    AVI conversion
    I have been trying to convert my online movies from AVI to MP4 but i am using MPEG streamclip and it seems like each movie is taking at least an hour i was wondering if there was a faster way to convert them. if this question has been answered in a previous thread im sorry but i couldnt find the answer. I dont know if this helps but i want to put the movies on DVD-Rs so i can play them on a blu ray player. I am also big noob when it comes to this so i would need step by step directions if any one is willing to do this it would be greatly appreciated

    I've been using iSquint and it worked out quite well for me.

    isquint and Visualhub are both very good programs. If I am correct, if you have a g5 or newer, it will convert much faster. Anything older will convert in about real time. (Length of the movie)

    Yeah, this is true. I have a MBP and it flies through files.

    So, what did you try with it, an avi file or a video_ts folder?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
