How to convert DVD to Avi files?(21 posts)
all i ca say is that with my 2.66 Ghz P4 and 1 gig of Ram, it takes on average about 3 hours to convert a DVD to a good quality AVI, i like having it as high of quality as possible, if you want less, then of course conversion takes less time.
It also depends on how many "passes" you do. you have to do at least 2 passes, and on my machine it is 1.5 hours per pass.
so this will work with vista, as it was not listed on the sourceforge page? If so, do i need a newer codec package? Gordianknot certainly does have a lot of options, i´m gonna have to do a bit of googling before i understand how to use it. I wish there was a "one click" conversion program, lol

One of the primary reasons that I got my Q6600-based system is that the video conversions were taking soooo long on my P4 system. The software that I use for conversion, TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress, is multi-core ready and puts all 4 cores to work. Video conversion is very intense both in I/O operations and CPU/FPU.
