I wrote a proof of concept P-VOP motion search algorithm for xvid
which was a big hack and only worked under win32 in August. I was
waiting on Skal to get his "slave threads" into CVS before I came up
with a workable cross-platform implementation. Hack diff is here:
However, Radek Czyz also wrote his own motion search that worked on
PVOPs and BVOPs in December. I am unsure what the status is of his work.
(These are both on the xvid-devel list, not CVS)
