Thanks for your responses!
I've seen those, actually two are the same, and none address the actual problem. They're about 'creating a script', but everything I've seen here is based on Unix-like OS'es and some bash scripts, which don't work on Windows. Also, one (two) of them require Ruby installed, and possibly would require Ruby knowledge if I were to make modifications

Encode logs can still be useful, regardless of your opinion. You'll note the header makes no exception for "unless you don't think so".
Apparently not, since, for each group of encodes, I'd have to modify the batch script. And sorry about not posting the log, I thought it wasn't exactly mandatory. I have the following, but nonetheless, it's pointless. See why:
To make things simpler, I've created a minimalistic test tree:
The destination was supposed to be like...
E:\test\destination\vacation201[3-5] reduced\201[3-5] [1-3].mp4
Which is the same as...
But if I simply run this...
Code: Select all
HandBrakeCLI -v -i "E:\test\source" -o "E:\test\destination\"
I get this:
Code: Select all
Output format can't be guessed from file name (E:\test\destination), using default.

Seems obvious, right? After all, I didn't use any options. But I don't see anything like a -r or -R option to "recurse" subdirectories so the program could find the .mov files inside. And, if I delve to the actual dir containing the .mov files, then the purpose of the opening question would be forfeit.
So, what could I do besides creating a specific script for each situation?
