 FFmpeg's implementation is fixed-point (which is what you expect for a
 lossless codec) meaning you can compile it for any hardware with any

 Thats not an excuse to be slower on x86 though, also making
 softfloat_mul() 30% faster by using floats has no meassureable effect on
 the overall speed (with the file i tested).
 did someone compare the decoders part by part speedwise ?
