Legacy Quicktime usage

Encoding and decoding is GPU accelerated where a DirectX11 compatible GPU is present. If no GPU is present, the plugin will fall back to a slower CPU decoding / encoding method.

AVI usage

The AVI plugin uses DirectShow Filter to provide NotchLC support. Programs that utilise WIndows AVI framework will be able to utilise the NotchLC codec.
