I'm trying the "Free Trial" version of Wondershare on a couple of MS Vista PCs and they seem to take forever to convert, literally longer than the movie itself. Has this been others experience? A setting perhaps?
I've found the speed of Wondershare to be the fastest of the programs I've tried, and I have tried a lot. If you have multiple jobs in your queue it will process two at a time (I'm using a dual core laptop, may be even more concurrent processing if you have quad core pc). I have been using it to rip anime episodes from dvd box sets. Each episode is about 22 mins long, and with the settings I'm using it takes less than 20 mins to process two episodes. I will time it next time so that I can post a proper timing.
I use the following settings for 4:3 dvds:
640x480 (could have gone with 720x480, but wanted the videos to be compatible with my iPod)
128 kbps AAC audio
And these settings for 16:9 dvds:
853x480 (it forces output to 856x480, but can't notice the difference when watching)
128 kbps AAC audio
Thanks for the reply. I put 'Cars' DVD in my pc and it took 4hrs to convert a 2hr movie but easily imported into iTunes and then sync'd to my iPad. I also did 'Yellow Submarine' with the same result, about twice as long as the movie to convert. Since it did work easily, except for the time it took, I'm going to go ahead and buy it since it's a 1 stop operation. I can always do the conversions overnight.
I'll check the settings and see how that affects it. Thanks again.
How large are the files for a typical 1.5 hour movie stored on the iPad. (Apple won't be getting mine until the middle of June:-(
I have converted around 50 movies for my iPad, I use handbrake on my MacBook pro, I use the regular high profile setting in handbrake, most of the movies usuall end up around 1.5 gb. Avatar was around 2.2gb. They look great on my iPad, I have around 30 movies on my ipad
