Encoding this dvd is taking forever. Quick question.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
How can I tell if all 4 of my cpus are being used to encode this video. I can't imagine it should take this long. Or maybe it's supposed to I really don't know.

For the record it's about 550 mb's.

What program are you using? Some are still single threaded...
