When MFXInit is called from an application - the application CPU usage goes up by 3-4% as seen on top command. I would have expected the CPU utilization to go up only during frame processing. I guess some threads are created by MFXInit (as inferred from MFXIntEx). Are these threads doing some kind of busy loops, which is making them take up cpu?
