Check for Hardware Video Acceleration capabilities

29 June 2011 - 08:32 PM

Small command line tool that checks the capabilities of your graphics hardware & OS to decode h264 videos on your GPU. Apple doesn't seems to allow all GPU's to use the System Framework, despite the fact that they have the hardware capabilities (like Geforce 8800 or Fermi cards). The tool have the same error codes like other VDA Software (XBMC) but its easier to test.

On Lion with current Fermi drivers i get an error by the decoder.

You can try it and post your software & hardware combination.

requires Mac OS X 10.6.3
