testing the performance of a decoder
Posted on 2007-03-19
Given many choices of decoder to use, it is very hard to determine the performance of each decoder in an objective way.
Currently I am writing an application using directshow which will capture frame rates output by the decoder. Its use is to measure the performance of the decoder, since a bad performance decoder will overload the cpu, therefore will drop frames producing low frame rates.
Is there any other good/popular way to test the performance of a decoder, and what conclusion can be drawn from that particular result?
