I dont know if my computers sucks or what but I am having some serious issues with encoding times. I have tried handbrake, videora, dvdfab, and xvid4psp. I am getting an average fps of about 5-7 fps with xvid4psp. I am not running anything in the background either. I am using the ipod/touch presets for these programs as well as I am not willing to sacrifice quality for speed, but 6-8 hours to encode is retarded. I have a P4 1.8 GHZ with 1 Gig Ram I also have a 500 gig sata hd with 320 gigs free which I am working on. I just upgraded ms framework to 3.0 from 2.0 but that didnt make any difference in speed. Does my computer just suck or is there something I can do? I am not getting anywhere near the speed I see from most who post here.
