Multimedia, AV VLC 2.0 has been released. "With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 is a major upgrade for VLC. Twoflower has a new rendering pipeline for video, with higher quality subtitles, and new video filters to enhance your videos. It supports many new devices and BluRay Discs (experimental). Completely reworked Mac and Web interfaces and improvements in the other interfaces make VLC easier than ever to use. Twoflower fixes several hundreds of bugs, in more than 7000 commits from 160 volunteers."

On my 10.5.8 Powerbook 1.67Mhz VLC 1.12 plays a .Mov file with 45% CPU, with VLC 2, 100% with skipping of sound.

Just sayin'.

Either way, that's still some impressive optimisation, for a CPU clocked not even 2x higher than the MOS 6510 in my Commodore 64 ;)
