    That itself seems horribly slow, on a 2Ghz system I can do a 2-pass encode in a couple of hours tops?
    Sorry - 1500 bitrate, yes. I just use the Film preset, and adjust the bitrate down from 1800 to 1500. Most DVD rips take around 6 hours to encode. Is it because I'm doing it from an .iso, or are there other settings I should tweak Chill?

    No idea, havent used the GUI in a while to be honest
    The .ISO shouldnt affect its speed much, if at all..

    In case you're wanting to do some reading up about the different codecs, their quality, and different softwares abilities then these may help:
    http://research.graphicon.ru/video-c...-codecs-2.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264

    To be honest, not a terribly large amount has changed / improved in the last 2-3 years in the codec realm. Theora's out there as well as MS's VC-1 implementation, but by and large x264 still remains the way to go Either that, or the Ateme encoder which is in Nero Recode!

    (probably a little more info in there than you wanted, but Im gonna pass on this link to a couple of people I know who've also recently asked me similar questions)

    Xvid or Divx,it only takes that long. I was surprised how much slower H264 is to encode.
    Autogk / handbrake/ winff(when I have to)all good ones

    does x264 have its own gui for doing configs?

    i have it installed but it doesn't show in list of encoders.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    x264.exe is a standalone command line encoder

    This may or may not be of use:
