Which dvd ripper takes advantage of dual core?

What do you mean? Just install DVD Shrink and make sure affinity is set to core 0 and core 1, make sure you disable low priority and enable advanced analysis. I wouldn't recommend encoding directly from DVD, rip the DVD to your hard drive first, using DVDFab Decrypter, then use the ripped files to compress the movie. Both apps are freeware.

Divx and Xvid do

 

Xvid is free, DivX I think still costs $

 

oops thats for encoders

 

 

I use DVD-Shrink (whatever the latest one was) and Gordian Knot and as far as I can tell, both Gordian Knot takes advantage of SMP but DVD-Shrink doesn't seem to (but I use it 99.99% of the time anyway)

 

DVD-Shrink was discontinued awhile back since the creater got a letter stating that he needs to stop this act before further action was taken.

You can still find it, he lists latest version right next to a Google search box....hint, hint. DVDShrink is still my favorite app. I am surprised nobody ever modded it to include mpeg2/4 encoding.

I use AutoGordianKnot and its included associates. When my machine used a single disk and an A64 3200 it would take about 90 minutes to encode a 42 minute episode of 24. Since I've upgraded to a 4x250GB RAID0 array and an Opteron 165 at 300x9, it now takes about 40-45 minutes, depending on how many audio tracks I put in. Also, that's excluding the time that it takes to decrypt and dump the DVD to my hard drive.

 

Task Manager indicates that it utilizes both cores.

Anything optimized for 64-bit and dual core support around? Super DVD Ripper doesn't seem to pick up on the latest XVID codec. I think it might be because it has no installer, just the codec and an inf file to install it.

I think I'll give up on 64-bit for another year or so, x86 works good enough for now, DVD Shrink analyzes over 1,000 frames per second @ 12,000+ KB/s, and encodes @ just over 5,000KB/s.

I should just be happy with what I have and stop tweaking.
