    I'm using Roxio DVD Builder to burn MPGs and AVIs onto a DVD. The only problem is that it takes FOREVER to "encode" when i click the burn button. Is there any way to speed this up? or can anyone suggest a better, faster authoring program for me maybe? Thanks

    As for speed, encoding always takes a while to do...

    There are many guides on dvdrhelp.com that may help you find a better app.

    i find it takes about 4 hours to burn an AVI/MPG to a DVD and only about 20mins of that time is actually burning.

    Yes, buy a dual or better quad processor box. The delay is the re-encoding of the video file to MPEG for the DVD. Faster PC is about the only way to make it faster.

    Sorry.
