Default How long will it take me to rip a DVD to a VCD/SVCD??

sponsored links

I got a 1.4ghz computer, with 80gig of hard drive, and 256meg of ddr ram.. Just wondering with this computer, how long will it take me to rip a 2 hours DVD movie into a proper VCD/SVCD?? I used to rip DVD into divx with my 450mhz computer, and the encoding alone will take up to like 8-9 hours.. Thanks in advance for the help..

Take you possibly 3 - 5 hours for VCD and 3 - 9 hours on SVCD

Your hard drive doesn`t make any difference to how fast it rips, just your processor and memory. Sometimes there`s not a big leap when you swap processors but there will be upgrading from a 450.

A tip what I found out, check your cpu temp in the bios, if it`s very high 40 + then change your CPU fan as I found this makes a difference in how fast it will rip. Is about 10 for a fan thats designed for the XP 2000 if you want cheap.

I can give you my experience, if it's of any use.
I have 2 computers, a 1 Gig Athlon with 256 Mb, and a 1800+ Athlon with 512 Mb. The rip (Smartripper) takes about 30 mins, I think it depends on the speed of your DVD-Rom. DVD2AVI is also about 30 mins.
The encode (TMPGEnc) takes 5 to 6 hours on the first machine, and about 1 hour 30 mins on the second pc.
As video-arcade said, the size of the hard-disk doesn't matter, this is a cpu-intensive exercise.
Hope this helps.

Short you need to do the following, especially if your using an 1800

1) goto bios
2) see what the cpu temp is like if it`s 40 + you need to replace your fan
3) If it`s a low cpu temp then replace the software, check your aspi layers etc

I had the same problem running a 1.3 my 800 was ripping, encoding and everything else faster than a 1.3 with 512 megs of ram. I changed the CPU fan only a 10 I brought but was for a 2000 CPU and no problems now.

Always best to get CPU`s at a higher rating than the actual CPU and as I find out often dont buy cheap equipment as usually it has a tendacy to bugger up faster.
