I'm trying to rip a 25 minute (24:21 to be exact) video to my Macbook. It is in the "normal" setting, ripping it's native size & resolution. At first I tried encoding it with H.264, but it said it would take 7 hours to complete! So I tried the MPEG-4 (FFmpeg) setting, and now it takes about an hour to complete. BUT the quality is horrendous. What am I doing wrong? Here are my specs: Macbook 1,1 2 GHz Intel Core Duo 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Macintosh HD And a pic of the settings Thanks in advance. I also posted this on the Apple forums, FYI.
