    Hello all! I've been using Lion GM for about two weeks now (can't exactly remember when I got it) and noticed that normal video converting programs, such as Permute (, has been converting more efficiently compared to what it was in Snow Leopard. I'm sure of it, because usually, when I have my 720p videos (don't get me wrong guys, I rip it off from the Blueray DVDs I buy) to iPhone 4 Retina resolution, it usually converts in real time. However, this time, it's converting at half the time that it would take normally in Snow Leopard. Anyone noticed this?

    It could be due to more efficient encoders. For instance: they could be using all available cores or even OpenCL.
