H.264 GPU Decoding in Flash Player on Mac OS X is live! by Thibault Imbert

Inception HD Trailer
We just pushed a few minutes ago a new version of the Flash Player 10.1.82.76 containing a nice feature that was in beta until now called "Gala". Yes, H.264 GPU decoding in Mac OSX is now officially enabled in the Flash Player.

You should notice now a nice difference when playing H.264 content on your Mac in terms of CPU usage. We rarely enable new features in security releases but we really wanted to enable such a cool feature. For more details about it, Tinic already posted about this.

Of course, you will not see the tiny top left white rectangle anymore, we removed it.

Noe that we are actively working on improving even more the video experience in the Flash Player, more about this soon.

To download the latest version, you know where to get it ;)

It may take a few hours to get propagated, so make sure you double check the version.

    Hi Ozren,

    What is your configuration ? The video you tried ? Remember there are some requirements in terms of OS version and graphics card and the dimensions of the content being decoded.

    For now :

    Hardware accelerated decode requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 and either NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, GeForce 320M or GeForce GT 330M GPUs.

    Also :

    Video clips will a width of 864 fallback to software H264 decoding on the nVidia GeForce 9400M. This is a known limitation of the GeForce 9400M drivers. Unfortunately, YouTube Clips at 480p resolution often use a width of 864. Switch to 720p or 1080p to benefit from hardware acceleration for these clips. The hardware decoder will not be used for video with frame dimensions smaller than 480×320. For video smaller than that size, the cpu/speed improvements for using the GPU rather than the CPU are negligible.

    Those restrictions are dictated by NVIDIA and Apple.

    Hi Ozren,

    Then it can be a driver issue. To make sure the decoder is really being used, can you try the old Gala player here :

    And let me know if you see the white box rectangle on the top left while watching those videos ?

    Yes, this is because in Safari we use CoreAnimation :

    It has nothing to do with GPU H.264 decoding.

    After confirmation, what you are expecting may be due to drivers. On some drivers we actually have to read back the video frames from the GPU on the CPU, so you will not see improvements.

    I have a new MacBook Pro i7, and am still seeing CPU percentages in the 35-45% range. This on a 720p hd clip on you tube.

    But…I noticed an odd thing, which may mean nothing: I’m in Safari, this page is on one tab, and you tube video playing on another tab. Activity monitor is showing up in a different space within Spaces. When the you tube tab is hidden, but the video still playing, CPU drops down to 22%. When the tab is active with the video playing, it jumps up to 40%, even though I’m in a different space.

    Maybe this is all normal.

    The GPU’s they’ve listed are the ones Apple support for hardware decoding. If you have hardware decoding of video in Quicktime X, you should have it in Flash now too. If you have a GPU other than the ones listed above, and want hardware decoding, take it up with Apple. As much as I dislike Adobe generally, lack of support of other GPUs is not at all their responsibility and I doubt there’s anything they could reasonably do to work around Apples limitations on that one.

    Hi there, this is Paul from earlier today. I was able to test the GPU-accelerated Flash plugin on some more youtube videos today, and here is what I found.

    – on my setup (13″ MBP, 9400m, OS X 10.6.4), 360p and 480p videos do not show any significant improvement in CPU usage. Not that big of a deal really since GPU acceleration for 480p is disabled due to limitations in Apple-Nvidia software, and 360p playback already sees relatively low CPU use (~20-25% on Safari 5.0.1).

    – 720p videos do show a significant improvement in CPU usage. Using the Inception HD trailer shown in the screenshot at the top of the page (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HilwtqaN4Gs), total CPU use went from 60% in the first release of Flash player 10.1, to around 40% when watching 720p version with the updated plugin.

    So far so good, thank you and keep up the good work :)

    background: i have disabled the ATI Radeon drivers in my original MBP — which are INFAMOUS for running at scorching hot temperatures on account of the demented video drivers (100ºC even when not doing any heavy lifting) — by removing those kext’s to another folder.

    question: why wont the Flash plugin (10.0) work without the Radeon drivers? (safari notifies me that the plugin is not installed — yet i didnt remove it!) …

    And will the same anomaly occur with the new (10.1) plugin?

    PS: strangely, there are other side-effects after the Radeon drivers are removed!

    eg Some but not all (!) of the screen-savers wont run (eg fluury is ok but the default pictures produce an error message); screen-shots cant be captured; plus a couple of others i forget).

    i am wondering if these non-video aspects of the graphics driver are a clue about another explanation for why Flash (old & new) fails: namely that one of the core ATI kexts got unblessed when i accidently removed the extra Radeon drivers? …

    obviously osx crashed when i restarted without one of the base video drivers — and started up ok when i returned the base kext into its system subfolder …

    but ever since then i have received an non-fatal error message (after boot up is finished) telling me that this same base driver cant be used (because it wasnt installed properly, or something like that).

    so — i wonder — is prereq for Flash *not* the Radeon drivers but instead merely a properly blessed base ATI driver?

    pps: i dont have the time to experiment with more installations to do trial & error — flash is not a must-have feature for me but it is very useful for legacy shopping sites that arent using modern html/css3/svg graphics design techniques … so it does still pose a genuine inconvenience until they retool!

    Hi guys,

    I know it is frustrating for GPU chips which are not compatible. Again, understand that this decision was not made by us and is not in our hands. We do rely on the Video Decode Acceleration framework provided by Apple, which works on specific NVIDIA cards only today :

    http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/technotes/tn2010/tn2267.html#TNTAG1

    For ATI cards, we will need to wait until the Video Decode Acceleration framework does handle those cards.

    The video decoding is done in two steps, first one is decoding the frames, hat is actually done here with the Video Decode Acceleration framework and then we need to actually display the decoded frames. This step, will be improved in a future version of the Flash Player, which will improve even more the video experience.

    You guys should be able to try some more stuff soon ;)
