HBBatchBeast is a free GUI application for HandBrake and FFmpeg/FFprobe on Windows, macOS and Linux with an emphasis on multi Handbrake instance batch conversion (including recursive folder scans and folder watching). The destination folder structure is kept the same as the source folder structure. Media in subfolders is also converted. Multiple folders can be monitored and different conversion presets can be specified for each folder. There is also a health check feature which can scan for corrupt video files using Handbrakes's '--scan' feature, although this is not always accurate. This is a standalone program on Windows but requires Handbrake to be installed on Linux and Mac.

Bug related:
Small fix for creating '/Documents/HBBatchBeast' for config and logs folders when first initialising.


Bug related:

Fixed UI HandBrake percentage glitch.
Files excluded due to 'Exclude files smaller/larger than' filter will be copied if 'Copy excluded files to destination' is selected.
Improved initialisation of sub-processes. Previously, slower systems may not have started sub-processes quickly enough and would hang.
Fixed destination folder inside source folder validation.

Menus, alerts and 30+ tooltips in 64 languages

Live log with over 150 statuses.

Thorough health check and repair file feature based on u/Desani's PowerShell script CLI commands. Huge thanks to him!

Up to 10 configurations now available. Configurations will need to be redone. Apologies for this.

Logs and config folders have changed to inside your 'Documents' folder to make updating easier in future. Please move your logs folder to the new location in order to retain healthy file logs etc.
-CLI commands are exported to a text file inside the log folder so you can run them separately. Click 'Scan only', 'Deselect all' and then 'Convert selected'. This will skip all files in HBBatchBeast but will still generate the command list for you to use.
-FFmpeg now shows percentages

Warning when using NVENC to lower the number of workers due to VRAM limitations.

Warning when using imported presets to remove '"PictureRotate": "0:0"' from preset file.

Option to automatically remove apostrophes from filenames (useful for Linux users).

Option to now specify any container you like instead of just '.mp4', 'm4v' and 'm4a' as previously.

Option for output filename suffixes.
