I doubt that the new video drivers are going to change that. On MorphOS it's the CPU that's decoding A/V and syncing them. To be able to properly view 1080p content on a G4 based system we'd need drivers that use the GPU to decode the video stream.
Then we reduce playback quality to 720P. We know that works.. What we need now is a way not read Bluray and convert files to an easily displayed format. That's why I like the MKV format.
