Video Encoding

DivX 6.5.1 with XMPEG 5.03

This test uses the latest DivX codec that supports multi-threaded encoding on the XMPEG application for easy encoding setup.  Here we had a 2 GB video that we asked XMPEG to convert the first 10,000 frames to DivX.

The encoding tests are neck and neck again. The fact that the ECS slightly edges out its more expensive counterpart in all the tests so far, is very encouraging.
