    DVD Catalyst

    How long does it take you guys to rip a dvd with the default settings on DVD Catalyst? It takes me about 20-30 minutes to rip a dvd on my computer, which has the Intel i7 920@3.8 GHz. Is this normal? Faster? Slow? I have enable the boosterpack and it helped a little bit.

    It depends on the settings you are using, the length of the DVD, and if you have any other things going on as well.

    on a Core i7-920, 2,66MHz, Quad Core system, the Apple iPhone conversion format went up from 4x speed to 12x speed (66%)

    on a Dual Quad Core Xeon, the HTC Touch HD HQ format at itís defaults went up by about 20% (note this is for the HQ format, not the standard)
    DVD conversion speed: a 2 hour movie in about 15 minutes!

    the Touch HD HQ format is pretty much the same as the Droid HQ format. The resolution is slightly less for the HTC.
    The iPhone (standard) profile has a lower resolution than the Droid setting, and also uses a conversion format thats more focused on speed.

    I forgot to mention,
    By turning off the CPU indicators (Global Settings > Advanced, at the bottom) you gain a little more speed. While it does not take much to show them (and it looks kinda cool ), especially on faster computers, the little it uses does make a difference on the conversion speed.

    Boy are we spoiled these days... I remember ripping DVDs as an 8 hour event on my 700Mhz PIII to divx and rmv9 because Xvid wasn't up to snuff. Now we complain about about 30 minutes to rip to beautiful h264! Haha, how fast things change and how soon we forget!

    My settings (Droid HQ with audio 256K) are giving me rips at 78%. My PC is a dual core Intel at 1.83GHz with 2GB RAM.

    For me it was with my first PocketPC. I had a lot of DIVX rips, and had to convert them one by one using Windows Media Encoder. Thats how DVD Catalyst was born. First a little calculator to get the filesize right (128MB SD card), then something for the screen, then a batch conversion so I could queue up multiple movies rather than setting a new one up every 6 hours.
    I was actually using a Dual Pentium 2 450 system at the time, LOL

    Your speed sounds about right for the settings you are using. H264 video is quite processor demanding.

    Turn off the processor indicators in DVD Catalyst, should get you up a bit more.

    Yeah, the two pass encodes in Xmpeeg often predicted 8hrs and took 10 - 12. I learned quickly that you'd better be positive before starting an overnight encode because a crash between passes would make for a grouchy morning!

    The Fast and the Furious was the big one for me, I must've re encoded it at least 10 times before I got the qualtiy I wanted and a file that would fit onto a 700mb CD with overburn!
