J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

DivXNetworks are trying to cash-in on the hype around HiDefinition. It is important to have a fast decoder, while during standard def playback you might never notice the difference between a slow and a fast codec.

The fastest decoder for H.264 is CoreAVC.

Edit: Fastest MPEG-4 ASP decoder is libavcodec (ffdshow, year 2004).

The speed of a given decoder will be about the same in any DirectShow frontend: Light Alloy, mplayer2.exe or BSPlayer.
