MP3 Audio Encoding: Lame MP3
The Lame MP3 encoder was used to convert a 178 MB sound file from a WAV format to MPEG-1 Layer 3 format. The chart clearly shows that the outmoded VIA KT133A chipset lands squarely at last place. The leader of the pack is the Epox board, wih Aopen following closely on its heels.
MPEG-4 Video Encoding: Xmpeg 4.5 And Divx 5.01
