Video Encoding Problem

I use handbreak to condvrt my dvds to .avi format to store in PC, as it requires less space. But sometimes the pc restarts unpredictably when this program is running, not always. Have any solution?

What is your RAM size ?

* Alternatively, you can just give 'High Priority' for the application, using the task manager !!!

Ram is 2 GB. The program runs in high priority, too.

Please know that encoding process requires high RAM/resource usage. Hence, I would advice you not to run any other applications during the encoding process. Sometimes, it might be a bug of the application !!!

Hope this info is helpful

Its also possible there could be a hardware/stability issue while the PC is under heavy stress.
And video encoding can at times show these instabilities where as normal PC use will not.

You can try a stress test to find out. If it restarts/BSODS under a stress test then you'll know for sure. At which time you can begin pinpointing the culprit.

If this is the case, it could be anything from instable overclock (IF OCing), a bad RAM module, power supply ...

What CPU do have? Are you overclocking?


Intel Burn test is likely the fastest and most accurate.
Run it for 5-10 passes at MAX stress. If there's is a instability causing your problems, it will find it.

Read the Notes about the program!!
IntelBurnTest v2.3 download from Guru3D.com

Also, watch your TEMPs closely!!! IBT will produce much higher Tempratures than you will ever see in any real world situation.
However, TEMPS should never reach the danger zone.
If they do... STOP IBT immediatly. Theres other issues that need to be addressed.



If your PC can survive IBT, then stabilty shouldn't be the problem.

Try free Format Factory for the conversions ( Format Factory - Free media file format converter ). It never gave me a problem and does an excellent job in terms of speed and quality.

Never use any encoders in High priority. Depending on the setup of your rips, the encoder itself will calculate the encoding speed and changing the priority won't speed up the rip, all that happens is needless stress on the RAM and CPU. You should realize that setting up an encoding of any video requires that the encoder has a lot of knowledge about the video, so setting the encoder to a lower priority is actually more efficient because it allows more time for the encoder to scan every aspect of the video and calculate exactly how it should be compressed: B-frames, reference frames, frame structure, motion prediction, motion estimation, color, amount of blocking and deblocking it should use, amount of noise and denoising it should use, and one of the most important things: are the frames interlaced and how, also which is the best way to deinterlace those frames.

Never use a software that doesn't allow you to set up at least some of these options no matter how free or cheap it is and no matter how much other people tell you it's good; the resulting quality of the video will never be as good as with programs that allow these settings to be tweaked and optimized to your liking.
Handbrake is my best choice, but I'm sidestepping the answer here. Just lower the priority of the encoder, you don't need and shouldn't change it... ever!
