Okay, I have some updates on Smacker Vids.
1- The 3 minute bug is only happening with mp4 files.
2- a 2 hour and 12 minute 480p xvid avi file takes about 5 hours to smack.
3- I can smack multiple files at once without slowing things down (up to six on my machine), but I can't make individual smacks go faster.
4- 2 hours and 12 minutes at 480p turns in to 945 MB of barely watchable video at 119KBps (going to try again at a lower resolution, to see if I can get a quality boost)
At current bitrate, that's 650mb for 90 minutes, and/or 1 film per CD at almost bearable quality, but it should play back on my Pentium and possibly also on my 486.
Going to reduce the resolution and see if I can get something better.
