... and for compressed video from the CPU.  I'd expect today's hardware
is'nt fast enouth to handle full-sized video without hand-optimized
assembler code.  xawtv 3.0 can do mjpeg compression (uses libjpeg) and
handles half-sized pal @ 25fps without much trouble on new hardware.
Hav'nt tested that code on ppc, so there might be some byte order
