hi folks, im encoding a dvd that i ripped with handbrake, and im wondering how long - on average - this is supposed to take? i've ripped the main feature w/ mac the ripper and it comes in at about 5 gigs. im then encoding it with handbrake / mediafork as an xvid with 128 mp3 audio for a target file size of 700 megs. outputting at a resolution of 640x480. its estimating 3 hours!! im running a mac pro xeon 3ghz w/ 4 gigs of ram. 3 hours...is this normal??? thanks! steve.
