I'm using xvidcap-1.1.4p1.
Problem: xvidcap is so slow in recording mode that it is almost useless.
Example. For a 600x600 window (in single-frame or multi-frame mode and whatever codec), i'm unable to get more than 2.9 fps. While recording Xorg is eating 90% of cpu time (normal?).
In order to get 10fps, I must reduce the window size to 240x240, which is pretty much useless. At this size Xorg is eating 50% of cpu time while xdvicap is eating 10%.
Btw, my compter is not very old: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 4000+ with 4G RAM running FC6 with kernel 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6. My desktop resolution is 1600x1200 (true color).
Is this normal, or something is going wrong?
