@mdps You asked this question quite a long time ago, but I'm really interested if you find a solution. I am trying to start recording my cameras after an OpenHAB event occures.

CPU usage and hardware accelleration
After getting tired of the bulky and prehistoric ZM, I'm now
using Shinobi. My first impressions are very positive (kudos!) but I need some help with setting up my camera's and hardware acceleration. My target is reducing CPU usage and the best possible video quality. My setup:
- 64 bit Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7260U CPU @ 2.20GHz,
- 16 GB * DDR4,
- HDD M.2 SSD
- Ubuntu server 18.4 LTS
- MySQL Server 5.7.25 (latest for Ubuntu)
- FFMPEG 3.4.4 (latest for Ubuntu)
- 3x Foscam camera FI9901 (1080P, Ethernet) 10fps/VBR
After a clean Shinobi install, I added my cameras with automatic ONVIF detection. Everything is running fine but...
CPU usage of 35% with only three camera's...
I did some experiments with hardware accelleration, but without success. The CPU load did not decreased or even my camaras died.
When starting up, Shinobi shows: Available Hardware Acceleration Methods : cuvid
Is it possible to reduce the CPU usage and make Shinobi more responsive?
