Adobe has just pushed out the 4th release candidate for Adobe Flash Player 10.1. The new version is supposed to enable 1080p HD Flash video playback on computers with Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, which is just about every 11 to 12 inch thin and light laptop with an Intel CULV processor released in the last year or so. That includes the Acer Aspire 1810, Acer Aspire 1410, Dell Inspiron 11z, Lenovo IdeaPad U150, and Asus UL20A.

I took Flash Player 10.1 RC4 for a spin on my Asus UL20A, and I have to say, I didn’t notice much difference. While I was able to play a 1080p HD movie trailer from YouTube, the video was a little bit choppy — much as it was with RC3 installed. Lower resolution 720p Flash videos, on the other hand look excellent.

I imagine your results may vary though, so if you’ve had a chance to try out the latest release on a computer with GMA 4500MHD graphics, let us know about your experiences in the comments.

    What is wrong with you people, of course you are suppose to have the latest drivers from Intel. The Key word is “update”, meaning get with the times not he past.

    Update your drivers from INTEL, when installing Flash 10.1 RC4. But make sure you Completely uninstall any old flash versions in your PC, that includes any old Java versions as well.
    Updating drivers fixes errors, glitches, improves performance and adds features.

    1. Unfortunately, there was no improvement after update the Intel driver 🙁

      But i found out that 1080p youtube run flawlessly when not in full screen mode. 720p is still only chugging along at 4 fps, which makes absolutely no sense to me.

      Oh well, it’s still an RC after all.

  2. I tried playing the Tron Legacy trailer on my Wind U200. 720p was a mess with an average of 4 fps second, compared to 24 fps in 480p. BUT i also tried to run 1080p which resulted in almost watchable 12 fps. wtf?

  3. Tried it on a dell inspiron 11z. Hulu is still choppy full screen even in standard res
