IMO if some users really want those 7% more speed, they can always upgrade. Until then, they have no major probs, everything works.
But on the other hand, if the big majority of users have massive freeze probs, this is an absolute killer-bug.
For playing L5.1 with ref-frames > 3, it is not only 7% improvement with assembly/SSE2 enabled.
YouTube limits for ref-frames from 1 to 3, even for 4K clips. Tested experimentally.
I admit, third-party services can have a different setting.
Conducted real tests, I encoded video with 16 ref-frames.
Difference is increasing consumption of memory.
360p fullscreen (first with ref-frames = 4, second with ref-frames = 16)
720p fullscreen (first with ref-frames = 4, second with ref-frames = 16)
1080p fullscreen (first with ref-frames = 4, second with ref-frames = 16)
Tests conducted on a one core of Core2Quad (3 GHz).
