Re: Performance of Handbrake Apple Universal encoded movies? - 04-11-2009, 11:18 AM
Handbrake encoded .h264 mp4 movies play fine on the Mini using QT with Perian or VLC player. I store my movies on a separate HDD and have no problem with playback.
Personally I wouldn't bother trying to encode movies using the Mini, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands. I did a test a while back and I think it took my mini around 5-6 times longer to encode a .h264 mp4 movie compared to a 2.4Gz C2D MBP with 2GB
MBP 2.4 C2D 4GB 160GB 10.6.2
Macmin 2.53 C2D 4GB 320GB 10.6.2
Macmini 1.83 CD 1GB 80GB 10.6.2
iPhone 3Gs 32GB; 2*PS3 (320/40GB + PlayTV); Wii; PS2; PSP Phat; PSP3000
