These JPEG libs are great.

I experienced a DRAMATIC reduction in load - I mean from around 1.0 to down to about 0.25 ! All I did was the following and then restarted ZM from the console. wget http://cetus.sakura.ne.jp/softlab/jpeg-x86simd/sources/jpegsrc-6b-x86simd-1.02.tar.gz tar xzvf jpegsrc-6b-x86simd-1.02.tar.gz wget http...

bttv card

It's certainly been a learning experience. Struggling this way and finally learning something is good, and I have been endeavoring to more thoroughly document my adventures , so that I can refer to my notes later. These posts are also as valuable as gold. For instance, I was able to figure out that ...

I have a picture

The picture was scrambled on just this one camera on the bt878 card. By the way, I have Ubuntu 7.10. I see some entries here on this forum where James advises the following action in similar cases: Edit your /etc/modprobe.conf file and add this line: options bttv card=77 Since I don't have a /etc/mo...

That's helpful.

Oh, you're right. It does seem to not properly detect the card at first. I thought it "fixed itself" since some cameras connected to that card do work fine under the 320*240 resolution setting, but see, I do have card=0. me@vicuna:~$ dmesg | grep card= [ 22.556592] bttv0: using: *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC ...

CPU load is high I think

I'm setting up ZM Live CD 1.22.2.1 on an AMD duron 1300 and I have two cams working. CPU load seems to hover at around 1.2 but sometimes stays up at about 30 for a few minutes at a time.

Just a guess

Maybe by specifiying a different resolution for the cameras you will achieve a better picture. Sounds like something's wrong with the height of the picture.
