Description: "GeeXboX 1.2.2 - feature enhancement release. With a few interesting patches recently having been committed to 2.0 development tree, people on the forum asked for backport of these to the stable 1.2 release. So did we, adding a new key feature, with multi-threaded video decoding support. Non-IT people can see this as a way to finally make use of their brand-new multi-core CPU systems providing parallelized treatment. And the results are pretty good, with a 1.8x video decoding speed boost on Core 2 Duo and 3.0x speed-up with Core 2 Quad. It is now truly possible to actually decode 1080p HDTV streams on Linux."
