My question is why would anyone do that on an iSeries?  OS/400 is tuned to
allow hundreds or thousands of jobs simultaneous access to millions or even
billions of records.  To see how well it squishes a video is roughly akin to
seeing how fast a tow truck is off the line (or how many tons a Lamborghini
can pull).  Wrong tool for the wrong job, IMO.  You want to squish video,
get a $700 Linux box and do it there!
