With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Notification per queue instead of per title

Post by RichardTench » Tue Jul 04, 2017 11:51 pm

Please detail your question or problem in as much detail as possible:

Hi. Since v 1.0.7 I get notified as each title completes. I prefer a single notification when the entire queue has completed (in my case that's typically the titles I have selected from a DVD). I've done a search of this forum on "Notifications" and saw only one other person having a similar problem, and it looked from a response that it was not supposed to happen. Is this a problem with what I'm doing or is it the new desired behaviour?

Tell us about your environment. What version of HandBrake? What version of OSX are you running. etc.

Handbrake v 1.0.7 on macOS Sierra 10.12.5, iMac mid-2010 with 16 GB RAM and lots of free storage.

If there was any exception or error displayed, please copy it and paste it here:

None, just the repeated notifications

Please include the scan or encode log:

I can't figure out where the log begins for execution of a single queue, hopefully the following has it right!

Notifications are for each queue item. The alert is run only at the end of the queue.

I too wish there was a notification just for the entire queue, and not per individual item. Older versions of Handbrake used to behave this way, but the most recent updates switched to a notification per item.

When you're doing a batch of 30+ items, it gets annoying. There any way to switch it back to the old behaviour?

Yes, it's open source software.

Pardon? Is your remark to imply that because it's open source I should get the software and fix it myself? Well, not everyone does that.

The software used to behave differently. Someone manually made a decision to change that behavior, I just want it back the old way, so it'd be nice if there was an option for it. If there IS one, I can't find it.

Yes, you asked if there was a way to get the old behavior, and I was providing a way to get the old behavior.

If that's beyond your abilities, that's fine, but you can't have the old behavior.
