With Snow Leopard coming out this Friday, I wanted to reinvigorate this thread. I have a new MacBook Pro with 3GHz Core2 Duo and 4GB RAM but my encodes (especially TV series) are taking more hours than I have to spare. I am really hoping that 10.6 + OpenCL + two GPUs will significantly (>25%) decrease my encoding times.
Is this a matter of Handbrake supporting OpenCL or x264? I know HB devs have opted not to accept donations (I tried to donate after my first successful encode) but I'd be happy to make a donation (and start a incentive drive) if in x264. If this is the case, can someone point me to the x264 discussion forum? I respect the HB developers position on OSS, but I also know a little capitalism can go a long way, especially in this economy.
Thanks for your consideration...
