MP4 video

It turns out that an MP4 video file is a tad too heavy for the MACH F to play without any hiccups. And it also turns out that MP4 files are surprisingly hard to transcode: they're not normal AVI files, so the usual tools like VirtualDub have no power over the evil spells that MP4 has cast.
Luckily, AviSynth can open any DirectShow source, and VirtualDub can work with AviSynth. And the transcoding into XVid is almost real-time.

It's been a while since I maxed out the three hyperthreaded gigahertzes my box has.
