[Rejected] Target file size

Post by schnedler »

Please describe what you would like to see added to HandBrake:

I keep trying to install the older versions for one simple reason - the ability to just write in my target size for a file. I know you give us math conversions but for non-techie people it was so convenient each time to just write that in the square. I love this program but when that very useful feature was eliminated, I can't express my level of disappointment. Is there ever any possibility of bringing that back?

Why would you like to see this added:

It was the one feature I used to use EVERY time I used the program.

What version of HandBrake are you currently running:

What operating system and version and you currently running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14): win 10

If you search you will see several threads about this, in short it's gone and it's not coming back.

It didn't work very well and the usage was generally misguided, so no, I don't think it will ever come back.
