    Is my acer revo working correctly ? - Wont play bbc iplayer hd or youtube hd

    screen shot of performance in following post.
    cpu usage is around 95% when playing youtube hd and performance is very choppy for this and bbc hd on iplayer, i thought it was suppose to offload this onto the nividia ion graphics or something like that?
    need some advice on what to do to have smooth playback, thanks

    dont play hd!

    it can do HD directly, but flash has other overheads as well

    flashHD is a big ask for a low powered system

    Blame adobe. They wont allow its use in open source projects, so as the BBC are now using flash in iPlayer, thats pretty much the end of iplayer on anything other than a PC / Mac.

    EDIT: LOL........ And there was me thinking everyone JUST used their Revo's for XBMC!!!

    You wont get HD running properly under windows. It did used to work fine under XBMC.... but wont anymore.

    Absolutely nothing to do with it..... and it could play HD content until 3 weeks ago when adobe pulled the plug.

    Just fallen in.... this isnt the pluggin in XBMC he's talking about......... Yes... its pants under windoze

    that was flash beta, if you rely on a beta then its just not ready for primetime

    Yes, adobe need to get flash not to be such a hog, the acer is fine, but that is the situation for now
    you cant do flashHD for now, keep fingers crossed
