6-7 movies, some AVM1 some AVM2.
Either with master or fast, cpu usage is quite low.

I can't reproduce with the "fast" branch. Didn't really try with "master". Can anyone ?

I see 90 to 100% when a single copy of gnash is running.  It makes no difference if the clip is fully downloaded and the player is paused.

The problem with that site is it loads something like 10 flash movies at the same time! Stupid web site design. Whether swfdec is installed or not shouldn't effect Gnash, so I assume you meant swfdec had lower cpu usage when installed instead of Gnash ? Anyway, with Gnash trunk, the site still works for me, (on a 32bit system), I'll try on a 64 bit Ubuntu one later.

see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=496983

Description of problem:
gnash in firefox consumes high CPU if swfdec is missing.
In http://www.mbl.is/mm/frettir/ cpu is 100 %.

IF swfdec is innstalle then cpu is more resonable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnash.x86_64 0.8.5-3.fc11
gnash-plugin.x86_64 0.8.5-3.fc11

swfdec.x86_64 0.9.2-2.fc11
swfdec-gtk.x86_64 0.9.2-2.fc11
swfdec-mozilla.x86_64 0.9.2-2.fc11


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
open System Monitor
open in firefox http://www.mbl.is/mm/frettir/

Actual results:
high cpu

Expected results:
reasonable cpu as when swfdec is innstalled.

Additional info:
when swfdec is installed then cpu is much lower.

Problem is aolso in fedora F10 fully updated
