Ok, so you have one machine that decodes, and another that encodes. In
between the video is uncompressed, right?
Then how are you going to transmit video form one machine to another?
Yes, I know, you have network, but this is REALLY some data. Let's see
640x272  24bpp  25.000 fps video. Thats 640*272*3=522240 bytes per
frame, 25 frames per second. Suppose the movie is 2 hours long. That
means you have 522240*25*60*60*2=87 GB of data to transmit via network.
How long is that going to take? I don't think it's gonna be much faster
than encoding at a single machine.
