The Mac version can already do it, not sure about the Windows version.

The Windows version (1.0.3 2017022500 64bit) does NOT have the option to play a sound when the queue is finished. the options are:
Do Nothing
Shutdown
Suspend
Hibernate
Lock System
Log Off
Quit HandBrake

It doesn't but some people use the SendFileTo option in preferences to invoke a script to do it.

Unfortunatly when we removed growl due to it's lack of maintenance and problems, we lost this ability. It's something I plan to revisit to see if we can get some of the functionality back even if I have to code it myself.

Done: https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/ ... 6eeac944ad

It'll be available in the next nightly build, or 1.1 whenever that lands. (no eta)
