I wonder how this would happen. The 'fullscreen $1' method queries the
OS for the screen dimensions and sets the window to that. Maybe the
dimensions are not returned properly?

Are you using pix_movie or pix_film + pix_texture? pix_,movie has an
additional optimization for getting pixels to the card. It's basically
CoreVideo as a GEM object. With frame sizes that big it can make a lot
of difference. I was able to get one 1080 stream going 60fps on a 2Ghz
G5 textured to hundreds of Geos. There's room for more code
enhancements for the PPC 970, but I don't even have decent access to
one for testing!
Does that codec use both CPUs for decompression? I would think it
would, but haven't really confirmed it.

Thanks, you too. Post some documentation of the project online if you
