Well :) I'm not in charge of knowledge on mpeg details but I can say that
we should not make modifications on mplayer which makes decoding slower
even with 0.1% ... (imagine about hunderds of "feature extension patch"
for - let's say - two years of development. if each slows mplayer by only
a very little, it makes quite slowdown after two years ...).
And don't forget the other case either: don't make modifications which
is great for one thing, but makes broken or slower another ...
OK, this was only something development philosophy and not technial
detailed mail, as you can see.
