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

So, I'm starting to wonder if handbrake (or at the very least, my installation of handbrake) is able to convert standalone video files at all. In a nutshell, it will process any mpeg2 file (DVD, Capture from most PVR cards, Transport Stream files from OTA HD, etc.). If your file is not mpeg2, try u...

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

This is my evolving script for transcoding MacTheRipper files. Just save the file in a logical place (I keep it in the Movies Folder... same place I rip movies to). It will loop through all titles longer than X. 1) Save this to a file called "handbrake-longer-than.sh" #!/bin/sh # usage is ./thisScri...

Wow, Jon. You wake up on the wrong side of the bed or what?

Re: Filesize different using Preset?

Thanks for your reply, but that appears to have no bearing on the file size. When I added the quotes, the file size is exactly the same.

Also, CLI seems to run fine without the quotes.

Filesize different using Preset?

Any idea why using a CLI Preset produces a much smaller file than the equivalent variables? Example: HandBrakeCLI -i somedir -o somefile.m4v -Z --AppleTV -2 -T -L produces a file 768MB The longer equivalent (which I found on this forum) HandBrakeCLI -i somedir -o somefile.m4v -e x264 -b 2500 -E aac+...

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

This seems to work ok for VIDEO_TS directories: ./myscript.sh /pathToSomeDirContainingABunchOfVIDEO_TSdirectories (it works recursively ) Obviously, you need to change your args for the bitrate, etc. #!/bin/sh for i in $(find $1 -name VIDEO_TS) ; do /Path/to/HandBrakeCLI -i $i -o $i.mp4 -e x264 -b 3...

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

This is slightly different from your request, but I figured out to to loop through a dir full of MPEGs (from my BeyondTV PVR). First, I had to copy them to my Mac and ran Automator to remove all the spaces and odd characters (like replace ampersands and parentheses with dashes or underscores). Then ...
