I have both "enable interlaced dct encoding" and "enable interlaced motion
est" on for my sw encoding profile.
Is this one or both of those options?

The high cpu utlilization can probably be explained by this, but it doesn't
explain why it only happends to some of the analog recordings and why the
video got all blocky and messed up.

And then there is that strange v4l2 error from the backend when a recorindg
starts that get corrupted.
