I am using ffmpeg to convert avi’s and asf files to dvd files, simply because i like to watch shows with my dvd player, and my player is not able to play avi’s and what not.
I am running a Debian unstable box using ffmpeg from http://www.debian-multimedia.org/
And is it ever slow!
I decided to grab the sources from http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/download.html and compile them for personal usage.
I used checkinstall to create my Debian package, installed it and finally ffmpeg is running as it should, its at least 3 times faster.
Personally I would like to kick the Debian packager of ffmpeg, what the ***** are you doing to make ffmpeg so slow ??
