Re: [Bash]Unable to convert multiple files within a folder.

Solved! I managed to find the answer in this Stack Overflow post . Turns out, HandbrakeCLI somehow leverages the same stdin as my script which in turn causes the behavior I experienced. Adding echo "" | in front of my HandBrakeCLI command prevents the loop from terminating prematurely. The...

Re: [Bash]Unable to convert multiple files within a folder.

Re: Blu-Ray to MakeMKV to HandBrake with Subtitles/CC in iTunes

You should look at MP4Tools. The free version will allow you to test whether your mkv files will convert with the subtitles intact. The author also has a tool called SUBtools that takes subtitle conversion into MP4 compatible format a step further.
