Well... wasn't the original intent of ffmpeg to grab video from a TV 
card, encode it and send it off over the network? ;-) And then there's 
the PVR guys, not all of whom have hardware encoders...

Just teasing... obviously, decoding performance is still a lot more 
critical than encoding performance...
