Tall ships (porthole)

(no subject)

It's rather crazy that despite Flash being completely the wrong tool for playing videos, it does a better job than whatever Firefox uses for HTML5 video.

It's very crazy that on the modern Internet the state-of-the-art for video playback is so much worse than what any half-decent media player could do 15 years ago. Seriously, are DXVA and video overlays still a thing, or does everything just throw all the pixels at the CPU and hope that it's fast enough?
