== plugin location ==
 
  
firefox (3.6.13) on arch 64 bit does look at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
 
 
instead of
 
 
~/mozilla/plugins/ or
 
~/.mozilla/plugins/
 
 
at least for libnpjp2.so I need to link to the correct /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for it to work
 
 
== Blue Tint Flash problem reloaded ==
 
 
To solve the blue tint problem I had to right-click a flash element already running and set (in "preferences") off the hw acceleration, otherwise I had blue tint regardless the libvdpau workaround.
 
 
Should this be added to the wiki?
 
 
== Adobe Flash Player: Hardware acceleration ==
 
 
The Article states ''For hardware acceleration on Intel/AMD, you can use {{AUR|libvdpau-va-gl}} — VAAPI backend for VDPAU. For AMD you should also install {{AUR|xvba-video}}''.
 
Can someone clarify that? It's totally unclear to me, which ATI/AMD drivers are meant. I assume, I need xvba-video when I use the catalyst/fglrx driver. What about libvdpau-va-gl? Do I need this when using the open-source radeon-driver? Do I need this if you use catalyst? Or do I need this anyway?

:See [[VA-API]], I wonder why it isn't linked from this page... -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 06:48, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
 
 
::As I understand that page, {{AUR|libvdpau-va-gl}} and {{AUR|xvba-video}} are unnecessary, no matter what driver you use. I will then remove that part from the article and link the page you suggested. [[User:Holzhaus|Holzhaus]] ([[User talk:Holzhaus|talk]]) 08:58, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:::Ah, see also [[Talk:VA-API#VDPAU vs VAAPI relationship]] for the {{AUR|libvdpau-va-gl}} and {{AUR|xvba-video}} detail, they are necessary to support VDPAU through VAAPI on Intel cards and AMD cards with proprietary drivers. However, you've correctly linked to [[VDPAU]], FlashPlayer does not use VAAPI. (Sorry for suggesting the [[VA-API]] link, I noticed [[VDPAU]] later...) -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 09:19, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
