The other day i tried [pix_movie] with a HAP file and it worked (on Mac OS), 
although with non-satisfying performance, compared to Max/Jitter.
I guess this is because it uses quicktime and the respective HAP quicktime 
My question is why the performance (frame rate) is far worse than in Max (or 
quicktime player). Is there any additional video texture transfer from/to GPU 
memory involved?
thanks, Thomas
