I noticed this strange behaviour while debugging my code, then tried the “playstream” example and found out it is there too.
After opening a stream for playing (it doesn’t matter what type of audio file it is) the cpu usage goes near 100%, and stays there even once the sound has been stopped and successfully released. My machine has 2 processors (G5, 2 GHz), and it appears to have one of them at full load and the other one around 30%, varying quite randomly. You can tell it is not a matter of meter (it is the very handy menuMeters, by the way) because the fans start spinning quite loudly). The getCPUUsage reports more or less 1% for total FMOD cpu, so what is happening?
Of course quitting the prog restores immediately the cpu to 0%.
This happens with 4.00.32 and 4.00.33
