I just tried http://libjpeg-turbo.virtualgl.org/ which is a drop in
replacement for libjpeg, and it bumped our performance to ~2.7 msec per
frame (i.e. 55% faster than ffmpeg), while still keeping the better
compression (of course the compression can be tuned by changing the
By using libjpeg-turbo specific extensions (JCS_EXT_XBGR) we can get
even better performance since we can avoid a type conversion. Didn't try
