How can I make Handbreak go a little faster than just 10fps? *

I transcode 1080p home movies to a lower resolution to watch on my iPhone 4. The settings I use are: 5000kbps, 2pass is checked, same as source or 29.9fps is also selected. It depends on the day. Why doesn't Handbreak ever go faster than 10-12fps on my Macbook Pro 13"?... ... So frustrating!!! Any tips?!?!???

Uncheck 2 pass and you will simply halve the transcoding time

and are you using the 64 bit version of Handbreak?

HD footage, transcoding and resizing does take a long time. I'd switch to using constant quality or use one of the presets on handbrake.

Depending on the source footage and what you do with it will really affect transcode time.

Also know you don't have an uber powerful transcoding workhorse of a machine - although some transcoders may go faster (have you tried mpegstreamclip?) you're most likely never going to get terribly fast transcode speeds (I'd be surprised if you could manage faster then 2x original time) when taking 1080p footage, transcoding to a lower resolution, scaling the bitrate to 5,000 and (I'm guessing) converting to a different container.

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

I'm not understanding how people don't know what a handbrake is (not the software!). Every car, truck and bicycle on earth has one.

Thus, I'm always confused that anyone would misspell it. I know homonyms can be confusing in some cases (their/there, I definitely get that), but once you know what a handbrake is, you'd never confuse it for a hand break.

Wow, I've ALWAYS wanted one of those!! Thanks!

PS. I do apologise if I offended anyone. Spelling mistakes happen to everyone, including me, and although I'm fairly compulsive about good spelling, I *usually* let things slide, but that one was really bugging me. So I just want to make clear that although I'm now a proud member of the spelling police, I'll try hard not to be a spelling *nazi.* There's a difference.
