There is a new version of flash player: (vs 202.228 current in
I have been using it and:
- the color problems are the same with HW-render + SW decode
- the crashes seem to be gone with HW-Render + HW-Decode

The HW accel really works in nVidia, I have been trying with


and at 1080p, full software puts plugin-container at 100-120 % CPU time,
and full hardware leaves it under 10% most of time.

So perhaps it is safe to ship an mms.cfg that disables all HW acceleration
and put a README for nVidia users on how to do the trick in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg.
Or maybe unconditionally enable HW decoding as it does nothing on intel
graphics, I think...
