Using FileWatcher with HandBrake to convert video

Postby DataMystic Support » Fri Apr 19, 2013 1:44 pm

HandBrake is an open source multiplatform video transcoder. http://handbrake.fr One can arguably claim that Handbrake is one of the best free video encoding/decoding tools available out there.

After installing HandBrake,, set the FW command to:

Code: Select all

c:\Program Files (x86)\HandBrake\HandBrakeCLI.exe


And set the parameters to:

Code: Select all

-i DVD -o %FILE% -e x264 -q 20.0 -a 1,1 -E faac,copy:ac3 -B 160,160 -6 dpl2,auto -R Auto,Auto -D 0.0,0.0 -f mp4 -X 720 --loose-anamorphic -m -x cabac=0:ref=2:me=umh:bframes=0:weightp=0:8x8dct=0:trellis=0:subme=6


Using FileWatcher you can DropFolders into place, using FileWatcher to monitor a set of folders and Subfolders.

As soon as you put a file in your Watch folder, FileWatcher fires up Handbrake and conversion based on the preset selected for that particular folder will begin. It is possible to watch multiple folders, and different settings can be applied using an example vbscript/jscript.

See: HandBrake presets for iPhone, AppleTV, iPod etc - https://trac.handbrake.fr/wiki/BuiltInPresets

FileWatcher can be configured as a service and deployed in a server environment using Microsoft Windows Server Resource Kit SRVANY.EXE or run on the desktop as a normal application
