Where are settings stored? Move settings file to install dir?

Post by pstein » Tue Feb 19, 2019 4:20 am

I downloaded and extracted the portable zip 64bit version of Handbrake in Win7.

After start I changed e.g. the path to VLC videoplayer in Preferences and expected to find the file where it is stored somewhere in extraction folder.

But all the *.config files in HB folder do NOT contain this information.

Where is it stored?
In Registry?

I want to keep Handbrake really portable and want to store all settings in HB folder (e.g. D:\tools\video\Handbrake\).

How can I achieve this?

Is there a way to call Handbrake with user config as cmdline parameter similar to

D:\tools\video\Handbrake\Handbrake.exe -config=D:\tools\video\Handbrake\myprefs.config

or even better with relative path:

D:\tools\video\Handbrake\Handbrake.exe -config=.\myprefs.config

?

If NOT: Can this be added to next release?

Thank you
Peter
