[vlc-devel] codec/encoding settings request

We are currently using VLC as the mainstream video player for a corporate
IPTV broadcast in SD, with 9000 users. In general, people are very satisfied
with the overall system, especially with the CPU utilization being order of
magnitude lower than the MS counterpart (which makes a lot of people
delighted here)..

However, there are a few issues like lipsync, pixellation, and interlace,
which begin 1-2 hours after the encoder starts. The customer is just
restarting the encoder (vlc 1.1.7) every time they detect a problem and that
fixes the issue for some more time. I was wondering if there is a known
issue with the particular codec they are using.. and if someone could
recommend a better codec/setting to give a try, that would be definitely
worth testing.

Here are the encoder settings:

C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC>"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe"
 :dshow-vdev="Osprey-210 Video Device 1" :dshow-adev="Osprey-210 Audio
Device 1L" :dshow-caching=600 :dshow-vdev= :dshow-adev= :dshow-size=
 :dshow-chroma= :dshow-fps=0 :no-dshow-config :no-dshow-tuner
:dshow-tuner-channel=0 :dshow-tuner-country=0 :dshow-tuner-input=0
:dshow-video-output=-1 :dshow-audio-input=-1 :dshow-audio-output=-1
:dshow-amtuner-mode=1 :dshow-audio-channels=0 :dshow-audio-samplerate=0
:dshow-audio-bitspersample=0 :dshow-caching=600

Kindest regards,
