Instead of moderating up a few articles I should have moved days ago, I'll keep them in the Unmoderated section and just provide links to them here, in case you didn't see them.
Quickshots : Comment 1 of 4ANN.lu

Regarding the Divx/3ivx stuff, playback is still different to encoding, and requires a CPU an order of magnitude less powerful. Still, unless you want to play back low res movies instead of decent quality movies, it will still jerk and be generally naff even on a 200MHz+ PPC.
Still it would be nice to get this on the AmigaDE.
When are they going to jazz up the AmigaDE desktop? I know they are working on the important underlying stuff at the moment before creating a good desktop environment, but they will have to release one soon...

Bill McEwen gave an interview to Amiga-News.de where he stated that there will be a new SDK ultimo February with 3D and sound. Maybe there will be interface updates as well.

I don't see why a 200 Mhz PPC could not encode mpeg4.
I managed to render raytracing movies for weeks on my A2000 68000 7mhz. I did 1Gb + of CDXL while exporting movieshop scenes for days.
I let my amiga render a vista pro scene for a week ....
My Amiga like to be feed :)

From http://www4.tomshardware.com/video/00q3/000913/dvd-03.html :
"One thing must be made very clear at this point: Playback of MPEG-4 encoded video movies requires very sophisticated hardware. In our test we used a system containing an AMD Thunderbird with 800 MHz and 128 MB of memory. After all, at full screen playback (1024 x 768 x 16) of the video encoded with 720 x 576, the CPU load under Windows 2000 was almost at 80 percent. However, friends of socket7 platforms are going to be disappointed: When we tested it with an AMD K6-2/450 the playback was not smooth.
Encoding MPEG-2 files with the FlaskMpeg program requires even more computing power. Completely converting a DVD video into MPEG-4 format usually takes about 10 hours. Again, the speed greatly depends on the processor used. Otherwise the system requirements for converting video from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 format are relatively low."
