Hi, long time reader, first time poster here. I’ve searched through the site/forum as well as google but can’t seem to find any straight consolidated answers to some of my questions…
First off my company is needing me to rip a lot of DVDs to be put on a VOD(video on demand) site we’re building. The company building our VOD site has given me some instructions on how to do so by using DVD-Decrypter and Mpeg_VCR, which is fine I know how to use those. We have hundreds of DVDs needing to be ripped, I’m curious what the fastest method of doing this would be…
Also we’re looking to buy a new computer just for that, what exactly does ripping a dvd take the resource of? 100% the DVD drive and the CPU?
My second task of the project is also encoding ripped DVDs with DRM, etc. And as far as I know(correct me if I’m wrong) encoding is 100% CPU usage and has nothing to do with Graphics Card? Would having multiple core CPU help with that if the software being used supports it?
I was looking at something like this(not sure if link will work or not):
Pretty much default configuration it has there with minor add/sub here and there.
Choosing dell for simpilcity sake for the company, otherwise I would probably have built a similar system myself.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
