Time to copy a DVD

Question

Does any of you can tell me how long it takes to copy a personal DVD using Popcorn 2?

I am copying my wedding DVD and it is taking more than 7 hours!!! It that common?

I am using format H.264 to use with Apple TV, which by the way I could get a good picture quality for another video that I copied. Images look frozen sometimes...

Thanks

Armando

That is a long time... however on my Intel Core duo (2 Ghz) iMac that is common with H.264 using Roxio Popcorn.. not sure why it is soo slow for me either! Did you use Multipass... that may explain for the slowness... if not and you want HIGH quality looking movies from Roxio Popcorn 2 (and don't mind 7 hrs times 7 lol) than choose multipass which passes through the film 7 times and cleans up the image!!

 

This is why in my post... why the quality looks so bad with Popcorn 2 because I did a test... single vob through QT looks great with ipod out... did the same thing with Popcorn 2 High Setting and looked horrible.. (with same single .vob)... so I am not sure on why QT has better output than Popcorn 2 with H.264 when they are using the same encoder or so I am told.... Anyways if you want good quality and fast speeds just use Handbrake for now.. it is free

 

here is a link...

I personally like Popcorn 2 because of Turbo which will eventually support Popcorn 2 (this device is by Elgato and speeds up the Time to encode with QT applications using H.264)

That is a crazy long time. What type of CPU do you have?

 

 

A macbook 2.0Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo - 1GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

What am I doing wrong? it is pretty quick using Mactheripper (average time 45min) and pretty quick to upload to apple tv (average 30 min), but to convert the file is crazy...

 

which configuration for popcorn 2 do you recomend? I use the video just in apple tv.

 

Thanks
