An AVI file may carry audio/visual data inside the chunks in virtually any compression scheme, including Full Frame (Uncompressed), Intel Real Time (Indeo), Cinepak, Motion JPEG, Editable MPEG, VDOWave, ClearVideo / RealVideo, QPEG, and MPEG-4 Video.

I'm not sure, otoh, which other codecs can be automagically shifted off the CPU onto the GPU for decompression, and what the OS and software requirements are for that. It appears your GPU is not one of those supported by CoreImage. So it may be that DVD/vob/MPEG2/MPEG1 files are the only ones which will run entirely on the GPU.
Really? I don't know if it is related, but every version I try will crash every time under Tiger on a 500 MHz G3.ClassicHasClass wrote:VLC is not well optimized for AltiVec.
I'll give those a try. Ae they freeware or shareware?ClassicHasClass wrote:Some people have reported decent performance with Movist or CorePlayer,
I might do that instead since it's already built in the the OS.ClassicHasClass wrote:but I just use QuickTime 7 and Perian playing back H.264 on my Luxo G4.
Good! I just want it to work "well enough" without overtaxing the computer. What speed is your G4? I'm trying to do this on a 1 GHz PowerBook, perhaps that has something to do with it (too slow, etc.)?ClassicHasClass wrote:It works well enough.
