    well we had that option in the contextual menu of any flash video. Where exactly is it located now in browsers settings?

    Chrome - settings -> advanced settings -> "use hardware acceleration..." down the bottom.
    IE - internet options -> [tab] advanced -> THE FIRST OPTION - select to disable HA, deselect to enable.

    Why are you looking for it ? its enabled by default anyway.

    Old chrome version ? or maybe try beta/dev versions, those are "as stable as chrome can be", but with newer features and have that option, cause i use it myself for now.
