    According to Flash Player 10.1 for Android 2.2 Release Notes it is not enabled yet.

    Unless you have a newer build version than 10.1.92.8, b/c that KB article specifically states that for build 10.1.92.8 it is disabled.

    To read more about hardware acceleration (which I believe is being used interchangeably with hardware decoding) see Flash Player 10.1 hardware acceleration for video and graphics | Adobe Developer Connection

    I know that it says that but off of real world use between the 2 versions beta 3 plays video like Shit where as the version that came specifically on the droid 2 and droid x run video flawlessly. This makes me think they tweaked that version of flash to support there gpu's.. now put the newest release on the droid 1 and it runs exactly the same as the droid x.

    Also in the release notes there is this

    So far, I have to agree. I am disappointed with how flash is working. I hope that the market version (when it comes) has been adjusted. Otherwise all of they hype wasn't worth it.
