Input file path in "Send file to" parameters

Post by slavelle » Mon Apr 15, 2019 10:03 am

Hi there,

I'm running HandBrake 1.2.2 on Windows 10, and I'm using the "When Done > Send file to" feature to send completed transcoding jobs to a script to do some additional filesystem admin. This feature uses the path to the output file as a default command line argument, but it would be very useful for me to also have the path to the original input file. Is there an easy way to achieve this - perhaps some sort of markup in the "Arguments" field?

Thanks,

Sean

I cloned the code and had a quick look, and it does not seem like this is currently supported. I've hacked it into my own build for now.

Already on my list to extend this functionality :)
