API for libhb?

Post by piula »


I'd like to embed libhb (hb.dll) into an own application. I'd prefer this solution over calling handbrake-CLI from my app. However, I cannot find any documentation about the API; the only hint I've seen so far is that there is a JSON-API.

So, is there some documentation about how to use libhb?

There is no formal documentation for libhandbrake at this time. It's not really used outside HandBrake at this point.

You could look at how the Windows or Linux UI uses the API as an example.
