Hi, I'm just trying to get some idea as to how quickly a Core Duo can encode a DVD compared with my lowly G4. Soooo.... if you have a MacBook/MacBook Pro/iMac Core Duo or Mac mini Core Duo and Handbrake would anybody mind doing a quick speed check? No need to rip an entire DVD, just about 4 or 5% so as to get a decent average fps figure. Would you mind trying the following settings: mp4 file, MPEG4 encoding: 1250kbps average bit rate 128 kbps sound Full resolution mp4 file, H.264 encoding: 1250kbps average bit rate 128kbps sound Full resolution That's it. So, if you feel like helping me out, post your average fps after about 5% of the film is ripped. Thanks so much, Cheers, Chundles.
