Batch convert files with HandBrake.

Overview

HandBrakeBatch is a fully independent application which uses HandBrake video converter under the hood, and allows you to drag & drop a bunch of files at the same time, and convert them using any of the default HandBrake presets. With version 2.0, I have added the most requested feature: support for multiple audio languages and subtitles.

The application is Charityware (if you find the application useful, please go ahead and donate! I have selected some charities, but feel free to suggest more and I will consider adding them) and licensed under GPL (as HandBrake is). The source is available on github.com, and the complete application is available here. A wiki is also available on github, with additional information (release notes, requested features, etc.). If you find problems, please send me a message or add an issue on github.

What's new in HandBrakeBatch

Version 2.25:
  • New: Updated HandBrakeCLI to version 0.10 to match the latest HandBrake
  • Fixed: Improved parsing of UserPresets; you should get less corruption warnings on valid preset files
  • Fixed: Fixed HandBrake native AppleTV presets; this should fix files that did not play in iTunes

What's the use of this app? Handbrake has built in Batch capabilities. Simply in the GUI. It's called 'Add to Que'.

Too bad it doesn't seem to do X265.

Why is it that HandBrake can run on OS 10.6+ but HandBrake Batch needs at least 10.7? Hmmm.

Use this more then handbreak itself, its the missing drag and go solution. Needs an update for mavericks, crashes if you try to do more then 75 videos in a batch Overall a handbreak must have!

As some comments correctly point out, HandBrake has added batch support recently. More details on this post: http://www.osomac.com/2013/08/08/handbrake-adds-real-batch-processing/ Thank you all for the support! All the best, Cesare Tagliaferri (HBB's developer)

Firefox tells me this site is not to be trusted? When posters comment the app is unecessary, maybe something's not right.

THANK YOU!!! I had been waiting for this for a long time. Who cares about lower quality and a bit larger size? I have just converted 700 home videos from my sister and I did not had to click through Handbrake's UI like an idiot nor did I had to use cryptic shell scripts. THANKS AGAIN!!! :-)

Unfortunately, it does not produce the same quality output as Handbrake. Make this simple test: 1. Create a new preset in Handbrake (GUI version) 2. Encode a video in Handbrake using this preset 3. Encode the same video in HandbrakeBatch using the same preset The two resulting videos will not have the same image quality, with the HandbrakeBatch video being of lower quality and larger file size.

Brilliant! Much like Baddington, have been using the CLI version of Handbrake and a shell script to do batch encodes - this is a much more elegant solution, and makes it significantly easier to change my encoding presets (as opposed to either keeping multiple scripts or editing the same script every time I need to change some of the setting).
