These helped in CPU usage but since these did not really solve the problem I 
did not spend too much time with them. What I did notice is that if these 
flags are changed on the fly it can lead to distortion. Don't remember 
offhand if it was skip_frame or skip_loop_filter. This is most likely 
something I just need to deal with myself and not necessarily related to 
ffmpeg internals.

If I do get back to using them and notice a problem I can't deal with, then 
I will upload a sample.
