I am a new Ubuntu user, some past experience of Debian, but nothing to write home about.

I am a perl enthusiast on StackOverflow.com, and I am loving the Ubuntu experience. Right now, I barely see any reason to stick with Windows.

Oh, seems that HD is working with flash player & Chromium. I guess that solves it then. Although I am not keen to give up firefox.

Nope, same thing. Most of my subs' videos are still using the Adobe Flash player instead of html5. One isn't, but that's it.

Well, it says FF4 is supported, and I am using 6. Also, I have no support for that h.262 codec. I'll give Chromium a try, seems they are just about the same, except Chromium is open source. Thanks.

In fact, I've only seen it once so far, so my saying that "it works" is making generalisations based on a rather small sample.

I have done that, but like I said, it does not seem to be available for all videos, only some.

@mike It's a laptop, it's a few years old. Windows 7 was not out, so I picked XP over Vista. 1080p stutters, but 720p plays flawlessly. In Windows. There is no notable difference having hardware acceleration on or off. Added some specs to the question.
