Your video work got me interested here.

Do you see or know of other benefits than speed in xfs?

As for constant writing and erasing of big files,

possible advantage in speed has not much relevance for me, but maybe
there are other benefits in xfs there?

Downloading a lot of iso files via torrent and deleting them?
