I'd like to burn my home made movies (DV) on DVD. That's why I installed kino,
dvdauthor and the full mjpegtools package.
Installing mjpegtools on my athlon64 3000 with 512Mb and two SATA disks in
three different ways I noticed some extraordinary speed differences:
1) On my 64 bit SuSE 9.2 installation I compiled mjpegtools 1.6.2-54 (./
configure --libdir=/usr/lib64 CFLAGS=-fPIC, make, checkinstall). And YES,
NASM is installed on my system.
2) On my 64 bit SuSE 9.2 installation I downloaded and installed mjpegtools
1.6.2-54.pm.0 x86_64 from packman (using YaST)
3) On my 32 bit SuSE 9.2 installation (same machine, just another disk) I
downloaded and installed mjpegtools 1.6.2-54.pm.0 x86_64 from packman (using
When encoding a piece of video (DV avi type 2 format) tot DVD format using
Kino with the options " YUV denoise (fast)" and " mpeg2enc" I
Option 1: about 100 frames/minute (even slower than my PIII 600 Mhz)
Option 2: about 200 frames/minute
Option 3: about 650 frames/minute
I know this is not a multimedia user list and I noticed some mmx-like
optimalisations wouldn't work using 64-bit mode. But I still can't believe my
athlon 64 hardly outperforms a pentium III system.
I just like to know if anyone else had the same experience en found some way
to gain speed when encoding video in 64 bit mode.
