#1394 closed defect (fixed)

High CPU consumption recording MJPEG

Reported by: nonymouse Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version:
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


If I use lavrec (mjpegtools) to record a program from my Matrox G400 I get less than 1% cpu usage. However when I record using Mythtv the cpu consumption goes up to over 90%.

Why would that be? Surely MythTV would/should simply transfer the MJPEG frames into the container of its choice (ie. NuppelVideo?), and only perform a conversion if absolutely necessary. There is often absolutely no need to convert from MJPEG to anything in software for playback either (when using lavplay for example).

And why isn't there a simple configuration file which can be used to set up relevent command lines for various activities (like recording, playback, etc)?

And why isn't a simple, well supported, video format like avi used (or an extension of it)? If the issue is timecode then avi can handle it in a compatible manner.
