ok, ?irrelevant? is a bit exaggerated. I meant I don't care if the encoder can't encode in realtime. But it would be good to get it make use of all the cores my computer has to save energy. Because the cores are paid and could be used.
A multithreaded decoder isn't bad either.

This is because of simplicity. As I told earlier I want to have a codec to archive my private videos. There are some files that I want to keep in original quality my camera produced. I could stay with ffv1 but to have all the hundrets or thousand files of video coded with the same codec sounds simpler.

Please take all my point only as wishes.
And there came some other questions to my mind:

- which color spaces are supported in which depths?

Maybe some of my future cams record video not only in YV12?
