Hi everybody.

I need to know which is the best video format for capture a compressed video with Xvid Codec and using a domestic Firewire DV video cam.

Like a sony tvr22e

RGB24, YUV, ......

I need to reduce my CPU load and increase the final video file quality, now i use RGB24 720x576.

maybe can i use other codec???

Best regards and you have a very powefull activex, nice work. :)

Hello Alberto.

the YUV formats need less memory than the RGB 24 format. Therefore the CPU has less memory to convert. This is the only tip i can give you.

Ok, Thanks a lot,.

but what about the Quality ??? YUV has the same final results ?? using Xvid codec.

Yes. Most cameras procude YUV formats, that are transformed by the driver to RGB
