Crazy Distributed Computing App x264

It was designed to be extremely portable; the only things you need on most of the computers is the agent program (supplied) and x264. All the AVIsynth processing is done by a central computer. I have personally tested it running on a Windows x64 computer, a 64-bit Linux box, and an Intel Mac Mini.

The idea is similar to tobias's ELDER, but designed from the ground up to be used on the network. It also supports fun stuff like resuming encodes (sometimes with a big penalty, but it's better than starting over)
If any of you have used x264 to encode videos you know that it can be very demanding for any one computer. This person has created a way to break down video files into small chunks and encode over multiple PCs. I though it was neat anyway.

Well thats pretty much it. Looks pretty neat. Not as good as a folding farm though lol.
