    CPU usage higher than it should be on launch

    Mathemagician

      Win 7 x64

       

      When I launch SlingPlayer 2.0.4.522 CPU usage indicates about 25% and stays there until I perform the following actions:

       

      After optimization is done, go to Settings/Options/Encoding, select Manual, click Apply, wait a few seconds, select Enable SlingStream optimization, and click OK.

       

      After this, CPU usage drops to about 6% and stays there.

       

      There is no apparent loss of quality.  This only works when all video resolutions are set to Automatic.  It also happens on all 5 of my PCs.  Is there some setting I'm overlooking that would prevent this initially high CPU usage?  Thanks!
