Thanks Brian, but the mythfrontend binaries on "thesniderpad" are
PowerPC versions. So, your MacBook is running them in Rosetta /
PowerPC emulation mode. Your system may be fast enough to do SD video
that way, but I don't think it could do HD. We're trying to compile
mythfrontend in a native Intel format, so it can use the full power of
these new systems. With a native frontend, the core duo systems
should be able to easily handle HD video.
