QuickTime Broadcaster 1.5

Apple has released , an update to the company's live encoding software for streaming audio and video over the Internet.

Version 1.5 also brings increased performance with the ability to deliver 640x480 video at 30fps. The latest version also includes enhanced 3G support to produce live events for delivery over high-speed mobile networks. It is available as a free download from Apple's Website and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later; a G5-based machines is recommended for H.264 content.

    QT BC Release

    This article may be wrong. I got the Broadcaster update on April 29th around 11 PM. It was released via Software Update.

    We need G5 PBs

    If Broadcaster 1.5 includes enhanced support for 3G mobil wireless network, and it recommends G5-based machines for H.264 delivery, then it would make a lot of sense to come out with G5 PBs, no?

    Otherwise, someone please make battery pack for G5 iMacs.
