Slingplayer performance on Raphael
I personally think Slingplayer is one of the best applications ever for a ppc, that is if it works properly. (Personally have found this to be elusive on HTC devices and I have owned 3 of them, see signature. I Believe this is due to their poor performance when it comes to direct draw)
On my MDA Vario III for example I get between 8-12 fps on HSDPA (watchable but hardly a pleasurable experience). On the nokia n95 however it is very smooth but the symbian version does not have a "show statistics" option hence can't tell you the frame rate. The best performance I have seen on a WM device is with a DELL axim X51, the QVGA version connected via bluetooth with a nokia n70 3G (around 30 fps).
So how does it perform on the latest/greatest entry from HTC, especially at the highest resolution, say with the following settings:
Enable slingstream optimization
video resolution : 320 by 240
audio : mono low
What effect does "use GDI rendering" setting have (found in the advance section). Does it improve matters?
If you have used sling player on this device then could you please post the frames per second that you are getting at the highest resolution possible i.e. 320 by 240, both on wifi and on a 3G/HSDPA connection if possible.
Also, is the performance in full screen (landscape) just as good as in portrait mode?
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
Please try to state the fps you are consistantly getting and not subjective descriptions like "works well" or "fine" or even "superb".
Or even better post a video!
