I'm wondering what the performance of the Raspberry Pi is with streaming flash video. I enjoy watching sports from around the world, and they are usually streamed through one of a number of flash based video players.
I am not all that knowledgeable when it comes to how flash video is decoded. I would think that if it is decoded by the GPU it would work well as from what I understand the Raspberry Pi has a fairly powerful graphics processor. I would also think that if it is decoded by the cpu, it may not work very well.
Can anyone with a bit more knowledge or experience shed some light on what type of performance can be expected with streaming flash video?
