Does this mean your frame rate is inconsistent? Is that better or worse (consistency) since moving to the new codec?
I will bore you with the details...I had been using the codec for about 20 days when our ole PC quit...The tab on the cpu socket (plastic) holding down the heat sink retention spring popped off...thus burning up the cpu in about 5 seconds....We then had to go to backup computer WIN 98 P3 866 512 meg of ram...even this slower machine played the videos smoothly for a couple of weeks til we could get the other machine rebuilt.
Revamped the case to a XP-2800 AMD Barton 1.5g ram, ATI 9600 radeon 256 meg ram. Saturday evening will be trial by fire for the new machine.
2nd With the 1.4 ghz machine...before the codec I noticed a slight delay between when you fired the cue til the movie was displayed...more noticeable when you had text on motion video...I am being picky...this would be noticed only to the operator of the computer...after the codec no delay on either machine.
Man it is tough when you are quizzed by 1 of the GURUS
