Hi,

I'd love to see VLC Player support for video playback. The latest reaper version (January 15, 2013, version 4.32) supports VLC now and and works very stable.
You can make VLC player using the GPU to decode the video, so there is less cpu load.
But I'm not sure whether this causes delay for the video, as the signal has to be send to the GPU and return. So that could cause an offset of sound and video.
But VLC without GPU function is stable enough to support video, making working for film smoother.

When playing a video on PC with quicktime, I see artecafts in the video. Doesn't matter whether I use a H.264/mov (25% CPU load playing video only) or a rendered Sorensen/mov of the H.264 version (between 1 + 2 % CPU load).
With VLC Player, video runs smooth, concerning my almost 3,5 year old PC, thats very important.

I was trying to find out, if my Saffire Radeon Flex HD 6450 (GPU supporting 3 Monitors with DVI connectors, passive cooling, low power consuming) was to weak, but it isn't.
It's specs say, that it supports HD-Video quality. With Reaper and VLC it plays both videos smoothly!

One reason to use quicktime instead of VLC Player might be the easier to use video export function within Live. In reaper this works way more tricky.
Also installing all the codecs, not that user friendly IMHO in reaper. Another reason using quicktime might be the mp3 import funtion. Why not using Lame here?

Why not using quicktime for rendering video, VLC for playing back video and Lame for mp3 import and export?

That would rock!

Best, Bastian

ps: Intel Q 9950, Gigabayte EP43 DS3, 8 GB RAM, System SSD Samsung 840,
2 HDD WD Caiar Black, Saffire Radeon Flex HD 6450,
Focusrite Saffire Pro 40

Latest drivers installed!

Cinebech R 11.5: 3,6, not the fastest system, but it should be able to play video within Live smoothly...

Ability to export MP3?
Hell yes.
Use VLC for video playback?
I don't know. I don't know if that would be faster or slower, or how hard that might be to program. Mite b cool.

If you like play a video with quicktime and with VLC on an older PC or Mac. You might see, that VLC plays the film smoother...
