Memory and CPU usage test results.
January 17, 2003 01:56AM
I decided for kicks to do a comparison between Winamp, CoolPlayer, and the basic MAD decoder sofware. All were played with the same song (Blink 182 - Anthem Part 2) encoded in VBR (avg around 160 kbps) with LAME. The following results were obtained with WinXP task manager on a 1700+ AMD. These are the results:

Winamp:
CPU use durring decode = 6% spikes at 7 sec intervals
Mem use above background durring play = 4.8 MB
Mem use above background durring stop = 4.2 MB
MAD mem usage during decode (play - stop) = .6 MB

Coolplayer:
CPU use durring decode = Normaly 11% spikes at 7 sec intervals
Mem use above background durring play = 2.2 MB
Mem use above background durring stop = 1.8 MB
MAD mem usage during decode (play - stop) = .4 MB

MADplay:
CPU use durring decode = 2% - 8% fluxuations
Mem use above background durring play = .7 MB
Mem use above background durring stop = 0 MB
MAD mem usage during decode (play - stop) = .7 MB

Madplay results were inacurate due to it being in a Command window. The question is "Is it better to have less memory use but more CPU use or less memory use and more CPU use?" Which is better say for taxing games. Just wondered.



Will someone use winelib and port it to Linux if you know linux?

To all you whiners wanting lots of function and extra code chew on this:
K.I.S.S.

On my 2000+ Winamp gets a maximum of 2% and CoolPlayer doesn't even register.
