Hardware HD video decoding

March 11, 2008 | 8:30 am

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since my last maxmsp project. It was a pain when I tried to play a 720p quicktime movie in a cinema screen..what’s more was that it was shown on a monster G5 quad….

It was almost 6 months ago, and now it seems the hardware acceleration for HD video decoding becomes so popular (even flash support hardware acceleration for HD playback!), I wonder if jitter do support that through the latest quicktime and the jit.qt.movie object.

Anyone got an idea?

Cheers,
Hamlet

Jitter uses quicktime, which can play back HD files.

Jitter/Max is a programming environment, which means if you do
something silly it will gladly keep doing it for you.

If you want to play back HD in Jitter, you need to use GL or direct to
window mode.

Take a gander here.
