Slow down read speed?

Post by sfenwick » Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:18 am

Is there a way to force a slower read speed, in particular with XBox HD-DVD drives?

Not within the program, but... You can limit the write speed by writing the output to a USB flash drive, if it has enough space. A USB2 flash drive will limit writing to about 4x or so read speed on Bluray.

You'll want the flash drive formatted as either NTFS (Windows or Linux machines) or ExFAT (Windows or MacOS) so that the larger video files can be written.
