Currently Being ModeratedJun 27, 2009 9:48 AM (in response to Shash450)Quicktime is for now needs a fast CPU and that is what you have...As for now as faster encoding for Quicktime, not really.
Quicktime X that comes with Snow Leopard will take advantage of the video card for acceleration. And for encoding video too. This will make encoding faster. Leaving the cpu to take care of other business. Something that some of use have been awaiting for for a long time.G-4 1.2 GIG, 1.5 GIGs of Ram, WD 800FW 500 GIGs & 2TB HDs, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Quicktime 7.6, FCS2, iWorks 09 and a bunch of other stuff...

So does the hardware acceleration currently only work with .mov files then? Because there is a clear acceleration compared with 1080p MKVs etc.
Also, has Apple mentioned exactly which formats will benefit from hardware acceleration in Quicktime X?
The new Windows Media Player on Windows 7 plays even 1080p .m2ts files at only 10% CPU thanks to the amazing hardware acceleration!!!Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
