I have bought this encoder but of lately it is taking forever to encode usualy it will take 45min-1 hour to encode a movie from xvid to vcd. I have formatted full and still have this problem. I had to switch to winavi cuz of this problem. When i load both clips into the program it takes a few seconds to load then once i press encode it shows output will take over 3 hours. I got no idea what the problem can be i havent changed anything on my computer. Anyone else know what i can do? I already contacted the makers of the software but they never respond.
