I batch converted 388 .mp4 files by dropping the container folder into the "Source Selection" window of Handbrake. It converted 49.3 GB of .mp4 files down to 9.00 GB. I cannot tell any difference in either the video or audio quality when comparing with VLC player. Wow! Excellent program!
Here's how I did it:
Using HandBrake to shrink file size.
1.Launch HandBrake and drop the folder that stores all the video files you want to convert into the "Source Selection" window. Optionally click "Folder (batch scan)" to choose the folder to batch scan and convert.
2.Click "Tools-> Preferences", navigate to "Output Files" and click "Browse" to choose a folder for saving output files. I left all the (checked/unchecked) boxes as is. One of them, "Automatically name output files" was already checked by the Handbrake program default settings. Then, click "< Back" to go back to main window.
3.Choose any output presets you'd like. I chose "Very Fast 720p30 (Default)".
4.Click the down arrow beside "Add to Queue". I chose "Add All" for batch converting all my 388 .mp4 files. Once added, you will see a number beside "Queue".
5.I clicked "Add to Queue", and selected "Add All". Beside "Queue" the number 388 in white numerals was displayed in a blue oval.
6.Then I clicked the "Start Queue" button to begin processing HandBrake batch video.
7.You'll see a green status bar in the bottom left-hand corner that indicates the progress. When done, in that same bottom corner Handbrake displayed "Queue Finished".

Fantastic freeware which imho never gets enough credit. Many companies out there use free FFmeg via their inferior gui's and charge you quite a lot for doing what Handbrake, Staxrip and Hybrid do for free and vastly much better without any charge!

Did a quick check of latest version 1.6.1 and it may no longer support ripping using libdvdcss.dll Tested on Win10 64bit 22H2 and Win 11 22H2. 1.6.0 was last version to support libdvdcdd.dll. 1.6.1 needs more testing.

Pretty good software, I used it in an entire series without problems so far.
