    Seriously.

    With my AMD 3500+ this took 15 minutes, with my iBook 1.2ghz w/ 768mb ram this is taking 8+ hours.

    I thought macs and shit were supposta be good at encoding movies :hsugh:
     
  2. Repost. And don't add :hsugh:. It kills the sincerity. Also, you need more exclamation points, more vehemence!
     
  3. But to answer your question, it's because MAC's suck and are slow.

    You mean it actually has a CD burner? Did they just get those last year? :rofl: Stupid MAC's. Trendy gay shit. I'll be glad when they go out of business and have to sell their Ipod technology to Dell. :rofl:

    It appears your 3500+ is a much faster processor which will have some influence over your encoding speed, definitely not enough to make it 8 hours faster.

    My guess would be that it's the codec you are using to encode the video? Do you know what you are using?

    I just stick add the avi into Toast 6 Titanium and click burn :dunno:
     
  9. Everything is much faster than a MAC processor.

    If you had a decent mac it wouldnt take that long. i.e. not a iBook.

    iBooks are very decent machines.

    It's not just the iBook, Toast sucks at encoding video. Toast is even slow as hell on a Dual 2.5 G5, granted it will be Faster.

    Check out ffmpegX

    They're good at what they are: a laptop. The specs for the iBook arent too bad, they're just a little slow by today's standards. It doesnt help that Apple slowed down the iBook a tad to make the powermac seem more appealing. They're great for writing that paper while sitting ouside under a tree, just dont expect to throw everything at it.

    Well I'll be raping this powerbook for the next 1-2 years since my pc got stolen :noes:


    Halon, downloading that right now :noes:
     
  15. You could leave a MAC laptop on a park bench and it wouldn't get stolen.

    If life were like that, you wouldn't need a Visa card.
