I hope this is not the wrong list to ask this:
If just started using gstreamer for playback and noticed that there is
a plugin for vorbis-encoding as well. It works very nice, in fact,
it works better than I expected: It's at least twice (if not more) as
fast as oggenc from vorbis-tools.
Now I'd like to know why there is such a great difference. Is the
gstreamer-plugin just very well optimized, are the vorbis-tools just
very slow or is there something else that might cause thise huge impact
on speed?
Just curious. :)
