Mpeg2 Movie is a complete set of tools for encoding MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 movies with video and stereo sound. It can create streams with very low bitrates as well as streams very high professional bit rates. It also supports YUV 4:2:2 for high quality. Its components were collected from obscure locations around the Internet, optimized for MMX, lower bitrates, and documented with step by step instructions.
Release Notes: Compresses MPEG-2 using YUV 4:2:2 compression for higher quality. Faster mplexlo. Some targets moved to i686 subdirectories to allow easier platform migration.
Release Notes: Insertion of optimizations into the parallel encoder; it is blinding fast on dual CPU's, with improved fixed bitrate quality.
Release Notes: This release adds a 3rd generation MPEG transcoder. It compiles and runs on Alpha.
Release Notes: SMP utilization, use of direct YUV transfers whenever possible, MPEG to MPEG transcoding, DCT optimization, and double and triple speed improvements on dual processors.
Release Notes: Optimizations for very low bitrate encoding were made.
