Latest Dirac (schrodinger) release is really fast

I thought I should let people know that they really should grab latest version of the Schrodinger encoder/decoder from diracvideo.org. If you saw David Schleefs blogpost about Dirac you would have seen him mentioning it is much faster.

Having tested with GStreamer I can confirm that it is the case, it is really fast now, and CPU usage which used to be the achilles heal of Dirac doesn’t seem to be an issue now. Be sure to also grab gst-plugins-base 0.10.28 too though, as it contains a critical fix for playing back Dirac in Ogg containers.

  1. Can you quantify the speed in terms of what CPU would be need to play a 1080p or 720 or whatever video?

    can we start saying that HTML5 should use dirac?
