Windows/Mac/Linux: Adobe Flash Player 10.1 is now available for download, for crisper and better HD video playback. Flash Player offers up full graphics hardware acceleration for the high-definition H.264 video standard.
In this updated version, graphics acceleration of H.264 content is limited to Windows PCs. If you've been waiting to upgrade to the much-improved Flash Player 10.1 until it hit a full, stable release, now's the time. Mac and Linux users can't yet enjoy the hardware acceleration despite the beta that offers it for Macs, so you may have to wait a little longer for the real graphics boosts.
Flash Player 10.1 is a free download for Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Whether or not you're on Windows, the 10.1 update provides better performance and network handling across all systems.
