How can i activate VAAPI so that the system uses the GPU unit as well as flash? Is it possible to play youtube 720p at the moment?

Install vlc and enable GPU acceleration in inputs and codecs.
So at the moment we can only have GPU acceleration in VLC?
Thanks for the fast anwser.
For movie players yes, for Unity etc. its enabled by default once driver is installed.
neverthless it seems that ubuntu runs slowly... its a shame, i would love to use it to its full extend.
Seems like the hibernate/sleep issue, where the 1215b doesn't recover from sleep, is caused by the ATI/AMD FGLRX video driver. If you uninstall the driver from the driver manager sleep works. Unity will not work though, and no videoacceleration. I read somewhere that this issue with FGLRX is fixed in the newest driver from the ATI website. I haven't been able to get this driver running, it installs but libGL is placed wrong and everything seems to be in the wrong places.
I'm running 11.10 might be why the driver don't install.
I updated to the official release of Ubuntu 11.10 and I see a big difference in performance. I am sure this is because of the new kernel 3.0 which is optimized for AMD Fusion APU. I wanted to see what everyone is using for power management. This thing can pull about 10 hours on Windows. I was using Jupiter before with good results(about 8 hours) but I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with anything else that is good.
P.S. I have an issue installing the AMD drivers, but the open source ones seem to be working very good
How can i remove the ATI drivers and install the open source ones so that suspend works?
