How to play HD Movies (1080p/720p) With NO Cpu usage!

    Imagine being able to decode full x.264 content at 1080P with merely 20-25% CPU utilization on the Intel Atom 230 (single core), interesting right ?

    This guide will not work with older graphic cards.


    Except that most of the CPUs that are going to struggle with HD decoding are paired up with a GPU that won't help, e.g. almost every atom and almost every older processor.

    However, if you do have one of those graphics cards other articles have shown that it uses less power than the CPU to do the decoding so it's worth using for that aspect.
