what about just dropping 2-pass support for divx4/divx5, and implement
2-pass for the xvid codec. xvid support is broken anyway, i remember someone
working on ve_xvid.c, but don't remember the finish.
imho teh divx4 people (divx.com) should provide 2-pass functionality in their
closedsourec lib, or change the license of their old 2-pass code to GPL.
imho we should support xvid, rather than divx4.
they seem to don't care about linux - the linux releases are buggy and comes
ages later than win releases, not talking about missing functionality like B
btw, what's teh status of xvid now? is its development still stopped?
