"Vidcoderworker" application - Memory Allocation

Dec 18, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Running x64 Windows 7 with 8GB memory - AMD3 955 Phenom

Latest beta code 

No other applications running

Current memory allocation at runtime (Vidcoderworker.exe) ~ 800MB

Question: Can the memory allocation be changed such that Vidcoderworker.exe processing maximizes memory available / usage, therefore speeding processing without having to go out to disk (read) as often?

Thanks in advance for your response.

I believe there's some advanced x264 options that can let you do that... increase the number of lookahead frames or something like that. I don't know the specifics though. Generally the standard settings are pretty fast.
