BUG: Trouble capturing ffmpeg movie 640x480 at 25fps.
I have trouble capturing ffmpeg movie 640x480 @ 25fps. I have bt878 card (Hauppauge WinTV
? Express), AMD 2000+ processor and 512MB of memory. I'm using Linux kernel version 2.6.9-rc3 with kraxel bttv patch. Debian GNU/Linux Sarge (testing) distribution. FFMpeg tools are from ftp.nerim.net, and version is 0.4.8-sarge0.0.
Symptoms are dropped frames in mpeg/avi files, as seen on frame counter on the bottom right corner. About 1-10 dropped frames in 2 second. I have tried with lower resolutions and codecs, but no change.
Another problem is, when trying to capture 768x576 @ 25fps, the resulting mpeg file is fast-forward like movie.

We are in the process of optimizing motion.
And we will also eventually have motion made for ffmpeg-0.4.9 (mpeg4 only). So I propose you try again when the next versions are released.
No point keeping this open. It is obviously a performance problem which is continuously being addressed and has been addresssed by many changes in the 3.1.18 snap series.
However there is a limit to what can be done even with fast computers.
Feel free to continue adding to this report even if it is in released state.
The ffmpeg-0.4.9 is available in 3.1.18_snap8 MotionRelease3x1x18snap8
