wanna hear somethin' real "funny"? i currently do all my rips and encodes on an AMD 350MHZ machine!!!

a 90 minute movie takes me about

- 10-20 minutes to rip from DVD
- 35-45 minutes to run dvd2avi
- 14 hours to encode to a 352x240 mpeg1 for VCD

if i'm doing a hi-rez 352x480, two disc VCD set of the movie, the encode easily runs 18-24 hours!!!

at an average of 1-3 rips a week, i'd say i keep my AMD 350mhz processor running hot most of the time!

and u guys are complainin' about a 4 hour encode? puh-leeze!

hey 007,

u sure about that 8.30 frames/sec encoding rate?
that doesn't sound very fast for such a fine machine.

at 352x288, i assume ur working in PAL (25fps), so a 90 minute movie has about 135,000 frames. encoding 135,000 frames at a rate of 8.30 frames/sec would take 271 minutes or 4.5 hours, just for encoding. add ripping, splitting and burning and it's more like 5+ hours for a 90 minute movie.

still better than my AMD 350mhz, though... LOL

Whoa... i had no clue your operating system could also effect the time it takes to encode.
