Plex Offers Hardware Accelerated H.264 Decoding



Plex, Mac Media Center, has already taken advantage of Apple opening up the GPU Framework. Everyone was excited when Apple opened it up hoping it would speed up flash. It’s nice to see Plex working so quickly to provide the support first, at least the first that I know of. Using hardware acceleration will take the load off of the CPU and put it on the GPU for better results with HD content. You have to have at least the NVidia 9400M or better GPU and be running Snow Leopard. Plex is free so try it out.
