Ok so I installed this as an alternative to WMP and I like it so far. Everything works well and it was easy to set up. Ive had one problem though. I was watching a show in 720p and my computer crashed while playing it. So I installed a cpu monitor and while trascoding there was a 50 percent load on each core of my computer and the cpu temp shot up to about 95 degrees f. So I stopped it after that and assumed that the original crash was heat related. Is there anything I can do to reduce the load while transcoding?
Im running the media server on an HP Laptop. its running a i5 540m, dual core hyperthreading. It also has a standalone Nvidia NVS 5100m in it, don't know if that makes a difference or not.
