Hardware Decoder

Are those the machines that had the hardware decoder, and thus had been left in the dust?
If so, does this update make the PowerBook (Bronze) finally work? I just HAVE to know (can't wait to get home to try it).

The B&W G3s have a Rage 128, yet it only has a PCI bus. So Apple cannot use the old excuse that its DVD Player software only runs on machines with AGP. But the update still does support not support older machines that have the Rage Pro. So no Lombard, no Wallstreet, no Gossamer, and a few other older machines (can't Apple hasn't fully supported their own machines that are only 2-3 years old!)

I guess one needs to either complain their head off or wait. People with PCI G4s were moaning and groaning and now look.
