Video Rendering - Starts normal then jumps through file

I just build a new computer a few days ago, installed VidCoder and my settings file so I can shrink down a few larger mp4/mkv files, and some work some don't.

Issue I am having is for some files, VidCoder starts, says an estimate of 2h or something.... I walk away, come back 5min later and the progress bar is at 70% or something and a minute later done.

2h render ends up taking 7min. And it says completed with no errors.

I just did it again, different file, and what should have been a 2h19m movie around 3.8Gb in size, is only 6min30sec long and 179Mb.

Not happening every time, but, never had this before and of the 5 files I re-encoded, 2 have had this happen. On the old system I've done it probably around 300x over the past 2yrs and never had it happen at all.

Any ideas?

New computer has an SSD drive for the C:\, but the file (original and destination) is on the D:\ drive which is a 1TB HDD drive. Not sure if matters or not. XEON e3-1231v3 3.4Ghz with 16GB G.Skill DDR3 PC-12800 ram, and an Asus GTX960 2GB video card.
