Default Is it bad to convert multiple files at the same time using TMPGEnc?

Besides taking forever, if I converted like 10 files at the same time from avi to mpeg2, would it damage any hardware?

I imagine that it wouldn't matter but there's absolutely no point in doing this. It'll take the same amount of time whether you encode at the same time or in succession because the cpu can only work at a maximum capacity. Simply do a batch encode of the files you want to convert.

Yes, but if I were to be afk for say.. about 24 hours, I would have to do multiple files at the same time, wouldn't I?

man, if ur disk drive was extremely fragmented, this could put quite a strain on it and would probably take a lot longer than encoding one at a time in batch mode...

Oops, I must have been reading thru that too quickly... and didn't read the part about the batch encoding... I'm stupid, lol.
