There are two things affecting its performance:
* Video frame compression in PNG format
- Faster CPU or SIMD accelerated PNG library could help
* Disk write speed
- Faster disk (RAID array?) would help
 PNG compression isn't something that's easily SIMD accelerated
unlike e.g. JPEG which is matrix based compression method.
