That's no easy task. Parallelizing SAD motion search will give you a sore butt, and that's a huge understatement.

You guys (posters above me, not you Licht) need to stop getting excited over BadaBOOM.
It's not as amazing and complicated as they make it out to be - they skip many of the H.264 features and that's why it's the only CUDA video encoder around -- and also why it only encodes for iPods and stuff.

ATI is unlikely to implement CUDA because that would give NV control over a pretty important feature on their GPUs.
They could suddenly decide to ramp up licensing fees, and ATI would have no choice but to oblige.

Wait for OpenCL, stop getting worked up about CUDA.
