Hi there,

I just started using the VLC Streamer + Helper apps.
I noticed the helper app uses a lot of CPU bandwidth when processing movies into the queue.

Is there any plans of using GPUs for encoding?
If not, I'd love to contribute in some way/form.

Thanks,

Hi,

the streamer uses VLC to do the encoding. You can check the exact command by looking in the working folder and finding the folder for any generated movie.

iirc, VLC now uses hardware decoding where possible. I don't know anything about gpu usage though.

the VLC forum is the place to go if you want to get stuck in on that though http://forum.videolan.org

thanks
