HAP codec on Apple silicon

#1

I’m trying to find out how well is the HAP codec supported on Apple silicon. Considering the chips have also hardware acceleration for H264 and H265 I wonder what is less impact-full on the processors.

We are creating a VR experience in Unity using VDMX and will have some other processes running, so we are trying to decide in which codec to encode the videos we need. I had great experience with HAP, but that was on an Intel machine, for this project we will probably deploy a Mac Studio, but it would be good to be as efficient with our “resources”.

Any insight would be very welcome.

I think you’d want to ask @bangnoise that question. https://github.com/Vidvox/hap

I could make an educated guess, but I think they would have the best answer.
