I'm thinking of building a high end dedicated encoding machine (to take full advantage of my netflix subscription). So does virtualdub take advantage of dual processors? Will movies be encoded twice as fast this way? If not, can you at least encode two movies at the same time, thereby cutting encoding time in half, anyway? Right now, I'm on a 1.0 GHz machine with 512MB RAM. So if I build a dual proc 2.0 GHz machine, can I expect to encode 3-4 times as fast? Any suggestions about what hardware I should use in order to maximize my rips from netflix? What I mean is, I want to create the most efficient ripping schedule, maybe a movie everyday (7 movies a week). Any advice or suggestions would help.
