Hi folks.I use dvd flick to burn various files to dvd.The thing is it takes a long long time to encode and then burn to disc?It's usually AVI files but I'm trying to burn MKV files(2 files,both 45 minutes long and 1.9gb each)and it's taking around 6-7 hours to encode/burn?I was wondring if anyone here uses dvd flick or if there is a better alternative?Thank you.
Flick does not burn it uses Imgburn and the burn time is minimal its only the converting and authoring that takes the time. Those are large files to convert and doubt if there would be anything much faster . A full 2 hour 4.5 G/byte dvd only takes around 15/20mins at X4 to burn
Converting video formats depends on the spec of your CPU.
It's just number crunching so if you've got a single core (Pentium/Celeron) then it can take hours.
Dual core then an hour or so.
Quad core 22mins ish.
creating an Iso first is the safest way to go reasons you can then check it is watchable (yes you can watch an Iso on the PC) it will behave exactly like a dvd albeit you may need something like VLC player free ..
Also if it not watchable you have not wasted a disc . If the iso is ok then you can just burn to dvd when needed and that as I said earlier is only a matter of minutes rather than hours.
