HAP codec on Apple silicon


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.
