Foreign Audio Search and Encode Time

Jan 23, 2013 at 6:56 PM

Version: 1.3.4.0 (x64)

Should using Foreign Audio Search FORCED ONLY | BURNED IN add considerable amount of time to encode process?  With this being the only parameter change, I have seen encode times more than double.  Is this the price to pay for seeking FORCE ONLY subtitles and adding them to the video stream?

Thanks.

I haven't timed it but it does need to do an additional scan pass at the start to look at the subtitles. I'll have to time it against HandBrake and see if it's being any slower.

Yeah, this does appear to be a normal to wait a while for a subtitle scan pass. I wouldn't expect encode times to "more than double" though, and I haven't observed that to be the case. I've seen about a 40-minute scan pass and a 5 hour encode.
