Hi David,

Yeh at the moment, from all indications, it is a CPU bottleneck. Now perhaps
ECU will one day (soon?) support VIDEC compression which is built into the
CQC. Probably all those cycles are going for doing compression in software...

Maybe we'll hear from White Pine and Connectix on this problem...
