Video for Windows preview very slow
Posted on 2000-03-22
I am working on an application that has a video-in-window display. The display adapter is Cougar Video Edition 32 MB, and I am using standard Video for Windows API calls.
The display is very slow, max. 6-7 fps regardless of how high a refresh rate I request. Each frame update also seems to freeze the application for about 0.1 seconds. I don't need to capture the video into an avi file, could something regarding the capture be disabled to speed up the preview? Any other ideas, (use Cougar's own functions or something, anyone know how?)
