The performance of frame-based threading is limited by the vertical
resolution of a video (at least on video formats which are compressed
in raster order, i.e. nearly everything).  Therefore, you want to
maximize the vertical resolution of videos to maximize parallelism
possibilities, particularly for encoding.
