What does it really require, and how is it achieved ? The less documented facts are below, on how to make this work. Note that the focus is on using the GPU.

wmode="direct"at all times. This mode is highly recommended for video playback. It uses Direct3D on Windows and OpenGL on Mac OS and Linux to actually perform video frame compositing directly through the GPU.
