I have a rather old PC (around 5-6 years) with an i7 3770 and keep my movies on mechanical drives 8 to 10TBs so not as fast as an SSD. The average time to create a new mkv from avi (never tried video_ts) for a 10BG movie is 1 minute or less. Since there's nothing or almost nothing to re-encode, the CPU doesn't matter much. Your SSD will help making this process faster for sure, even on a laptop.
Let me know if you need any help with this and good luck!
Where do you find .avi movies from about 10Gb ? The biggest .avi i have is maybe 4Gb.
Anyway, i installed the program and made a containerfile out of an .mkv and added the
.srt subtitle file.
When i use the SSD i have to move the movie to laptop first, this takes time.
Creating the container file over the network on the NAS (4Tb mechanical drives), 5Gb
Matroska and 1 subtitle added, took about 7 minutes. When copiing the files to SSD first
it takes 2 minutes excluding the copie time
So, i'll leave the subs next to the movies, i won't live long enough to create containers
of all my movies
Thnx for offering your help
