Question : Why I am getting ~7 FPS even I have specified 30 ?

I am using raspberry pi 3 and compiled latest soruce code from the GIT and still getting low fps(~7) while using below ffmpeg command using x11grab.

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i anullsrc -f x11grab -r 30 -s 1280,720 -i :0.0+0,0 -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p -preset ultrafast -g 30 -b:v 2000k -c:a aac -ar 44100 -threads 0 -bufsize 5048k -f flv file.flv

I have tried working with -threads , -bufsize , replaced -r 30 with -framerate option still no luck and my CPU usage is ~40%

below is my output :

UPDATE: Today I have tried latest code and compiled it but still no luck

  • And what's the question? – Ingo Dec 29 '18 at 11:21
  • Why I am getting ~7 FPS even I have specified 30 ? even I have compiled latest source code from the repository. – SagarVirpara Dec 29 '18 at 11:29
