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.

open multiple files by specifying folder

Post by mrjayviper » Sat Mar 31, 2018 12:29 pm

Hello. I'm currently on Windows 10 and I really really like the ability to open multiple videos when specifying a folder.

Is there a way to get something similar when using Linux? I installed 1.0.7 from the repo (not using Ubuntu here) and the feature is not available.

Thanks!

It works for me, nightly Handbrake builds and Linux Mint.

Just select a folder/directory and hit open. All titles within the folder are then scanned.

Bit of a Linux noob (coming to Linux from Windows/FreeBSD background), but following the instructions linked to on the handbrake nightly builds page.
