AVS Video Converter Problem. Help please!

Hi I'm converting a file on AVS, from .DV to Mpeg. It's a relatively big file, at around 2 gb. However it is still converting, after 6hours! Is this normal? My comp isn't super fast, has 3gb of RAM.

Nothing good I fear.

It's spammed widely. Why not convert with titles such as Handbrake or Virtual Dub?

Thanks for reply. Is handbrake or virtual dub good? How long do they usually take (if you use them and are familiar)

The forums get spammed by those trying to sell more copies.

The time to convert varies with the content, settings and your machine. Anyone that writes "it will take 1 hour" is new to this.

For me those are good enough and "what I use."
