    I have a Motorola Droid 1 and was hoping for the Droid 2 to have better Adobe Flash support. I even resorted to overclocking it to 1.1 GHz and video playback performance on the non-mobile optimized videos were just a little better.

    If only there was something better than Flash. HTML5 doesn’t support encryption (DRM and all that) so most of the sites I visit to watch videos won’t be using HTML5 anytime soon.

    Hopefully Flash becomes more resource efficient (not something Adobe is famous for) and/or these future faster ARM chipsets like dual core Cortex-A9 will be powerful enough for Flash.

    For me, performance was probably less of an issue than the lack of usable controls/interfaces, but it is incredibly annoying that a YouTube video may playback just fine one minute, then is suddenly start running terribly (same video) with no explanation.
