VLC 0.9.2 and Toast 9 plays AVCHD smoothly on Mac September 25, 2008Posted by asimag in AVCHD, MacBook Pro, Video.
Yes, the latest release of VLC player and Toast 9.2 can play AVCHD footage quite smoothly, even full HD resolution. It can also de-interlace while playing. You may require core2duo computer. I have not tested it on other cpu’s.
If you need to convert AVCHD format to any other format like quicktime intermediate codec or Apples new proRes codec you can do so in Toast. The amazing part is that toast can convert real fast as compared to Voltac stand alone converter. In results toast is at least 50x faster than Voltac converter on Intel Macs.
