WebpageTest Videos
Hey Patrick,

Long time user, first time writer.

First off I'd like to say that the new video capture option is an outstanding feature, however, I am curious if you or anyone else have tested (or noticed) the influence it has on the end results.

I have been running tests this evening and noticed that the TTFBs (and thus, the rest of the tests) seem to be 1.5x - 2x slower with the Capture Video option selected. In some cases it is making almost a 1s difference to total load time. From what I can tell, it may be spiking the CPU on the test machine(s)?

Here are some tests that I ran, one of which is a site in development and another site that is on a separate server and is live in production:

1st example)
With Video:
Without Video:

2nd example)
With Video:
Without Video:

Thanks for such an amazing tool.
