    I have a 2.2ghz MBP and I usually boot up into my windows partition and use Nero Vision to encode then burn .avi files to a dvd to watch in a player. I like to use the osx of my computer as much as possible so im trying to do the same thing in idvd, i have it set on high quality (not professional)

    Now same computer, same drive, same movie and nero is much faster from the point i start the encoding to the point the dvd is done burning why is this?

    Does idvd use higher quality encoding/compression?

    Hmmm

    I'm not sure, and maybe it's time I test the program too. But I've tried using Nero a couple of times before and it's considerably faster and more stable, methinks.

    also is it unsafe to have my cpu temperature be at 166F while encoding?

    166 is fine. I'd start to worry if you're pushing 200. :)

    Why not just buy a DVD player for $45 that will play avi files off a flash drive? It will save you a lot of time in the future.

    On OS X, Visual Hub works really well. Its not free, but it is a lot faster then iDVD.
