I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to decode a motion jpeg video stream (no hard-disc I/O) with a resolution of 1280*1024 at 60Hz without dropping frames. That would mean there is about 16 ms of time available for each video frame. The hardware used will be at minimum a modern laptop in performance.
The simpleplayer application at the \audio-video-codecs sample code can decode the MJPEG video.
But if you want to check the threaded JPEG decoder performance, it you can use image-codecs\uic sample code. The codec only decode one JPEG images.
