How to open multiple video files at the same time on Linux?

Post by mrjayviper » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:57 am

on Windows, I can point handbrake to a folder and it will open all the video files inside it. and I can then queue them all at once. How can I do the same thing on Linux?

I'm on Ubuntu 17.10 and using handbrake 1.07. Thanks

I haven't found a way on Linux version at all. I have to keep a VM handy with Windows because some seasons are 30+ episodes. Got annoying clicking each one. I'd like to see this feature appear on Linux.

It works pretty much the same way on linux. You open a folder, HandBrake scans all the files within that folder. Then you can add a batch of titles (aka files) to the queue with the Queue menu option "Add Multiple"
