Hmm, something wrong with the time it's taking to encode there.

Are you encoding as VCD or SVCD? Also what picture quality setting are you choosing in the Eazy VCD Gui?

Remember, before you rip/encode a film it's always wise to reboot your system right before, disable A/V software and anything else running in the background that may be using vital resources. The size of your RAM is fine, some people say that 256 mb is the optimum size for encoding. Put it this way, when I use my Vaio laptop with a 1gig Duron & 256mb RAM it takes about 4 hrs per average film to VCD using Eazy VCD. Another thing that will speed your encode times up slightly is to start up TMPGEnc > Option > Prieview Option > And make sure "Do not display" is ticked.

Thanks for all the replies. (BTW - If I could get a p3.9, i'd be stoked, but I, my friend, am broked!)

I'm encoding a VCD, picture setting video bitrate 1150 , audio 224. I've disabled everything. my system resources are at 82%. Right now, I've been encoding Training Day for 7 hours It says remaninng time is 7:50:00
and this is only for the first split!
Is there anything else I can do?

i ripped lord of the rings: fellowship of the ring using EZ DivX, from a retail dvd - including ripping the dvd to the hard disk, encoding the movie using divx 5.02 1500kb/s 2 discs, and mp3 128kb/s sound took 12 hours on 500mhz cpu.

Oceans 11 took 4 on a 1ghz cpu with the same program and settings as above.

i have never hear anything take so many hrs to rip/encode. u guys should give this a try. use smartripper to rip dvd then use flaskmpeg to encode to (s)vcd. it take about ~4-7 hrs (for svcd) depending on the bitrate settings. the quality is great with Cinema Craft Encoder (cce), and also take quite shorter time to encode than the plugin that came with flask.
btw >> jmebonner, i'm using p3.819 overclocked, which is lower than yours.
