power to decode). Flash sucks. I can't wait until everyone switches to HTML5, assuming browsers can agree on a video format.
It is smooth. Though it uses 100% CPU to do so. Which is pathetic.
it's so annoying that the trivial process of watching a video is so inefficient and unreliable!!
Why can Apple and Adobe not develop GOOD SOFTWARE??
So much for OpenCL solving all our woes.
OpenCL hasn't been around long enough to really be used yet. Hopefully big software companies will start using it, though.
It's really Adobe's fault that Flash sucks (not Apple's). Everything Adobe makes is bloated and slow.
It shouldn't be hard to improve flash video. .flv is just a video container, and flash video players are just simple flash objects that let you control the video playback. All it should take is an improved decoding algorithm or codec to make flash videos play better. It can't be that hard if applications like Quicktime and VLC can play video with much lower CPU use.
And then there's other flash ads and animations that use lots of CPU. If a simple animation uses nearly 100% CPU on something like a Core2Duo, there must be something seriously wrong with flash.
yeah mine's got 110%. i hope adobe fix all these in the next flash release.
I'm using Flash 10.1 beta, and it is only a little better. Maybe 10% less CPU use.
