Windows 7: Encoding Speed

I found a download for Recode and installed it. It appears that it doesn't interface with Smart Starts, but it does appear to be able to rip or copy. I will try it later.

Ah .. You may have what they call the light or essential version,. which is basically the Burning utility only.


I was refering to its Copy part. CopyEntire Disc or Copy main Movie to HD. Im fairly sure this part is free isn't it?
I know it decrypts the files and writes them to the HD, but I was unsure if it actually decrypts in real time, as say AnyDVD will do.

Meaning, you can't just have it running and use another program to copy or convert the disc. You need to copy the disc the HD first to have it decrypted.

This was my understanding of it, so I very well may be wrong. Please correct me if so.
I just finished the first run with what would work with DVDFab, and opened Nero Recode to try to continue, but I found the notation on both of it's functions (copy disk, or copy main movie) that it would only work on non-copy-protected disks. So I doubt that it would be of any use for me, because if I had to decrypt with some other program first, I don't know what I would need Recode for.

Now to try batting with one of the other programs I have installed.

Okay, I just ran AnyDVD on one disk, and even though it was very fast, it was also very confusing. First, I found no means to simply rip the movie, only to copy the disk. Of course, this produced a series of .BUP, .IFO and .VOB files, but instead of one file being the largest, containing the movie, it appears that there are two. Also, with .VOB extensions, they don't open with my preferred player, they opened with PowerDVD instead. I already have enough variety in this respect to deal with, so how do I get AnyDVD to behave as I want it to?

EDIT: Another factor with this arrangement is that with sum of the two .VOB files is ~2GBs, which is far larger than I have been getting on similar disks. I really like keeping things compact, because with ~850 movies, I still have ~300GBs of free space left on a 1 TB drive. It appears that this will eat that free space up twice as quick.

Have you tried DVD Decrypter to rip the movie ?

It's too late of night here , I will install nero 8 again tomorrow to see why you are not getting the nero digital option .

I just did (on your suggestion) and the output was the same as with AnyDVD...multiple files of greater volume than I want. Both programs required me to select a target folder for each rip, which is also a bit annoying.

I have used DVD Shrink, for the purpose of reducing the file sizes before, but I would think that there is some other program with would streamline the operation.

The only really good thing that I have found with both AnyDVD and with DVD Decrypter, is that neither of them seem to require any noticeable CPU usage.

Thanks, but had you read the previous posts in the thread, you would have found that since my Nero is OEM, it does not include Recode. I had to download a freeware version of it, which does not interface with SmartStart, nor does decryption.

I suspect that this freeware version is more limited than it is with the retail version of Nero, but I'm not inclined to upgrade for just simply this issue.

I just noticed that even with the method you selected, that it has the same notation on the right side of the interface, saying that it will not copy protected DVDs.

It may get the job done, but at a snail's pace. I just started one disk, and it is only running at ~22FPS and it's estimated finish is over 2 hours, which is longer than it takes to play the movie in a regular player. Also, it runs the CPU as high as DVDFab does. The only thing that I see so far that is good, is that it appears that it will eventually finish the disk.

EDIT: Handbrake says that it will take ~2:08...plus the few that it has already ran, to finish. The play time of the DVD is 97 minutes, which DVDFab would take ~28 minutes to complete...if it would work with this DVD. Why it doesn't baffles me, because it does not have any copy protection at all.
