Flash player hardware aceleration in youtube under winxp.

  • Hi, i have and very old computer(northwood 478 3,4 ghz) that can't reproduce 1080p in youtube using cpu. But i have installed a his 4670 agp.This gpu support flash hardware aceleration in 1080P videos.

    When i use firefox the hardware aceleration works and i can watch 1080P perfect in youtube. But it not appear works wih opera.My cpu is in 100% use and frames drop.

    Is possible activate it?

  • I don't think Opera's hardware acceleration has ever worked in Windows XP, even with the old Presto Opera.

  • Flash has its own settings, you'd have to right-click on a Flash object and get it from the context menu.
