    Plex Media center has Hardware acceleration in upcoming release!
    Plex Hardware Accelerated H.264 Decoding on Plex

    For anyone that uses Plex as a front end on a Mac mini will enjoy this! I tested it out today replacing my plex executable within the plex app, and playing a 1080p video @ 18mbps that used to take a good 150%+ cpu (1.5 core usage) now takes around 50% cpu (.5 core usage)!

    Just thought anyone interested in hardware acceleration for video playback might find this of interest.
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    Sweet. I have briefly experimented with Plex but haven't gotten around to spending a lot of time with it. Definitely good news.
    Did you know these forums are soon to be shut down?
