I already tried it, no improvements. Massive lags, audio is extremely async and the frames of the stream is going down 7 -22fps
this seems to be the reason for the lags and async audio.
CPU is very low, 8-15% and the RAM usage is about 43% but the system is running 24/7 so it is a normal RAM usage
I turned off hardwaredecoder (amcodec) and it can keep the frames up, still unwatchable but better. So if you can improve the amcodec again with VC1 as it was once before this would be great. As we said last time this problem was software decoder is to weak for VC1.
When you say that you are ripping your own discs do you mean you just rip them of the disc to your hard drive and create a 1:1 copy or do you actually encode the content on the disc ? If you are actually encoding yourself then you should switch to h264( x246) from VC1. If the discs you are ripping are VC1 you must be ripping some pretty old discs because VC1 is obsolete in 2017 and there weren’t any commercial releases using this old codec in a long time.
There are a view new movies also using this codec but movies i testet are a bit older. The most Harry Potter movies are using VC-1, Twilight was using this codec etc. so they are a bit older but i always check the codec when my niece tells me the video doesn’t run smooth.
ok, but why is such an old codec that problematic to play smooth? Is this codec that performance intense? with my vero4k these movies run smooth but someday after an update they doesn’t run smooth but i can’t check every movie after every update.
Oh I understand im sorry well I feel your pain specially since you are ripping your own collection. I would not know why VC-1 is more intense on the hardware then AVC. My guess would be its older and has seen no optimization for a long time now
