Best solution for multiple video players
May 30 2022 | 8:19 am
I am preparing a show with many video players and I am wondering which is the best solution for smooth playback. Some videos will have an overlay and I have chosen to work on the textures so as not to overload the cpu.I will develop the overlays and crossfades in jit.gl.pix. The videos are currently encoded in H264 Full Hd. I will use external graphics card (AMD Radeon Rx 570) with macbook pro 15 inch 2.7 Ghz i7, Max 8.3.1.
I ask for advice on three different methods:
1 Jit.playlist (with output_texture on) 2 jit.gl.polymovie 3 individual instances of jit.movie@engine viddll.
looking at the jit.gl.polymovie js code I noticed that it can use the avf or viddll engines. So if I set viddll in Max preferences jit.gl.polymovie will play videos with that codec, is that correct ? In this case option 3 makes no sense
I have in total 16 videos + 6 overlays. What could be the best solution in your experience?
