Yes and no. It is true this can cause harm, but so far it is the only 
way to get smooth HuffYUV captures. I did not mean it has to run all the 
time -- just enable it before capture and disable afterwards.
Without, HUffYUV capture -- on my box -- doesn't work smoothly. More 
exactly this is not the capture itself, but the disk transfer which hogs 
periodically the system.


PS: On the other way, ffv1rec from avidemux2 is constantly flusing 
during capture, so there is no disk transfer bottleneck. Sadly enough, 
it does only YV12 colorspace.
