I've read a thread in the mailing list about theora's poor encoding speed which makes it an unsuitable candidate for live video applications.  

To improve the codec performance, I would like to volunteer to add SSE2 assembly support via C/C++ intrinsics, which should also improve portability. As a first step, I'll be converting the existing MMX and MMXEXT assembly code. 

Is anyone else working on this? If this sounds good, I'll start work soon.
