Bhaavan Merchant - Unless the HTML5 videos on YouTube are encoded in
MPEG-4 the necessary kernal and mesa components are in Ubuntu 14.04
"Trusty Tahr".  Your GPU doesn't support hardware-accelerated decoding
of MPEG-4.  You will still need to extract the firmware as described at

You will also need Firefox 26 or later for the HTML5 video gstreamer
support and will have to install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad,
gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly and gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg.  If you want to use
the gstreamer 1.0 versions (gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad, gstreamer1.0
-plugins-ugly and gstreamer1.0-libav) you will need to wait for the
upstream Mozilla developers to fix
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=806917 - they are getting

Jarno Suni (jarnos) - as you have different hardware you have a
different (although similar) bug.
