QT player 7.04: Streaming ogg file uses ridiculous amount of CPU power and other quircks
1.25 GHZ G4 Mac Mini 10.4.4 QT Player 7.04
Using QT player with this plugin on a streaming ogg file uses between 10% to 20% of CPU power. In contrast Whamb 1.2 uses 2% to 5% CPU power on the same stream.
The ogg continues to stream after I hit the pause button, wasting bandwith.
QT player caches the ogg stream leading to odd behaviour. So after I close the stream window and attempt to open it again the stream will start at where I had first started in the last session and end where I had closed the session, not allowing me to go any further. I worked around this problem by emptying the cache in system preferences and then restarting QT player.
