Add an option to set the default output format.

Post by ManilaByNight » Mon Feb 13, 2017 11:23 pm

Please describe what you would like to see added to HandBrake:
I would like an option to be able to change/set the default output format from mp4 to mkv and vice-versa.

Why would you like to see this added:
I use Handbrake to convert multiple video files to Matroska mkv format files, but I keep forgetting to choose Matroska from the format dropdown for each video whenever I start it. I can't find any way to set this as the default.

What version of HandBrake are you currently running:
Version 1.0.2

What operating system and version and you currently running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14):
Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64bit.

We have a preset system (both built-in presets as well as the ability to save custom presets), and you can set a default preset to be used, too.
