We have a retired iBook G4, it plays H.264 quite laggy.

My question is what is the best video format optimizing for Battery Life on a PowerPC?

Bonus question: Is there a free batch converter for macOS to process 300+ file?

Is there a forum somewhere better suited for this kind of question?

  • Instead of the “bonus” question it would be better to ask it as another question.

MPEG4 encoded with Handbrake, or use Xvid with ffmpegX.

MacRumors PowerPC forum is definitely a better place to discuss this.
