Wow! I can't believe it took me this long to find HandBrake... EXACTLY the piece of software I was looking for (not hard enough, as it turns out).

Question for the people who have been using HandBrake for a while: what settings do you use and what are your results? I've tried the FFMPEG setting at 768 & 1024 kbps (1-pass encoding) and found the results hard to distinguish from eachother. I was expecting the 768 one to look pretty bad.

What are your experiences with 2-pass encoding? Does it make a difference?

I found the speed on my 1.8Ghz G5 (single) a bit disappointing (but acceptable): the average framerate of the encoding is around 13 (meaning the encoding takes about twice as long as the movie). What are your experiens with the encoding speed?

Thanks beforehand,

Daniel Baars
