    Any one who knows an application that can use GPU acceleration for playback of MKV, MP4 and so on in x.264 codecs?

    Like Windows Media Player Classic Home Cinema for windows, where i use like 10% max CPU when playing 1080p material

    I think this is something that Apple would have to implement this within OSX or at least Quicktime or something. So for now, I don't think there is something like this.

    Please, correct me anyone if I am wrong (not that I care much, as I have a GMA950, so GPU acceleration wont help ME that much :()

    This sounds like one of the things Quicktime X is going to be offering better codec support for when Snow Leopard comes out.

    I hope it applies to .flv videos too.

    Seems that maybe CorePlayer for OSX can do this. However they offer no trial, so i havent tryed it out yet.
