Sorry to double post… after having a look around, I see a time to aim for is a little less than the running time of the DVD.
At 12 hours encoding for a 2 hour DVD, I am definitely struggling. The rip is quick, it’s just the encoding that struggles.
Is it potentially as I am using the default XBOX setting with a 2pass encode? The first pass usually takes about 3 hours, which I could live with, it’s the 2nd pass that is the drainer?
My main goal for the output is just to stream my DVD collection wirelessly from my PC to my Xbox 360. File size is not an issue, and quality isn’t a huge issue either (within reason), I am mainly just looking for a way to streamline backing up a large DVD collection. At 12 hours a disc, I’m going to be backing up every day for months!
Or maybe my paltry 1 gig of ram is just not up to the job?
Sorry to be painful… any help would be great. I am so excited at the prospect of having my DVD library so easily accessible through the Xbox!
