Thanks a lot. In fact I´m using mpeg. The camera which I´m using
generates mpeg data. As soon as the server sends a video block to the
client, I´m also making a copy of the sent video on the server, in a file
When I run
./client | (mplayer -)
the video plays slowly.
But when I run
the video plays correctly.
How may I know where is the problem? How may I verify if the enconder I´m
using is generating bad data?
Is it possible that the problem relies on the communication between the
client program and mplayer?
