System Recommendations

Recommended Hardware Configurations for H.264 High Definition (HD) Playback

To play high definition video, a large amount of data must be
processed by your computer. A powerful system will deliver the best
playback experience.

For 1280x720 (720p) video at 24-30 frames per second:

     * 1.8 GHz PowerMac G5 or faster Macintosh computer
     * At least 256 MB of RAM
     * 64 MB or greater video card

For 1920x1080 (1080p) video at 24-30 frames per second:

     * Dual 2.0 GHz PowerMac G5 or faster Macintosh computer
     * At least 512 MB of RAM
     * 128 MB or greater video card


Does this only work on Apple computers?

Is the codec also available for the pc, the site only mentions Tiger?

If it is fully AVC compliant it should also be viewable on alternatives
like: http://www.mainconcept.com/h264_encoder.shtml.

Any other interesting encoder/decoder alternatives out there for the pc,
preferably free ones?
