I have been watching the temps on my recode jobs out of necessity with Vidcoder.
Using the MakeMKV program I am able to get the heat down on my dvd burner by using a preset speed which is lower than maximum. What was happening with the burner was it was generating too much laser heat and I actually had a heat blister problem on
That takes care of using MakeMKV.
But in Vicoder I see cpu running at max and I mean 99% of three cores of the cpu. The temperature of the core rises notably and I have simply shut down the process for fear of hardware damage. What is a way in Vidcoder settings to run a job,
say 30% or 40% *slower* than it's default?
BTW I believe I tried Handbrake earlier with the same problem. The default speeds are too high to run at the period of time needed to do a recode of a2 hour film.
