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?

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.
