I started out using OSXvnc on a Mac Mini (1.5 GHz Core Solo, OSX 10.4.10) over a LAN to VNC Viewer on a Windows XP machine and the performance is excellent. You almost can’t tell it from the real screen. However, I outgrew the Mac Mini, so I got an iMac (2.16 Ghz Core Duo, OSX 10.4.9) and installed the latest release of Vines. The performance coming from the same XP machine is nowhere near as good. Scrolling screens produces a wavy effect and the response of apps when dragging the cursor is very squirrelly.
This is a disaster for me because I produce commercial video training courses. When I used OSXvnc with the Mac Mini I was able to get good quality screen video recording on the XP machine. With the performance I’m getting on the iMac with Vines that’s not going to be a viable option.
Any ideas on how to improve the performance?
