i ripped a movie to my hard drive, it is well over 2 hours long so i needed to use ReMpeg to re-encode the video to a lower bitrate in order to fit onto a DVD-R. i was following a guide that said this is the longest part of the process, best to do before bed as it takes 6-8 hours. the problem is - it took 21 hours and 20 minutes to finish. the result works perfectly, but why did it take so long to do? has anyone else had similar results when doing this? is there anyway of making ReMpeg go faster? or is there a faster program out there?
