    How long does it usually take you to rip a movie using Handbrake?

    I'm only asking this because mine seems to take forever, nearly 3 hours at the least for a 90 minute movie. :(

    This is very dependant on the settings used any the computer you are doing it on.

    On mine (2.16GHz C2D with 2GB RAM) it does it about 1-2.5X for 1500 kbps with deinterlacing 2 pass.

    I used the standard settings:
    MP4 File
    H.264
    Framerate: Same As Source
    2 Pass, Turbo First Pass
    1500 kbps

    The machine:
    2 GHz PowerPC G5
    1.25 GB Ram

    It's on task 2 of 2 now, and it's still got 6 hours left and it's been going for 4 already. :(

    ex forum user who was banned recently, who seemed to spend his entire time 'crushing' hd video using handbrake (not professionally just to store TV programs) and waiting for mac pro updates.

    I have no experience with that system but on my old iMac G% 1.8 GHZ these settings would've given a frame rate of about 3 fps.

    The only two options you have are stop using H.264 or buy a faster computer. Unfortunately video encoding is entirely based on the speed of your CPU.

    He's got himself banned, so there will be no more help coming from him.

    There's a lot of his stuff posted in the video forum, so it's worth a search when you've got time.

    Sorry for hijacking this thread, but it's got my curiosity aroused (wrong word?) anyway, what exactly did he do to get himself banned? And do banned people get their accounts deleted? (not in member list)

    HANDBRAKE related talk now...I get about 35fps at 1500kbps, H.264 on average, say a DVD rip. So a good 70 mins.

    My PowerBook G4 1 ghz literally took a day or two to rip a DVD down to a 700 MB h.264 file. Needless to say, after ripping 2 DVDs (for confirmation), I haven't ripped any that way again.

    I don't know what he did wrong, his member profile and all his posts are still available to view though.

    it seems it shouldn't take your computer 10 hours though. but maybe so.
