Why does HandBrake take so long?

    I have noticed this with HandBrake in the past, but why does it take so long to encode a video? I have an .AVI file of Edge of Darkness and it is going to take over 3 hours to encode. Why is that?

    I can take a movie DVD, rip and burn it in less than an hour. Any ideas?

    You can up the cpu priority by going into options and then under the CLI tab. I haven't actually noticed or tested if the higher priority improves speed but it should. It's limited to the processing power of your computer (which is your processor/cpu). Although it does take me generally longer to convert with HandBrake than it does with other programs.

    you dont have a powerful enough computer lol. I can do a 2 hours movie in about 45-60 minutes and that is the standard priority for the CPU

    Use ffmpeg. It's faster and more compatible anyways. Just make sure to add one automatic audio layer in AAC.

    That could be it since I'm using my laptop. Although my laptop isn't exactly a slouch with a 2ghz Core 2 Duo, 4gb of ram and a Nvidia 8600M GT. With that being said, my desktop is more powerful so I should probably try that.
