I am using xine as a CD player, and I noticed that it was using 60 to
70% of my CPU time. This was not surprising, because the goom
visualisation was going; it is obvious that that is going to hog a lot
I pressed 'h' to close the video window, and noticed that the xine CPU
usage did not change. From this I surmise that, even when the video
window is closed, the goom post-processing plugin is still working.
It's just not displaying the output. When I changed the visualisation
to something CPU-friendly (oscilloscope), the xine CPU usage dropped to
This strikes me as somewhat inefficient. Would it be feasible to truly
disable the visualisation post-processing plugin when the video window
is closed? I think this would be better, if it could be done.
I guess no-one noticed this before because everybody else uses xine for
streams with video!
P.S. The controls window still moves of its own accord when I close the
video window! :)
