Turbo.264 HD 1.1.3 released


Elgato has released version 1.1.3 update for Turbo.264 HD as well as releasing software edition of Turbo.264 HD (without the hardware-accelerating USB stick). Turbo.264 HD is an HD version of the popular Turbo.264, including HD 1080p hardware encoding. Since version 1.1, Turbo.264 HD provides software encoding, which means users can run Turbo.264 HD without the hardware key. Depending on user's Mac, software encoding may be faster, however, without a doubt it takes quite a fair bit of system resources.

Version 1.1.3 contains numerous bug fixes.
