Plex Hardware Accelerated H.264 Decoding on Plex (http://elan.plexapp.com/2010/04/27/hardware-accelerated-h-264-decoding-on-plex/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+osxbmc+%28Plex%29)

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.

Sweet. I have briefly experimented with Plex but haven't gotten around to spending a lot of time with it. Definitely good news.
