Does it make a difference if you comment out the line
 
#define USE_FADVISE

Hi Klaus,

 

Commented out that line at line no 1442 in tools.c, and recompiled.

 

No better.

 

If I pause live video then restart it starts in slo-mo i.e. judders, and
then eventually freezes, but may then start again, still juddering ....
and freezing ...
