HandBrake adds real batch processing
I had not noticed it, but thanks to some comments on the HandBrakeBatch page on MacUpdate, I have found that HandBrake has finally introduced batch support, since version 0.9.8 (might be earlier, I have not checked).
This pretty much kills the need for HandBrakeBatch, but I am glad that finally HandBrake developers decided to add this feature to the Mac version (it has been available on Windows for a long time if I’m not mistaken).
This said, it is not that intuitive to add several files to the queue at the same time. Here is how to do it:
- When you open HandBrake and it asks for a source, select the folder containing your movies;
- From the File menu, select Add All Titles To Queue;
- HandBrake will add all the movies in the selected folder to the queue.
Given this new feature in HandBrake, I do not plan to release new versions of HandBrakeBatch. A huge thank you all for the kind support and all your contribution to the charities!
