Most efficient display method
Posted on 2003-03-06
I have an client server app in which the server receives raw RGB video frames (384 x 288). It then passes a pointer to this frame to the client via WM_COPYDATA that now displays the frame.
At this stage I use DrawDibDraw to display the frames received. However when the video rate reaches about 100 frames per sec the display of the video consumes about 50% of the available cpu resources (Intel PIV 2.4 GHz on Win2000 prof).
Are there more efficient ways of displaying these RGB frames that would be less cpu processor intensive ? If possible please give some examples, or links to examples.
