    leelee20,
    Since you are new here this is the gist of it. Alot of people consider copying downloaded( not personally owned) movies piracy. We can not talk about that on this forum.

    That is why you are not gettting any information. I will give you this though. It all depends on your system. Faster better system (mostly the processor speed) = faster conversion

    Besides the speed of your system, there's also the speed of the encoder. Personally, I use CCE, which AFAIK is the fastest MPEG-2 encoder available. On my PC (P4 2.4GHz/768MB RAM) I can get through both passes of a 2 pass encode in about the same time it would take to play the movie. It also gives you argueably the best quality. Since CCE Basic only costs $58 it's an obvious choice to me.

    You do have to figure out a few settings, which I could explain in a few minutes if you're talking about the Basic version, and I'm assuming you don't want to shell out $2000 for the really high end version. Beyond that you also need to be able to use AviSynth, which isn't a problem if you can type up a 2 line text file. Actually, you don't even need to retype the text file every time. You can just edit 1 line to update the name of your AVI file, and you can use an editor called AVSEdit that will create or modify the text for you.
