    Handbrake CPU usage.

    Does anyone here use Handbrake to rip and is there anyway to have it use less CPU power while ripping? I'm on a duel-core at the moment and handbrake uses both cores at full 100% and even with the fan on full blast I'm afraid of them burning out.

    At the least it means I cant run any other programmes while its ripping. Is it possible to reduce the CPU usage?
    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
    And I looked and behold, a pale horse
    And his name that sat on him was Death
    And Hell followed with him.

    Hi Cal,

    I don't know much about Handbrake as far as ripping goes, but I have a feeling its not the best way to do the job.

    I would suggest downloading a free program called DVD Fab:

    http://www.dvdfab.com/download.htm

    And then following this guide:

    http://www.dvd-guides.com/content/view/225/59/

    But in general ripping programs are gonna take a high percentage of CPU Usage while they are ripping. That's been my experience. I guess people with more powerful computers than mine can chime in though. Do you have a any kind of temperature monitor (i.e. CoreTemp) which gives you data on the temperature your CPU is at? That might be a good way to be sure you're not at risk of overheating or anything.

    And on a side note, just to play it safe, if I'm doing anything like ripping, encoding, converting etc., I close out all other programs and sometimes, when I'm feeling extra paranoid, I disconnect from the internet. The less applications/processes/programs running in the background, the better IMO.

    RE: Gatos

    Thanks for the advice. Tbh I'll definitely check out dvdfab, its just I'm new to the whole editing and most people say handbrake is the best tool for ripping the content in the first place (its got tons of advanced features but I'm not sure if they're really worth it).

    And yes I will probably just have to switch everything off when I'm ripping from now on.

    Isn't Handbrake a Mac program and DVDFab PC? On a related note, it's always helpful to indicate which you are using when posting questions like these.

    Second gatos's advice. Whenever encoding anything, whether a movie rip for your personal collection or your fanedit, leave the computer alone. You never know whether an encoding number or two might get jumbled while you do other "intensive" things, like watching netp0rn, leading to a screwy block of pixels in your end product.

    btw, anecdotal experience sez watching carnality on the net is intensive for the viewer's CPU. Upper or lower, I'm not sure.

    Handbrake can be used on Windows. But yes, it would be good to know if the OP is for Mac or PC.
    Go then, there are other worlds than these.

    Sorry about that. Its PC and Handbrake is an open source program to my knowledge. As far as I know its freely available on all OS'. I only chose that initially as from what I'd read on various forums its the best for ripping (at least as far as having the most options to it that is). Only problem is having to install AnyDVD to get round the copy-protection to accompany it.

    From what I've been using of DVDFab recommended to me upthread is that it doesn't like AnyDVD and preferres to disable it before use. I'm assuming this is because it has decoding features to it already?

    Yep, you don't need AnyDVD, DVDFab decodes/decrypts the DVD files and rips them to your harddrive.
