By some reason, instalation crashes on Lion, the serials they have sen´t register, and then, unrigester, and when you try to use them again they simply do not work, still waiting for support to reply, no sucess.

The accelerator works, but it's impossible to register on lion, and serials keep sayng they are already used.

Wrote the above review a couple of months ago. I just got a new MacBook Pro, and running 10.6.3, SpeedBit Video Accelerator now works flawlessly. YouTube videos download in a few seconds, and Activity Monitor shows no additional load on the system. Highly recommended.

Speedbit Video Accelerator does seem to work; video downloads are defininitely quicker. But, at least on my old G4 Powerbook, it can take over the CPU pretty completely. After charging all night I unplugged the computer, noticed that the menu bar said that I had just over an hour of battery time left. WTF? Activity Monitor showed Speedbit Video Accelerator using 89, then 90% of the CPU. Turned off SVA from the menu bar. CPU usage stayed at 90%. Quit SVA from Activity Monitor. A few seconds later it popped back up (but this time at a reasonable ~1% CPU usage). I'm not real fond of apps that, A: hog your CPU, and/or B: can't be turned off without a complete uninstall.

UPDATE: Discovered that the raging CPU problem was due to some sort of unhappy interaction with ClickToFlash, which is a flash-blocking app. ClickToFlash has an option to 'Play H264 videos in Quicktime'. If that is checked, SpeedBit Video Accelerator would have a problem, at least on my computer. Now that I've unchecked that box in ClickToFlash, SpeedBit Video Accelerator seems to work fine, with no CPU issues.
