Hi. I'm interested in knowing if it's possible to use openMosix,  
DistrIT, or something like that, to distribute or parallelize  
Mencoder? I understand that this isn't an incredibly easy thing to  
ask for, especially when someone is working with a task like  
mencoder, but is there a way to split up the individual tasks, like  
having one machine work on audio, one machine on video resizing/ 
filters, one machine on compression, anything like that?

Also, would it be possible to have this work in an environment of  
mixed systems/archetectures? I'm running Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X  
machines on my LAN, and with lots of idle CPU power sitting around, I  
figure I might try and distribute the load.
