As mining profits shrink I'm trying to think of some other cool ways to use my system. I noticed that DVD Fab and a few other applications can utilize ATI GPUs for converting video. I wonder if I can put the 10k+ stream proccessors in my mine cart to use compressing blurays in a few minutes time. Anyone have any experience with these applications? Do they support multiple GPU's? Any Linux based software out there?
