Lower video loading time
« on: September 03, 2019, 12:47:04 AM »

Is there a way to lower video loading time or at least playing video while loading file?

Hello,

video management is performed through DirectShow which requires a certain amount of time to build the optimal filters graph, especially when using a specific decoding filter for the first time. Unfortunately there is no way to start playback while loading the same file because all of the loading time is dedicated to the filters graph building.

Kind Regards

1.5 seconds to load a mp4 video is an average time?

Hello,

yes, definitely: in some case, when many different codecs are installed, the required time (for video files only) could be up to 3 seconds: unfortunately this is not a limitation of our component bu at limitation of DirectShow modules.
