Happy Holydays to everybody.
The place where I am working has a very specific project (sorry, we cannot give too much detail, I hope you understand). It is needed to watch several streams of video or images over the network. The camera we are using is this one:
The problem is that Firefox eats up to 95%CPU power when watching this four streams, thus lowering the frame rate and making a sluggish user interaction, so is for IE.
The time has arrived to expand the project and have several streams (more than four). Now I have to consider different systems for this approach, including closed-source solutions. Of course, as a linux enthusiastm, I'd love to base our software ontop of GStreamer.
The first question for the GStreamer developers is How much CPU power can consume a GStreamer application that has 10 or more streams playing and recording to disk? What are the system requirements to handle this kind of load? I have not been able to do check that yet because of my lack of proficiency with GStreamer.
That's the reason I am contacting you.
Thanks in advance
Previously, I tried to contact Immendio to request their support, but it seems that their mail server is down or something (Undeliverable mail). Immendio people: I still want to get in touch with you.
