Using Elephant's Dream 1080p (forgot link) as a test file,  libtheora  
was around 30% faster than FFmpeg last time I checked. This is mainly  
due to a better method of decoding DCT coefficients (FFmpeg spends  
about 25% of the decode time skipping blocks to find the block a  
coefficient belongs to) and more cache-friendly code after that.

I'm working on porting those optimizations to FFmpeg, then I'll do  
more in-depth benchmarks again.
