[FFmpeg-devel] transcoding on nvidia tesla

I can make a significant contribution to get this going, and purchase a card
or two for development testing.

When it comes to converting thousands of videos per second/minute on one or
two teslas, versus 10,000 servers across 10 datacenters, using kilowatts of
power, the costs associated with several of these servers become irrelevant.

I guess the real question is if it's possible, how long it would take, and
how much I would have to contribute :)

Based on my understanding of how well the developers of ffmpeg, have made
ffmpeg the de facto video conversion application, I think it's safe to say
they can do this too.

With a tesla or two, you could be transcoding thousands of HD streams

Oh good, another machine for the build farm. I have been reviewing the
literature and I don't think this would be a basic recompile.

But it you're willing to lay out the US$1600 for the card, let us know
your status. :)
