Seconded. I grobbled through the mailing list but just found
scattered anectdotes as to what hardware could handle what.
It'd be cool (either as a seperate page or as part of the FAQ) if
there was a table with entries something like:
CPU, RAM, capture card, codec, resolution, paramters, 30 min file size
Enough data points might give a good idea where to aim at when looking
for hardware, or for tuning the codecs for a given amount of storage.
