I looked and around and didn't see this issue covered.

I downloaded handbrake and vlc and seemed to load up the movie onto my harddrive ok (took around 24 hoursm which I understand is not that crazy). I tried to move it into itunes (it's a m4v file) but that didn't work. Then I saw on Handbrake that I needed to encode it. Ok, fine, but it says it will take 170 hours. That can't possibly be right.

But when I tried a small sample, it actually moved into itunes and played. Does this mean I really need to wait 6 DAYS to get this movie into an acceptable format for itunes? That's just crazy.

I tried just changing the file extension to mp4 but that didn't work either. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I agree. 6 days! I could load more than 100 movies in that amount of time. Are you sure the movies are decrypted properly? I've run into that problem with Acrose.

I have found for me that using the Apple Universal preset works just fine. And since I dont know what half of those settings do I just let it go...

beatrix doesn't say what age that mac is, but even a G4 could encode a movie in a few hours
