In theory, you could use opencl for the deshake and
the unsharp filters but I don't know if sufficiently
new OpenCL drivers exist.

Unrelated to your question:
I suspect that deinterlacing (yadif) is faster with
FFmpeg than MEncoder.

Given that MEncoder uses the exact same source code
to encode ffvhuff and ljpeg (and most probably "etc")
how do you expect that FFmpeg could be faster?
Allow me to repeat that since MEncoder is not
actively maintained, it makes no sense to use it if
you don't have very special needs (like binary
codecs but you should be able to use them with
mplayer -vo yuv4mpeg and FFmpeg).
