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.
