VideoCD(NTSC) Template
Normal Motion Search Precision
Source Aspect Ratio = 4:3 Display
Video Arrange Method = Full Screen (Keep Aspect Ratio)
Using "No motion search for still picture per half pixel"
Source Range is set to start in the middle to encode 8992 frames (5min)
Task priority is set to High when in use
And I chose for it not to display the output

Results

 Video encoded is a 00:05:00 (8992 frames) clip.
OS Encoding Time Quality Problems
Win98 00:12:28 Same None

Conclusions

All operating systems performed about the same, I would recommend Windows 2000 NTFS due to not having the 4GB file size limit.
