The M1 Air is silently encoding a video with ffmpeg compiled for x86_64 (under Rosetta) at 1.8x while the Intel Air is doing the same with a native binary at only ~1x (with its fan screaming)

I wonder how fast a natively compiled/optimized ffmpeg would run...

THINK Reference is like a hypertext man page viewer (Microsoft Help anyone?)

It's as if Symantec translated all the Inside Macintosh volumes from Pascal to C and added detailed explanations of struct members and stuff. I wish I had known about this months ago!
