Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827415
High CPU usage in totem
Last modified: 2013-07-31 16:36:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Totem seems to be uses much more CPU than other players (and even the totem of F16, from memory). Playing a 640x480 xvid avi in totem uses ~20% of CPU while gst123 uses about 6~7%, VLC uses 7-9%, and mplayer (using xv) about 7%. Playing a 1080p H.264 video uses over 100% in totem, 60% in VLC and 65% in gst123.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I've downgraded to Totem 3.2 and the problem exists as well. Downgraded to Totem 3.0.1 and the CPU usage is back to normal values. I suspect it is because of clutter-gst, because totem 3.0.1 used Xv.
This is becoming a real issue with the use of clutter-gst in totem. I've posted before in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=753022 on stuttering videos in totem due to clutter-gst. I just can't see the benefit of using it if uses considerably more CPU than Xv.
Same for me here on a i686.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
