The Power Mac G5 can’t be eclipsed by a live solar eclipse at 720p :D

no don’t read my status message
But in 1080p, things slow to about 1fps.

And that’s probably in large part to the paltry OEM GeForce 5200 video card.

But hey, this is cool!

In my 1.8Ghz Dual, I have a Geforce 6800 ultra. I am able to play 1080p video locally at a watchable framerate. SO you're probably right about the 5200 being part of the problem. I've also got 6GB of ram in mine.
