View Full Version : ffmpeg library and choppy video playback...

03 March 2005, 01:24 PM
My company is currently working on a simple game which makes use of the ffmpeg library. We have huge troubles with MPEG-1 encoded video files. Even on very fast computers both the video and the audio playback is terribly choppy in our game. When the audio is removed, the playback is closer to fluent.
The only way to make playback "un-choppy" is using "monster quality deterioration settings" which make both the eyes and the ears bleed.
I guess we're doing something wrong, because the library is succesfully implemented in a lot of (Linux) players.

We've got a fixed target platform:

Intel Celeron 1.2 GHz
256 MB RAM (I guess... :-/)
Windows XP embedded on a Compact Flash card
An early ATI Radeon embedded (7200 I guess...)

But as I stated above, on all of our computers with way better specs, the video playback is terrible and we played arround with many, many different encoding settings, no success so far.

Does anybode have an idea what the problem might be?

I'd appreciate any hint, so thanks in advance!
