How to convert video files in a batch?

Post by skyw »

Description of problem or question:

I can select a folder of video files in a BATCH, but I CAN'T convert them in a BATCH. I need select and add the title ONE-BY-ONE to the QUEUE, and then I can proceed the convert. This may be very inconvenient, as I simply and only want to convert a batch of video files with the UNIFORM settings.


Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):




HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.3.1


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
macOS 10.15.3



HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

Code: Select all

Please replace this text with the contents of your log file between the two code tags - OR -  provide a pastebin URL in place of these 3 lines.

Got it, thanks. This may be a little bit not user-friendly, as I don't expect we need to click this function on the menu bar, instead of simply click the Add titles to queue.

My recommendation: Modify the "Add to queue" button, add an arrow button on the lower right corner, and show TWO options: Add to queue, Add all titles to queue. I think this may be the best solution. Looking forward to the modification. Thank you!
