Just fyi there are already assembly versions of the critical functions
available in the vp3 codec tree, for Windows and Macintosh. The current
theora code however uses the slower C functions, for portability. I believe
in the future (after 1.0 or very close to it) it may be possible to add
these assembler files back to the tree at least for platform-specific
builds, but this is the kind of work that really belongs to the end of the
I don't think VP3 is a slow codec. It is too early in the theora cycle to
tell what the real performance will be, and where to optimize. If the VP3
code base is any indication it can perform very fast even on relatively low
end systems (PII 300 or so.)
