Encoding efficiency decrease with 0.8?
After using 0.7 for a while and enjoying good results, I decided to
upgrade to CVS. I was very surprised to find that my recording
settings, which worked very well on my system with 0.7, do not work well
in the current CVS. My settings:
MP3 quality 0
Athlon 1600 XP
WD 120 GB/7200 RPM HD
GeForce4 MX 440
Hercules Fortissimo III/Alsa drivers (output only)
WinTV-Radio PCI (btaudio capture)
Redhat 8.0, custom kernel 2.4.20
With 0.7, there was no stuttering in the audio. Now with 0.8, I have
choppy audio watching LiveTV unless I reduce the capture to 320x240 with
MP3 quality at least 7.
Also, I tried MPEG-4, and while I don't get stuttering audio, the
picture has bad pixelization at all bitrates and quality levels.
