I'm facing performance issue during video call made between RaspberryPI3 and Laptop, the video image from RaspberryPI3 are not running smooth and the overall CPU usage consumes more than 80%. Here below is my setup:

  1. RaspberryPI3 with camera and MIC
  2. Establish video call using doubango ( from chrome browser) on both RPI3 and Laptop.

I tried the following on RaspberryPI3

  1. enabled h264ify on chrome
  2. increased GPU from 64,128,192

Is there a way to increase the video performance on RPI3? kindly help me to identify the issue. Thanks in advance

  • are you 100% sure the video call is using h264 and not vp8/vp9? Mar 12 '19 at 21:01
  • @Jaromanda: I am not saying that, my question was how to improve the video call performance from RPI3. I tried with various options ( which I have already mentioned ) with no success.

  • well ... you say you enabled h264ify - and, as the Pi has gpu acceleration of h264, I thought that may be a good place to start - make sure the video is h264 Mar 13 '19 at 8:30
  • Thanks, but either did not help, the performance remains the same there is no improvement

  • either? I only suggested one thing, so I gather you have confirmed that the video is indeed h264 Mar 13 '19 at 9:42
