I haven't paid much attention to the temperature; the box has seven
fans, including one on the video board. At the moment it's 63 degc (145
degf). The slowdown threshold (reported by nvidia-setttings) is 125
degc, so I doesn't look like I'm very close to it.
I didn't know I had to pay attention to the de-interlacing settings.
Good catch, that seems to make quite a difference. It's using VDPAU
rendering, and I assumed the default settings would be close enough, but
maybe not. I just switched the deinterlacers to "One Field (1x, HW)"
and all the jitter went away. I doubt this is how we want to leave it,
so I'll do some experimenting with the settings.
Thanks for the tip, I think we're on the right track now.
This might be a good place to start.
According to the supported cards section of the wiki article your 8400GS is
a G98 chipset and should be able to do up to Temporal 2x. Advanced 1x and 2x
are out of your capabilities unless it's a SD recording.
Further down you will see other user experiences with certain card types, as
always take those with a grain of salt.
