In order to get higher speed in encoding x264,
I released a multi thread optimized encoder 1.53_MT.
Please keep in mind, it's a highly experiment version.
Users have to change the latest mencoder binary and 1.53_MT.
I put all your needs in one zip file.
Please give me some feedback about encoding fps.
As to my MDD G4 Dual 1GHz, there is 50% speed up.
I will release an Intel version later, too.
