I need to play 3 movies - to 3 monitors (HD size) - in sync and am trying many compression variations so they will all play smoothly in the highest possible quality. So far not too successful as they tend to start looking unite low res.
The computer that will be playing them is a Mac Pro, one 2.8 GHZ quad core Xeon processor and 3 GB RAM. There are 2 graphics cards (i.e. one extra) so as to be able to connect the monitors.
I don't have the machine here so can't test on it but wonder - will the graphics cards help in any way (Radeon HD5770) and / or is there a codec that will suit them ? And will upping the RAM help ?
Any strategies or suggestions most welcome !
