Can you goto, click on a video, right click on it and select "Show video info"

You should see "Accelerated video rendering". On Lion I see "software video rendering"

I am having problems playing flash videos in full screen. It's always lagging so much but if I don't zoom in then the video just plays fine. I tried it with Flash v10.2 and 10.3RC…

Major issue, and Adobe know about it for a while, the use camera and microphone panel appears, but you cannot input a allow or deny. The work around is to go into the flash player pref pane, and accept in there, but to close the panel in safari, use the tab key to get to close, then hit the space bar.

I'm having issues with fullscreen flash video freezing during playback. The audio continues to play, it's just like the video stream stops refreshing. If I use a three-finger gesture to partially swipe to the next desktop, or enter/exit mission control, the video jumps ahead to match the audio, then plays without issue. Trying to nail this down to a Lion + Flash issue or a Lion + Flash + something on my iMac issue, as it's easily reproduced in Safari with flash 10.3 beta, and Chrome with it's little flashlet.

Have tried many ways to get stable flash, trial and Error, using restore back to SL.
Have found most stable to be installed in SL then upgrade to Lion.
Trying to cause them, but no problems "yet".
