    I think my G5 iMac takes about 4 hours to rip/encode a movie from DVD.

    My Macbook Pro does the same job in under an hour.

    my macbook will rip from the dvd in about 40-60 minutes.
    it depends on if the dvd is dual layer or single layer and if twopass is enabled

    i usually like to set it at an average bitrate 1800 or so. i usually end up with files at 1.4gb

    although i can still notice some pixelation on my 40" samsung, but it's no big deal. this is for xvids.

    i have not tried h264 yet because it takes a lot long to encode
