A fractal video encoder/decoder demo, which can transcode unencrypted DVDs into GWFrac's fractal video format (FVF). Fractal compression is an excellent example on how GPUs can be used to accelerate application processing. Running GWFrac on two AMD RV770s (4850s) is 50 times faster than a quad-core 3Ghz CPU.
