I’ve encoded a little over 50 movies with DVD Shrink now, so I know the average times it should take to encode the movies depending on the length. Here’s the weird problem. A disc that I had encoded previously only took 36 minutes to encode AND burn. I put that same disc in again and when dvdshrink started to encode it, it was then going to take 45 minutes just to encode it!!! I tried a different disc and the time to encode it was going to be a normal length.
I know I do not need to encode from the original again and just make a copy from my copy, but this problem concerns me if this might happen with other discs. Anyone know why this might happen? The only thing that has changed is I changed my burner from region 1 to region 4. BUT, the dvd burner isn’t even the drive that is doing the encoding, so I don’t see why that would effect it.
Any ideas appreciated.
