The computer that is running the feed gets loaded up pretty fast, memory and CPU usage go through the roof after about 8 hours. I have to restart it at least twice a day. I thinking more RAM might help but haven't looked into getting any yet. This is a second hand computer that I had to rebuild just to get it to run at all.
I called home and had my 7-year-old restart it (see how easy Dave's software is to use!) this afternoon and it sounds better now.
This shouldn't happen...does this computer run an AMD processor, by chance? For some odd and undiscovered reason, *some* people with AMD processors seem to have trouble like this. Others have no trouble. The memory requirements for Stream Transcoder are pretty modest by today's standards...a copy on a Windows 2000 machine I just checked was taking up about 6MB of RAM. How much RAM does that PC have? And what is the processor type and speed?
Based on my experience, the issue is more likely CPU starvation, but it's hard to tell from here.
