Got it. I haven't played with PPC OSX in a very long while, and most of the videos I was playing back then were of the DivX vein.

I know PowerPC systems were optimized for codecs of their time. The very first Sorenson video codec was optimized for QuickTime on PPC Macs, whereas CinePak was the standard for pre-PPC or 68k Macs. The VCD format, using the MPEG-1 codec, played pretty well on pre-G3 and of course all G3 Macs on up. I believe MPEG-2 video, the standard on DVDs, should be pretty easy for the G3 processor to play back as well. This is where the venerable Perian and it's cool sidekick NicePlayer shine. And as I mentioned, 3ivx helped simplify DivX SD playback and eliminate that codec's issues on PPC Macs, but mostly on G3 systems. Modern MP4 is still from that era, but it taxes G3 systems, especially at higher resolutions. G4, G5 and Intel Macs worked better with MP4 h.264, and now with h.265, only modern Macs can handle that format, up to 4k. It's been quite a road for Macs and video formats!

Keep in mind my comments and suggestions are from another era, as most of our software here at the Garden is, but they may be useful in troubleshooting your video playback issues Wink

No, don't worry, there are no playback issues - I'm quite used to squeezing everybit of use from old PPCs Smile
MPEG-2 I've always found problematic unless you have the Apple codec installed? The VLC plays it without issue.
BTW a recently compiled MPlayer does play h265 on G4s but obviously it is bitrate dependent.

Another bizarre revelation is that Safari plays video files at better efficiency than QuickTime and by a pretty big margin too!

Good observation. Here's roughly part of the story behind this discrepancy:

Although hard to believe, but this might be largely due to a very early focus on video streaming optimization since the days of dial-up! Broadcast analog video through the airwaves had always been light-years ahead of digital video since it's inception and broadcasting networks had very deep pockets to invest in the latest video technologies. Online video streaming sought to bridge that gap incrementally, first with small compressed videos along with streaming-friendly codecs and browser plug-ins. Over time, these optimizations were all integrated into the browser.

One of the big pushes Apple fought for was the deprecation of flash dependencies in their browsers. Macromedia was in the game very early on, fiercely developing its multimedia streaming flash engine. Then Adobe saw its potential and quickly took over that web-multimedia platform, all in an effort to dominate the online video streaming marketplace.

When Apple introduced the iPhone, the biggest omission was flash in Safari for iOS, and that was completely intentional. Now, flash is all but dead and buried and that was in part thanks to both Apple and HTML-5, which seamlessly integrated video playback on the web, so it's no surprise you can appreciate the efficiency of web-based playback versus program playback.

I think the answer in this case is easier as I'm not talking about Safari playing online video better but offline - dragging and dropping a video into Safari's window.
As Safari uses the QuickTime engine for video playback, I'm guessing the combination is just more efficient than the QuickTime player - iTheater and Front Row work along the same lines.
Bizarre as you'd expect the stand alone player to be extremely optimised.

Yes, Safari is a media powerhouse and no doubt it was optimized for video playback, even more so than QuickTime itself, being that more people will ever play back video files on the browser, both on-and-offline.

Here's the 3ivx OS9 plug-in, right in the Garden, along with some very useful user feedback and tips. DiVA (what an acronym!) was a OS X conversion tool used to transcode MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 videos to MPEG-4. This one would be very nice to locate again and add it to the Garden Smile

Hey! Something a tad offtopic but; do you plan to revive the "Cornica Senspack"? It's a great all-in-one utility, and maybe you could update it (I don't know if there are thing to add to the last version, but who knows)?

@cbone: As far as I know, none of the G4 Mac Minis can run OS 9 natively, if that's what you're thinking; i.e., it can only run OS 9 via the Classic Environment. I might be wrong, but that's what I recall reading.

QEMU, on Windows 7. I'm trying to set up a complete, thorough developer environment (meaning no games etc.). This experience is teaching me to have much more appreciation for the Mac mini G4 than I already previously did...

Since I'm trying to get a proper development environment, I'm prioritizing emulation accuracy, hence QEMU, and not anything else.

There's also the reason that only QEMU can target 9.2.2 and G4 processor emulation with AltiVec support (though people could try the AltiVec emulator in SheepShaver and see if that also works, and PearPC if making OS X AltiVec-powered apps). It emulating PPC64 is also cool for people crazy enough to try getting Mac OS into G5s and beyond.

I see! My own QEMU install is on a Mac Mini Core Duo, I think. It can only go up to El Capitan, which is what it has now. So you are emulating a Mac Mini G4 through QEMU and you want to set up a true development environment to program on Mac OS 9.2.2 then, right?

I totally understand why you'd want to upgrade to a real Mac, JT! Smile are you thinking of getting a G4 Mini then? Sorry I missed your reply since last month, totally dropped the ball here! Shock

Oh, don't worry, I drop the ball on looking back at topics every now and then, too.

QEMU + a dying external drive totally crapped out on me, however, so my progress on that (plus terabytes of not-too-important files) are gone, but right then, I also got my paycheck, and completely burned it on PPC Mac stuff. I don't regret it even one bit.

Now I own 3 minis, 2 MDDs, 1 PowerBook G4 1.67Ghz DLSD 15" and 1 G5 Quad (cheaper + easier + safer than bringing my stuff from Brazil, ironically, but eventually I'll bring them back here, too). Think I went a bit too wild there? Tongue

2nd MDD was an "accident", because what I really wanted was the Ti4600 Mac Edition card that came with it as part of the sale (I have already put that 2nd MDD to use, however, nonetheless. MDDs are a keeper for me as the ultimate best-performing most-expandable Mac OS machines, at least until the unlikely day I see native OS9 on G5s).

The 3rd mini, a 1.25Ghz mini, was also an "accident" in the sense it came bundled with a 1.5Ghz mini sale. The 3rd mini reeks of smoke (1.5GHz mini not as much), has a damaged GPU that displays faulty graphics, has a broken CD/DVD drive, no hard disk and its case gets dangerously stuck, but it is still useful: I took off its modem and modem port for the 1.5GHz mini, it can still be run as a server without a screen (i.e. FTP, AFP), or be remotely accessed for control from another Mac. I'll also subject it to CPU overclocking, GPU overclocking and soldering/cooling tests to give myself some knowhow, knowledge and experience for (safely) doing the same to other machines, potentially/eventually. I may also hack at the drive bay to see how successful it can be to fit certain SATA/IDE adapters that otherwise wouldn't fit. All for the knowledge gathering. Much better than discarding or throwing away the machine, as most people would.

My other mini is also 1.25Ghz, and is in excellent condition, and I'll take care of it so it remains that way.

Of course, to go along with all this, I also got myself a cheap 85Hz CRT for gaming & demoscene, and a huge high-quality LCD monitor which I intend to use for everything else. (Particularly coding.)

In any case, no more QEMU! Maybe as some odd playground for Rhapsody ~ Puma dev. tools, but even then only on PPC and, if possible, in virtualization mode (no CPU emulation). I'm just not a happy QEMU user, personally. Sad At least not until the day it becomes the "BSNES of the Macintosh", but I fear that day might never come.

Anyway, sorry for the long update. Smile But since I was asked, I felt compelled to reply adequately!

(And people reading this, who may be interested in buying old Macs, don't worry, I'm done purchasing. I plan to exclusively stick with these for life. The only exception I maybe may make is if I see an undamaged 2.7GHz DP G5, which is as rare as unicorns anyway, since most of them died from faulty cooling or improper care, or are still partially-damaged otherwise, unlike its superior dual-core cousin.)

Just so you know, in the QEMU 2.x days, I did all my video driver hacking/development for QEMU-PPC inside QEMU running CodeWarrior in 9.2.2.

Since we compiled in the dynamic video handling and updated OpenBIOS to pass the right values, I haven't had reason to work on that code further. But on a fast enough system, QEMU + OS 9 + CodeWarrior makes a pretty decent dev enviornment; especially with the latest builds of 5 with the FPU hack.

That's really damn awesome. One issue I had, though, was that I used QEMU via USB 2.0. Had I had access to an internal SSD with at least SATA III, it would have been an entirely different experience for me. I can imagine QEMU + OS 9 + CodeWarrior being an epic combination if done right.

Hearing that makes me get more excited about setting up specific QEMU dev. environments for Rhapsody ~ Puma. I'll definitely not make the "USB mistake" again.

Lol, just thought of something really crazy: wouldn't it be something if MacGarden peeps were to submit how-to vids of all of the amazingly crazy and mission-impossible level hacks and mods to Cornica on hot-rodding all of our Macs? I know it be way easier to do on YouTube, but I think it'd still be more fun to do it with our own combined resources. Heck, even if it was through YouTube, it would be sweet for sure!

Well, I've already said you're welcome to grab stuff from my YouTube channel; those videos are all made using the clickable app collection I made of every Mac OS from the original Twiggy release through Catalina.

I may do a video of my G4 Mini running OS 9 *and* Snow Leopard once that's done. That's a task that begins next weekend though. My C2D is my backup/media server, so other than running off an SSD instead of the stock Seagate drive, it's just a standard SLS install stripped down to only the file server features.

Last weekend's job was migrating my 2008 MBP over from its stock HDD to SSD. I should have done that years ago; the speed difference is amazing! The hardware recognizes it as SATA3 and the I/O is phenomenal. And as it dual boots to 10.6 and 10.11, I know that all my old OS X software will always have a place to run.

One of my other G4 Minis has another task: it's my test-bed for https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wg45xflCn8MAPvE0H4un7OmbavRNW5ql... -- it is a 10.4.11 Client machine with 9.2.2 Classic. Does a pretty good job of running most 68k and PPC Mac software headless in a VNC session, with AirFoil along for the ride to provide local audio. With the price of SSD these days, who knows? I may upgrade it to an SSD as well -- although those old PATA SSDs are extremely bus-limited.

All this to say... if you want a specific video to put up, just ask. That's how the ones I did about the Talking Moose and A Simple Beep came about.

I'd watch a dual-boot OS 9 & Snow Leo mini video. I still can't get over the novelty of it.

SSDs have done miracles on all PPC hardware I ever owned. In fact, I'm completely restraining myself not to go ham on SSDing everything, but rather doing so with only what I'll effectively use... The PATA bus, although limited, is still so good with an SSD with due adapters.

I recommend SATA M.2 Samsung EVO 860 if optimum price is what you seek. Else, if money is no concern, MLC-grade 2TB Samsung PRO SATA SSDs (2.5" form factor only), with the correct adapters used depending on the machine that is going to get it (size concerns).

SATA SLC SSDs are also out there, and are the ultimate option, but they are... not cheap, and are still rather limited in disk size capacity: https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=AF128GSSHI-OEM
I think I'll rather save up for a car and a house instead. Laughing out loud

Well, for my MBP, I picked up a 250GB SATA III Chinese knockoff (KingDian) for $45. Read/Write is rated at 564/448 MB/s. This replaces a Hitachi Travelstar 7K200 200GB drive which still sells for $56. No idea what its read/write rating is; it just shows the theoretical transfer rate of SATA I... which this thing never reached.

It's that $45 price point which makes these things a no-brainer upgrade... but again, I'm limiting to devices that actually get used regularly to prevent myself from spending way too much money. I'm also limiting the size I buy to "slightly larger than what the rust drive could do" instead of going wild and sticking 1TB SSDs in everything.

Ouch! I've been such a cheapskate Sad I 've spent just a tad over $20 for my no HD, no P/S Minis and $60 for my B-grade Android Flip Chromebook to play with my Mac software favorites. No wonder so little of my stuff works the way it should if at all! (the Minis are still no booting!)

In part, I wanted to experiment maxing out tech that's cheap enough to send overseas for youngsters to play and learn on. That's why the Chromebooks like the one I use have been of such interest to me because they easily combine old and new with a wealth of mobile apps, including my emulator as a very big bonus.

Plus I've still been tossing around the idea in my head to jimmy wither a 200 or 400gb MicroSD I have as an internal drive in one of my Minis, or other devices, like the PCMCIA slots of either my 2400c, which I think has a small SSD inside, or the Pismo I have now. I'd still need the right adapters to attempt that though, lol.

That makes total sense. I've been over-thinking the hard drive portion of the equation for quite some time now. I so want SSD for the (seeming) reliability of the good media, but it's so hard for me to ignore the large price/size difference when comparing SATA SSDs w/IDE HHDs, especially w/the adapter that's then needed to make a SATA SSD work.

Sadly, there are no PATA SSDs that surpass 512GB AFAIK (in fact, I haven't seen a 512GB one in a good while now), and certainly no MLC (let alone SLC) SSDs. The question is if you'll need all that space (or SSD longevity/durability).

I've thought about the 'big' space issue. As long as they are formatted to appropriate sizes, I'd like to have a partition with a 'vanila' system to copy over for a real quick and dirty OS reinstall. Having a partition w/boot utilities would also be nice. Different OSes that can boot w/the best software for that OS would be nice, as well as some for gaming, productivity, RAM disks, backups, etc., you know?

So off-topic, but: do we have any kind of super-utility image (I'm thinking for 68k and/or OS 9.x) to add to an emulator or real drive as a partition?

Yeah! Rescue CDs should become part of the integrated package so you can easily option-boot your Mac and from there either repair it or copy your backup system over and bless the copied system folder (once you've copied over your preferences, unless one of them is part of the problem).

If you have a separate drive for docs and other media, you could also clone your system backup and replace the corrupted drive, but that may be overkill.

I just haven't got to that part Wink

@adespoton I forgot to mention, but it turns out you're right about no adapters = cheaper. Not necessarily an absolute rule (I think my 512GB PATA SSD from Super Talent was one such exception), but it will often be the case.

OK, I decided to revisit this and I believe to have found the pattern.

If we are talking specifically about the combination of PATA and SSD, then it seems like the adapter route is always much, much cheaper.

No adapter PATA SSD - https://www.amazon.de/Transcend-TS64GPSD330-interne-64GB-schwarz/dp/B00A... (168 EUR)

mSATA SSD of same brand - https://www.amazon.de/Transcend-TS64GMSA230S-Internal-mSATA-III/dp/B07GM... (34 EUR) (!!!)

Both of these seem to be MLC, too. Turns out my Super Talent drive was most likely MLC, too. And here I thought I had always used TLC SSD with my mini... Though then again, using a Samsung 860 EVO (TLC) 1TB on my G5 Quad, it was just as amazing (though the G5 Quad had an obvious advantage since it operated with SATA I speeds instead).

But for different interfaces/technologies/form factors/etc., this ""rule"" changes up a lot. So the more research before a purchase, the better. If a vendor doesn't specify all the data/info about a drive, googling up the device/product name/code (i.e.: FE8256MD2D), followed by the word "sheet", or even "data sheet", will often be very helpful.

Wow, amazing insights! Smile

I may convert to SSD technology at some point.

I have so many dead 2.5 and 3.5 HDDs, that I now keep my irreplaceable data (personal photos and videos) on multiple cloud services and drives, and the rest of my media library is backed up on a few large HHDs. With my good cameras, I'm now shooting RAW images and 4k video too, so SSDs may be the way to go to store, playback and/or stream my content.

I've mostly picked low-hanging fruit, limiting myself to super-low deals on mostly 4-terabyte external 3.0 USB HDDs. I also invested in several SanDisk 128-200gb flash drives that offer wifi/video playback via/their app: they simply can't be beat for streaming 720p and 1080p mp4s when travelling for hours on end! And finally 200 and 400 gb SanDisk MicroSDs for their very low sale prices, storage capacity, compatibility w/my hardware and its incredible portability.

So... which PATA adapters do you recommend? When it comes to those, I'm in complete ignorance, but yeah; after posting my previous comment, I had reason to investigate getting some PATA SSDs and noticed that the prices weren't so reasonsable.

Seems to me that I might even be better off getting a PATA SD card reader and just tossing in old SD cards -- but then the price starts to climb again.

@adespoton I go a bit into detail about it in this post.

Tomorrow I plan to use Digitus (2.5" SATA adapter) on a 512GB Crucial SSD I got as an extra from purchasing an MDD, and I will also try a nameless M.2 one with a 2TB M.2 SATA Samsung 860 EVO, both on the mini.

If any of them present issues for any reason (unlikely, based on reviews & benchmarks done that confirm their success, but have yet to personally rule the possibility out), I will make sure to report back. (The last thing I'd want is anyone using unsuitable adapters because of me.)

Hey, the 2TB SSD worked flawlessly with the nameless SATA M.2 to PATA adapter. What's more, the boot problems I mentioned I had with the 512GB Super Talent PATA SSD are all gone! In the end, the issue didn't have anything to do with drive size, it was the drive firmware all along. I also can't use a 1TB LaCie FW drive for booting for the same reason.

It's so beatiful to see Mac OS working with a 2TB internal partition. Laughing out loud "1,860 GB of free space"!

(Note: I only tested this on the 1.25GHz mini, but this should apply to all G4 minis.)

I'll try the Digitus adapter after work and other duties.

@adespoton Real quick, but how cold is the room you leave your G4 mini in? I have heard that SSDs like to "run hot" during operation, and that if they operate under very low temperatures, there may be durability problems. Just a heads up. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywwtQ6kFFIc , comments have some interesting inputs.)

@Jatoba: I have my rack in a "hot cabinet" -- the room itself is around 16c, but the cabinet stays around 24c. It generally seems to work well for all my devices running off flash/solid state, and the platters don't seem to mind. The external room temp keeps things from overheating too much.

That temperature setup actually sounds ideal. No worries there, then.

Also, I just tested the Digitus adapter. It doesn't fit right on a mini, let alone on a PowerBook, so the solution is to either use M.2 or mSATA adapters, but no 2.5" adapters. Or slice open some mini plastic to fit a 2.5" drive adapter (and even then, I noticed you wouldn't be able to tighten screws).

So if you want the slightly-more-expensive, allegedly "probably better" Marvell adapter, you'll have to go with mSATA, and use either Ableconn or DeLock red board adapters, which will fit and work on minis and PowerBooks perfectly. Else, if a JM20330 adapter is fine for you (it's working perfectly well so far for me), then you have both M.2 and mSATA options.

I have not come across, seen or heard of a Marvell-based M.2 SSD SATA to PATA adapter as of yet. So if you (or anyone else) discover they exist, I'd love to know (and buy and test).

For "big macs" like the MDD, a PCI SATA card should work best, or either the StarTech adapter (Marvell) or Digitus (JM20330), among multiple other, nameless alternatives.

Righto. I just outfitted my Macs with some antigravity. I put a TB SSD where a 480GB SSD had been. Then in another Mac I put the 480 where a 240 had been, and then I put the 240 where a 120 had been. I doubled the sizes of three SSDs yet, incredibly I only bought one. This violates conservation of matter and energy. Worm hole staying open.
