    converting film files to playable VCD/SVCD files, is there anyway to speed up this process? it took me 6 hours!!! to encode a 16 minute film into SVCD and thats sort of repulsive... VCD is better in my opinion but it would be absolute hell converting a 700mb movie to playable vcd with the time factor and need to know of any shortcuts or so, I use TMPGEnc Plus 2.58.44.152

    No, there is no way to speed up the process. In fact, it would probably be faster to just download the VCD/SVCD version of the file you want. That way there is no converting, just download and burn to disk.

    Depending on your OS, you could use taskmanager to set the priority level of TMPGEnc to real time.

    It may not be a drastic change in the time it takes to encode, but it may help a little.

    It depends on the DVD player whether it will matter what form its in. I haven&#39;t tested mine with pal although I&#39;m planing on testing it some time soon.

    Edit: Spelling
