   For Theora, as opposed to Ogg Vorbis, but mostly on the encoding side 
of things. It used to take over 60 passes to encode, now it's down to 1 
pass. There appear to be many other places the encoding/decoding process 
  for Ogg Theora can be optimized, it's surprising nobody tried before. 
btw, I didn't do this optimization, it was done by a developer at Redhat.
