Video convert software acting slow
A friend of mine turned me on too Badaboom, its suppose to be a cuda enabled dvd ripper and converter.
Now heres the deal, i just bought and installed a TB drive in my PS3 to backup my dvd collection to it, for the longest time i was using a combination of DVD decrypter and Handbrake to rip and convert the movies into .mp4, well a buddy of mine told me that badaboom should be faster and have better quality then hand brake because its using the gpu instead of cpu so i downloaded it, made sure the setting are right but when i try to convert a .vob file with it, its really slow.
Hand brake takes about 10-15 min to convert a .vob file from dvd decrypter to a .mp4 file with video quality that i cannot differ from the original dvd. Badaboom is taking 50 minutes using a GTX 285 and the video quality is basically the same as hand brake.
I'm not sure if my setting are wrong or what but i would think something that is taking advantage of parallel processing should be faster then serial.

Video card driver version? Processor? Output resolution? Encoding settings? Baseline or Main H.264 profile?
Handbrake has SMP support and is quite optimized. Given a low enough output resolution and no advanced encoding options, a modern quad-core processor like a Core i7 might outperform Badaboom, especially if Badaboom is using any advanced encoding options not enabled for the CPU-based encoder.
There are also other considerations related to source format, decoding, etc. For example, if you are not demuxing the source material, you could be dealing with audio compression as well. For example, AFAIK, Handbrake supports AC3 passthrough for target media in the MP4 container format. Last I knew, Badaboom does not support AC3 passthrough, meaning it could very well be taking the time to potentially up/down sample, convert channels, and/or encode audio to some other format.Robert Richmond | Infinite perceptions.

Processor is i7 - 920 OC to 4.2ghz
output res is 720 x 720, i didn't set it to that i only the display res to 1280 x 720 tho i should have it set to 1920x1080
Profile - Main
Cabac - On
Level - auto
Rate Control Select - Constant Quality
Key Frame Mode - Fixed
Interval - 80
Quality - highest
It may be audio like you said cuz i did set the bitrate to 320kbit.
