Hi, you're actually upconverting that 700MB .avi file, and that's why it's taking so long. The settings I shared are for high quality video, so we're talking about .MKV or other HD files at 720/1080p anywhere from 4-10GB in size. For 700MB .avi files, just take a look at the properties of your video, and convert using the same width as the actual file itself. This should cut down on the time it takes to convert considerably, and there will be no loss in quality vs. the higher settings (as the video didn't have the quality there to begin with). This should scale down your conversion time by half (at least), I think. Which brings me to a point: There are no definitive settings for converting your videos. You should change them dynamically, dependent upon the quality of your original video, and how good you want it to look on your Droid. There are quite a few good suggestions being made in this thread, and at different quality levels. But a good rule of thumb is to not encode your video at a higher resolution than the original, you're just wasting space.
