Hi, we have Wowza on a Xeon E5-2670, and have been trying the transcoder using QuickSync. I’m encountering a few issues:
Periodically the framerate drops for a few seconds, and then recovers. Sometimes this is accompanied by CPU spikes from the Java engine. The default encoder does not have the same issue.
CPU usage appears to be higher than if I use the default MainConcept encoder, which doesn’t seem right.
Thoughts? And finally:
- Will the logs reveal if QuickSync can’t be used and it switches to default? I saw the link related to issues with Wowza as a service not being able to access. How would we know if this is affecting us?
