Hi Prakash,

well I've got an AMD Athlon64 3000+, CPU load during encoding is 100% ;-),
while replaying I got different values with gmplayer (about 50 to 60%) and 
xine (100%, dropping frames, sometimes missing audio).
With the original mpeg2-file (*.vdr), xine is able to play audio too, but 
CPU-load is similar.
So far I don't know why xine is 'slower'.
It's the first attempt to record and play HDTV-material.
