Hello,

I want to convert some videos taken by my camera from 1080p to 480p so they will play smoother on my older iMac G5 running OS X Tiger (10.4.11). I can't seem to get the HandBrake program to work. I've heard that there's a program called VoltaicHD that might help, but it doesn't run on 10.4.11. I'd really like to play the videos, but how?

Thanks in advance.


Regards, iMacg3

Which version of HandBrake are you using? It would appear from the HandBrake site that the "newest" version of Handbrake that will support a PPC chip is 0.9.4. All the newer versions don't appear to offer a PPC version (a G5 processor is a PPC processor), but only versions that will support Intel chips. Here is the page with older versions:

I am using HandBrake 0.9. It opens and "works", but  can't seem to recognize my videos. Anyway, I got the problem solved by taking the videos and transferring them to my newer macbook and converting them to 480p with QuickTime player. Thanks!
