> Everything is fine as long as the incoming and outgoing stream resolution is 640x480, but if the incoming is 1920x1080 and I do sws_scale, then decoding and scaling are very slow.
> If I run ffmpeg from the command line, I see swscale errors, which means that sws_getContext is called 20 times, which means a queue of 20 scaling threads is created

Have you tried setting "threads" option to the sws_scale context? And to
the codec context?
