100% Cpu Ultilization On Amd 2600+ System


gassyjoe

Question

Attempting to encode a movie causes this software to use up 100% of the cpu. Net result is that I am unable to doing anything on the machine while it is encoding, not even change titles of files. Is this normal?

 

Relative system specs are:

CPU: AMD XP 2600+ (Barton core)

RAM: 1GB Crucial PC3200

Hard drive space: 90+GB free

Video card: Radeon 7000 AGP with 64MB RAM

 

As far as I can tell the system meets the requirements for this software so i didn't know if something was wrong or if the requirements simply allow the software to run and you're not suppose to try to do anything else while it is running.

 

Please let me know if there is anything that can be done or if any of the hardware listed is incompatible with this software.

Encoding video is quite CPU intensive, and yes this is absolutely normal. The faster the CPU, the faster the encoding will go.

And it is not advised to be using the computer while it is encoding. Start the encoding and then find something else to do until it's finished. Depending on your machine, using it while encoding has been known to cause hiccups and pauses in the final DVD especially on slower machines.
