App level threading may not help MeGUI development much either. The  
segments would have to be concatenated afterwards, which is not as trivial  
in many cases as one may wish. And selecting the segment borders may not  
take scene changes (as sensible candidates for GOP starts) into account, I  

I was just looking for MKV support in xvid_encraw and found that, when a  
symbol "XVID_MKV_OUTPUT" is defined, a file "matroska.cpp" would have to  
be included. But it seems that it does not exist. So it was probably never  
programmed yet?

And even if it were available, I wonder if you would use either the VfW  
compatible video stream tagging (like VirtualDubMod does) or the native  
one. This might be important for AviMux-GUI support as well.

The more we discuss this topic, the less important MPEG4-ASP and AVI will  
get (HEVC development is currently a bit more interesting) ... ;) -- But  
legacy players will persist for a while. Xvid is not yet dead, just about  
to retire.


Fun and success!
