I’m truly saddened by the tepid performance of my new M2 Mac Mini when converting files from .mkv and .mp4 format for streaming – it truly is not appreciably faster than my old ten-year-old Intel powered Mac! This on hardware that now includes specialised video processing modules.
Presumably the Helper application hasn’t been recompiled for Apple silicon yet and is running under Rosetta 2 Intel emulation. Very cunning no doubt, but I was expecting better.
Will we see a recompiled version soon, or should I look for some other software solution?
