    Does CloneDvD Support multi cores for its encoding? I used to use shrink and i'm fairly sure it did. But I started getting really wierd errors with it and moved to clone. (Would burn chapters out of order)

    Any plans to make clonedvd support multi-cores?

    I tried searching the forums and found this same feature request for clonedvd mobile but not for the regular clonedvd

    It runs on multicore CPU's just fine.

    Yes it is running just fine. But its not USING all 4 cores. I'm encoding one now...and its using one core. Anyway to get it to use more?

    Not that I am aware of and there is no encoding with CloneDVD2 it's a trascoder.

    Hi :)
    Take a look at Transcoding:
    Then have a look at Encoding:
    If you want further info you'll need to be more specific.

    Thanks for the information, The wiki article on encoding is very vague and short. but from what i gathered encoding > transcoding? In terms of compression/quality. And transcoding is faster? Is that correct? Why then do we not have the option to choose? And can anyone confirm shrink was using encoding? Or was it just deceptive on its wording during the "encoding" phase.

    Yes

    Yes

    Insofar as you can buy other programs or use freeware ones, you do have options.



    No. Both dvdshrink and Nero Recode use transcoders.

    Hi :)
    Most folk don't want a full interpretation.
    However for a bit more info to look at, should you so wish.

    Well we got a bit off subject but I'm sitting here transcoding off of my HD (used anydvd ripper) and its maxing out one core while the other 3 sit idle....any plans to add multi core support?

    The only people that can answer your question here are developers (James and peer) or those that talk to them. The rest of us don't know.

    But the thing is that you're not transcoding while using Anydvd ripper. You're not compressing video at all.

    Even though I ripped the DVD to my HD it still has to transcode them and burn them into the compressed format, so yes i am transcoding. Reguardless even when i make copies of copies. Which are already compressed, it still has to "prepare the files" to burn. Which is only using one core. Just seems like such a waste to have all this potential and use a 1 lane country dirt road, so to speak.

    You can always use CloneDVD2 in DL mode then use DVD rebuilder to encode and compress. If you so desire.

    My point is that when you use Anydvd ripper all you are doing is ripping at that point (Anydvd ripper does not have a transcoder). Anydvd ripper, unlike Clonedvd, can not compress video.
