I created a new recording where the SegmentDuration is 3600s, which gives me roughly 400MB segment files.
I noticed that in the beginning of the recording, the video plays out OK, with no jumps or skips.
After the video has been recording for a while (6+ hours), the player becomes very slow and video sometimes freezes on the screen, and then continues in a choppy manner.
On the client, the CPU usage spikes up when these freezes happen, in the 50-60% usage range. I’ve seen the same results in parallel on 2 systems (Pentium D 3.2GHz HT, and Core2 Duo 2GHz). I have also tried a server directly connected to the FMS switch to rule out any network congestion.
