I read in the "Max 7 64 bit Issues and Limitations" found here:
that jit.movie uses DirectShow for playing videos and that we should install codecs for that as described on the Ableton page here:
There is a link to the CoreAVC codec, which claims to move the decoding onto supported graphics cards:
Now I wonder if this remains true for the use in Max?
Can we use output_texture for that?
Are other DirectShow codes like the HAP Codec supported as well?
This would be very awesome, since the only way on Windows to get high performance HD playback at the moment is to use the jit.gl.hap (thank you Rob), which only exists as 32 bit external. Since it interrupts playback when reading files, it is necessary to preload all the videos, what leads to RAM shortage quickly...
If this is not possible, consider this a feature request.
For me it's the only thing missing, before jitter becomes the greatest live video software there is.
oh, and easier multi-threading support ;)
To all the Cyclists: Keep up the great work!
Any comments are much appreciated.
