Status with Mac Mini and Macs with ATI video

January 22, 2008 18 Comments

Just to let you know, there are still problems with GMA950 video cards (used by the Mac Mini). I changed some of the calls from glMultiTexCoord2f to glMultiTexCoord2fARB, but it turns out I missed a bunch more.

On the other hand, I have successfully played high definition MKV videos on my wife’s iMac, which has the ATI Radeon HD2400. NOTE: You must make sure that the video resolution settings *match* between the video settings and the appearance settings (I used 720p for testing). Otherwise you will end up with a white screen, lack of video, and a completely unexpected audit by the IRS.

Version 0.0.3, available here, has one small change, which may or not make any difference at all. It was suggested by the ever-helpful d4rk as a solution to an OpenGL threading issue I was seeing with the debug display turned on.
