How big is this file?  I guess several Gigabytes for a movie.

7 hours was usual on my 700 MHz Duron for each pass for an average
movie.  Transcoding movies takes some time.

BTW, you can have transcode run under a low nice value, this way you can
still use your system while it is transcoding the movie.  You just can't
reboot it.
