Set default processor affinity

Hi all,

Is it possible to add a preference option to tell VidCoderWorker to only run on certain processor cores? It would be great to not have to reset this every time via task manager.

Thanks! Will.

Is it important that you be able to pick the specific cores to have affinity to, or do you just want to limit the process to using a certain number of cores?

I want to limit it to, say, 10 of 12 cores - that way, I can have my rips running, while my machine remains (mostly) responsive. I don't care about limiting it to cores 2-11, for instance...

Have you tried using the process priority option? That's exactly what it's supposed to do: yield the CPU to other tasks when they ask for them. In my experience it's very good at getting out of the way and letting other processes do their thing.

I've tried playing with it, without much success - so far my best solution has been to set the worker to high priority, but peel off two cores for the computer. I'll play around with the worker priority option a but more and see if that gets me what I'm looking for. Thanks! Will.

You'd want to set it to a lower priority for it to share processor cycles with the computer better.
