too much ram

Jun 18, 2012 at 6:03 PM

Recently tried vidcoder... i have noticed that it consumes too much ram compared to handbrake. Although handbrake runs the encoding on CLI, the consumed ram of the handbrake gui and cli combined was about around 130mb. On the other hand, vidcoder consumed about at least 240mb on my computer. I understand the vidcoder was written on .net but is there a way that it will consume less ram?

I have not examined the memory use of VidCoder recently. VidCoder has a bit of extra overhead but it shouldn't amount to more than 100 MB. What scenario are you testing? Just after launch? After launch and scan? During an encode? After an encode?

It's during an encode. I used the default advanced settings and average bitrate in video setting. Compared the handbrake while encoding , the ram difference was at least 120mb in difference.

I tried it and got about a 30 MB difference. Are you sure you're using the same encoding profile on both?
