I'm using DVDFAB to rip my purchased movies to my 101...that was taking me 8 - 9 hrs to a MP4 format...however, when I realized that anything over 2meg would not play...I found a topic on here where someone said to rip to a MKV format...now it takes 20hrs...but does play movies over 2 meg on the tablet.

Any suggestions on how I can speed up the ripping of the movie?

I am using a Toshiba laptop with 4gb memory.

Thanks for any help!!

1. AVI and MKV is no video format, but containers.
2. Nice to know the brand of your laptop, but what specs does it have.

Im bad at the computer thing...I can tell you that I bought it about 4 yrs ago for $299. it has 160GB Hard drive and 4 GB RAM. Pretty basic...dont use it much other than ripping movies to Archos and surfing the net.

Then it's really hard to give you advise.

1. Of course videoencoding is a very tough process.
2. It takes longer if you use the wrong encoding.
3. As long as you can't be more specific we can only speculate.

So we need from you the following:

1. Modelname of that computer ( for the CPU and GPU )
2. Exact settings in dvdfab you use

Ok...now I think I have your info:

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955
Intel Celeron processor 900(2.2 GHZ)
Upgraded to 4GB memory
160GB HDD

DVDFab - Version 8.1.7.8
Just purchased Real Steal and here are the settings when ripping:
Video Format: Fixed Bitrate 4140 kbps (this changed from 1500 after setting Frame Resolution)
Audio Format: Bitrate "Same as Source"
Frame Resolution: 1024X600
Crop: Customized Top/Bottom = 0, Left/Right = 17

Thank you for your help and I hope I gave you enough and all the right info.

That Processor is really slow, but that's not really the problem, those settings are rubbish.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-Video
Here you can see that a normal DVD has ( us ) 720x480 x 29.9/sec (eu) 720x576x25/sec

You are trying to upscale it first and than to encode the material.
The other way is alot better because the upscaling is then done by the hardware decoder.

If you look at the "ripping scene" you will see that good quality can be delivered at 640x272 (16:9) or 640x480(4:3) with H.264 + AAC audio at arount 1MBit ( combined).
It will take alot less time to encode.

But why on earth did you buy that software when you can get XMediaRecode or Handbreak for free?

I think I stayed with DVDFAB since I figured how to use it when i had the free trial...
I took your advise and just ripped another movie that was 1.6hrs long and it took only 3hrs vs 20hrs for a 2hr movie...and the only setting I changed was the video setting to 720X480...and not much difference at all form the 1024X600 that I was using.

Still don't understand all of this but have to thank you for your help on this and comments. Atleast now I dont' have to wait 20hrs and can also rip a 2 hr movie to my Archos that i was not able to before.

Thank you again!!!
