What?  Are you trying to say you get a 30 minute show to export in 30 
minutes?  That seems to fly in the face of everyone else's experiences.  
I've pretty much accepted that I'll only get ~7 FPS, or just shy of 4 
hours per hour.  This is unbelievably, aggravatingly slow.

For comparison purposes; I have a Sempron 2400+ with 256 MB RAM, running 
the latest KnoppMyth.  Yeah I know, 256 isn't enough.

P.S. I am by no means criticizing nuvexport, I think it's a fabulous 
utility (though it's screaming for a web interface).  I am wondering if 
the encoder itself are finding a bottleneck somewere.

If you are getting "real time" transcoding, can you tell us your setup 
and version information?
