New computer, same camstudio settings - worse quality
I have been using camstudio (2.0 version) for a good year on my old computer.
A few days ago I received a new computer, I used the same codec and applied the same settings to camstudio, and the quality of the files is absolutely horrid (it lags and freezes).
My old computer was running amd x2 5000+, 2 gig ram, win xp. New one: amd fx 8350, 16 gb ram, win 8
I have also tried camstudio on my relatively new laptop with i3 2300, 4gig ram, win 7, and the quality of the files are worse than on my old computer, but better than those I get on the new one, with the same codec and settings applied.
The codec I have been using is the Divx 6. 9. 2 codec.
I noticed that the number of logical cpus differs:
Old one had dual core processor, it says "2 logical cpus"
New one has 8 core, it says "8 logical cpus". You get the idea....
Not sure if these things are of importance but I'm leaving the info here anyway.
I should also add that I have tried the lates camstudio version, and I have tried playing with the configurations, but with no luck, the quality is still crap.
I'm thinking the different operative systems may be the reason, but I am not sure...
Any help is greatly appreciated.
