Ok so I have tried searching Handbrake for a definitive answer - read their wiki, etc. I have also searched Macrumours. The reason i'm posting here is because I don't want to be "yelled" at Hanbrake forums (they aren't friendly). Under Handbrake when selecting MP4 you get two (5 in total incl. the 3 audio) codec options - FFmpeg and H264 I've noticed that FFmpeg encodes alot faster than H264 (I get around 200fps) compared to 40fps on H264 Is it worth using FFmpeg?
