    ...you will find instructions for this.

    I have a Nvidia 6600 256MB card, 2.0GHz AMD Sempron and 2GB RAM.

    I have managed to run several 1080p trailers and clipps with a CPU load of between 30-80%.




    I don't know if anyone else have tested this in MediaPortal?

    I actually just noticed that the Core AVC don't even use the GPU to decode the h.264 and I even managed to run the trailers I downloaded without problem on a Athlon XP 2000+ with a Nvidia 440MX card with absolutely no problem. :)

    Next version of the Core AVC will even utilize GPU support... we will se about that.
