Re: Batch conversion using CLI via Perl or Shell script??

Was looking for a decent solution to this for the atv2. Work in progress, it's currently batch converting for me, haven't tested the output on atv2, I got the settings through google. Was about to start fixing another posted script here, when I realized that somebody else had posted one that had is...

Encode progress report subroutine

I just created this little extra subroutine so that it would give me some output on how far along it is. If you are anything like me and have TONS of videos to encode, you would like an idea of how far along it is, instead of just waiting blindly for the script to finish. Add this to your shell scri...

Re: convert to mp4

In fact you don't even have to wait for the file to convert to rename it. What I usually do when I use the GUI is in the output file name I change the .m4v to .mp4, then I start the conversion.

Re: v0.9.5 breaks Handbrake on Windows 7 Ultimate

I am using Handbrake 0.9.5 on Windows 7 Ultimate x86, and it has been nothing but flawless. It is one of 4 computers that have been working 24/7 to convert my over 800GB of files. And I have been checking a few files each day and they are all perfect.

LOL Thanks, Fixed again. When I put it together I used the presets listed on the CLIGuide. I guess I needed to dig a little deeper.

I was not aware of that. Thanks for letting me know. I will edit that out.

Re: Probably the noobiest question yet

Go to your start menu, type cmd.exe in the search bar, and press enter.

From there you type in your Handbrake commands.

Handbrake Context Menu

Okay I was reading a few posts referring to a want for a Context Menu. I have spent a little time, and peiced one together. I hope this helps people. It is only tested on Windows 7 atm, because I do not have another Windows machine to test on. The context menu says "Convert with Handbrake" and has s...

Re: Batch convert files

Given the limited number of users who have hundreds of homogenous sources, and you can do batch processing with a 3 line shell script if you do, I'm not surprised by the lack of developer interest. Exactly. I have over 3000 videos, several folders deep. Took 15 minutes to find batch convert scripts...

Re: Probably the noobiest question yet

Okay that type of command will only do one file at a time. You cannot point Handbrake at a folder. However if you see the batch script I pointed you to above, a "for" statement will run Handbrake over and over again for every appropriate file in the folder.

Re: Probably the noobiest question yet

Ahhh okay. There are several batch scripts available on this forum. I highly recommend this one: http://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=18917 If you wrote it as a batch script, all you have to do is save the file, rename it as .bat instead of .txt, and double click on it.

Re: Probably the noobiest question yet

Okay, have you changed the Preset name to "iPod"? If you have and it still uses mp4, then that is just a limitation of the Drop Folders app.

Re: Probably the noobiest question yet

With the app Drop Folders, you don't need to open terminal or anything. You just need handbrake installed. Drop folders sets a watch folder. When you put the file to be converted into that folder it should automatically start processing it. EDIT: Found this link at the bottom of Drop Folders web pag...

You did an excellent job of porting this script, and I give you props! However, I did notice one flaw. Currently I have 2 Windows PC's and 2 Mac's encoding vids on a network drive.
