Multimedia, AV Not too long ago, Apple added the Video Decode Acceleration framework to Mac OS X, allowing developers to get low-level access to hardware H264 acceleration. Adobe was quite thrilled about this, because they claimed this was needed for Flash video to become hardware accelerated on the Mac. This feature's been in beta for a while now, but yesterday they finally released it as part of a regular Flash Player update. Caveat: Apple's support for this framework can be a bit sketchy.

Poor support - not Adobe's fault either! My iMac 24 has an ATI graphics card so this won't be much use to me.

Is it the case that the ATI hardware can't do h264 acceleration I wonder.

Quicktime uses NVIDIA’s VP3 (Pure Video 3) API for hardware acceleration of H.264 video

I assume this is what they opened up access to.
