"I'm using last year's 2.33 GHz dual core MacBook Pro to run Keynote presentations from. My iPod is pretty bitchin', but I think I would probably still give the nod to the MB Pro in power. No?"<br><br>Well, yeah, but that's just the point. If the MacBook Pro has more power, I'm thinking the problem isn't with the codec. I've viewed HD video trailers in H.264 on an older G4 dual 1 Ghz machine. As expected, my Mac Pro handles it well. My wife has done the same on a variety of laptops, etc.<br><br>I'm curious as to the size of the video you are watching. Also, do you have the same stutter issues viewing from the quicktime player as you do from Keynote? I've used Keynote a bit, but not so much for displaying movies. Maybe there's a Keynote/Quicktime performance issue??<br><br><br>
"WHich would upset you more ..losing sornson ...or upping the price of QT"<br><br>Personally, I only encode new material in H.264, but that's just me. If I experienced the issues Trog mentions, I might reconsider that. I guess I've been lucky so far.<br><br>Another example would be Handbrake conversion of DVDs. H.264 there too with no issues on any of my systems. (nothing G3 anymore - I retired the old snow iMac about 2 years ago).<br><br>
I hope you don't have any important Quicktime movies with embedded Flash tracks. They won't work anymore. I found that link on Apple discussions after I realized a bunch of movies I have used in Keynote just come up as black frames now. <br><br>Not a word or warning, all abilities to view them have stopped.<br><br>I wouldn't mind transcoding them to something else, but nothing opens them. Not VLC, Adobe's flash players, etc. I don't have any machines with older versions of quicktime on it. Maybe I can find something for Windows that will open them and I can use Snapz to capture the stream.<br><br>This sucks.<br><br>
