    1080p/H264 on 1.33 GHz G4:

    720p/H264 on 1.0 GHz dual-G4:

    How's that even possible? I read that this mysterious CorePlayer doesn't even use the GPU but only CPU + AltiVec:

    I don't know how they do it, but it's impressive. No wonder why it's commercial. :)

    That's very impressive for a G4!

    The bit rate is nowhere near BluRay of course but it's still impressive.

    Hi, I would like to use an internal BlueRay burner with the Pegasos2 but they are SATA only, seems no IDE anymore. Did anyone try such already? Any idea what would be the best way, buy a compatible SATA PCI Card which works with MorphOS? Or any other idea/solution?
    Thanks

    You can't use bluraydiscs if I understand it well. But I do wonder: does it read DVD and CD's under MorphOS a bluray drive ?

    You can buy an USB Bluray drive ? Or maybe an IDE to SATA convertor ... and indeed SATA pcicard would be the best solution but I don't know how compatible this all will be.

    There's still at least one PATA model available in Germany:

    You still won't be able to read BD data discs under MorphOS - there's no filesystem for these.

    @ jacadcaps

    Yea, right, didn't think about the fs, no fs for MorphOS to read BD :-(

    Not only is there no filesystem for Blue-Ray disks, the video disks themselves require Java to run the menus. :-x

    Since my Sony Blue-Ray player only set me back $75, I don't see the need to invest even more money just to run these disks under MortphOS.
    Besides, I use the BlueRay player mainly to stream online video content.
    Anyone know how to get YouTube to display in fullscreen on a BlueRay player?

    I've got an LG I use the info/display button to show video in full screen, or as full as it gets. It sdhould generally look like a screen icon

    Addendum:

    > I read that this mysterious CorePlayer doesn't even use the GPU but only CPU + AltiVec

    There're also different opinions:

    "CorePlayer -- The only one really optimized for AltiVec, and seems to use the graphics card too (changing my card gave me +100% more speed)."

    What would be very beneficial for morphOS would be to have a proper support for video decode acceleration.
    I have a old PC here doing 1080P using less then 3% of the CPU, the NVidia card does all the work.
    I am curious to know if we have such a possible future option with ATI cards.

    I'm wondering about the exact same thing. I'm considering picking up a Samsung ODD external USB blu ray player, and want to use it on my mac, pc and as CD/DVD drive on the efika.

    Can a USB Blu Ray player work as a CD/DVD drive with MorphOS?
