Thanks Jedi, I am trying with Firefox and Chromium and I can not get
hardware acceleration, this is the "about:plugins" page on both

Shockwave Flash (3 files)
Shockwave Flash 11.0 r1

I try both flash and HTML5 versions on YouTube, but when I play a
1080p video, I get 80.85% CPU usage. There are xorg and chromium
binary files with high CPU.

Need I some extra configuration to get it working?

Thanks and best regards.
