    Hi all

    I have the latest version of Handbrake and currently re-encoding an MKV file to MKV with AAC rather than VC1.

    Is there a quicker way of doing this at all?
    I seem to be getting at most 4fps!

    this is what I am using..

    what am I doing wrong?

    thanks in advance

    You're not going anything wrong, the Core 2 Duo just doesn't have the muscle to go much faster with such a file as you are encoding. Not unless you don't mind a lower resolution or lower quality, at least.

    I currently have a 2.1 C2D in my Vaio Win7 laptop and it would take about the same time (and I've tried with both 2G and 4G of RAM)

    How long would a tv episode of about 40 minutes ripped from a dvd take? Just interested, as thinking about one of the c2d Macs to replace it.
