Some of Giorgio's commits were meant to increase hash function speed: http://git.videolan.org/?p=ffmpeg.git;a=search;s=vazzana;st=author There is an email with a script to compare the implementation's speeds, I don't know when it was sent to the development mailing list though. > I've noticed, for example that "-f hash" for MD5 uses only half, SHA256 > just a quarter of my CPU. Command line and complete, uncut console output missing.
