True.  But this is in a car and composite still makes sense.

1) small monitors - two 9" and one 5"
2) small wiring - it's really, really hard to snake an RCA connector
through some of the places in a car.  A DVI connector would be orders of
magnitude harder or downright impossible.  And hand-assembing a DVI
connector is not something I want to contemplate.
3) cheap, easy splitters

As with everything, there's a time and a place for cheap low tech.

As for transcoding, I'd really like to just copy the videos from the main
backend without transcoding so that's the reason why I'm trying to get
x264 working as-is.  The videos change from trip to trip, and transcoding
is something I'd rather not do.
