Hallelujah!!! Flash Player 10.1 Beta 3 is here bringing hardware video acceleration to owners of netbooks with Intel GMA 500 graphics. This should make Hulu and YouTube HD usable on machines like the ASUS Eee PC T91MT, Sony Vaio P & VAIO X, the Nokia Booklet 3G, and previous-generation Dell Mini 10. Flash 10.1 beta 3 also supports the Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator found in Pine Trail Atom machines like the newest Dell Mini 10 and HP Mini 210. Engadget reviewed it on the HP Mini 210 and it managed 720p YouTube, although 1080p was a no-go. Remember this is still BETA 3, so we’ll see what happens when Broadcom releases an soon to be expected driver update. For now you should all get downloading and let us know how it’s going in comments.
