While playing back videos with ofVideoPlayer, I was surprised to see this in my Windows System Tray:
Apparently a LAV video decoder and LAV splitter are generated for each instance of ofVideoPlayer that has had its load() function called and I have 32 instances.
Is this OK, or is there a more optimal way to handle multiple instances? Also, are there are any recommended settings to improve performance? Eg. unchecking codecs not in use…? (I’m using h264)
(I’m loading videos into separate players and then play()ing and stop()ing as needed to avoid the slowdown from load()ing live).
