    Hi, I have about 2GB's worth of mpeg-2 video files and I am looking for a program with a lot of different format options and that can handle a huge amount of files. So if anyone has any ideas they would be much appreciated.

    Video conversion, especially to/from MPEG-2, is slow. No real way around it.

    HB has only limited formats it can convert to.

    Well it shouldn't be on a Mac Pro with 8GB's of RAM. I think there's a system issue here

    What do you want to convert to?
    Would compressor or Episode be more suitable?

    How long is it taking? IIRC, StreamClip won't take advantage of those extra processors.

    Vuze, try the beta converter that comes with it.
