by iman


why use it?

  • 2-4x as fast as libjpeg on x86, x86-64, and ARM platforms
  • 32-bit and 64-bit binaries provided for popular Linux distributions, Windows, OS X, and iOS

i used it for my zoneminder servers and decreased at least 40% of system load … .

howto :

1. download package : http://sourceforge.net/projects/libjpeg-turbo/files/
2. dpkg -i libjpeg-turbo_1.1.1_amd64.deb
