A Faster Way To...

I have around 700 mpg files that I want to re-encode to mp4, all with the same settings.
Is there a fast way to use VideoReDo to setup the files for batch encoding instead of having to manually enter all 700 files into VideoReDo?
I'm using v4.21.10.681

Start the Batch Manager and load all the files. You can select multiple files using the shift or Ctrl keys to select multiple items at one time.

Don't try to load all 700 at one time though. That won't be successful.

The v5 batch manager supports drag and drop. If you drop files into the UI it will launch the Add dialog with all the files selected. Although I'm not sure if it can handle all 700 at once, that's a lot and may overflow the buffer or the list. You may want to do it 100 at a time just to be safe.

Edit: Didn't realize I was in the v4 forum. You are free to try the v5 beta if you'd like. :)

I know that v4 works without any hassles. As v5 is new, I did not want to take the chance that something may go wrong because of the amount of files that needs to be processed.
I am currently trying v5 and I have reported the issues that I have encountered with it.

Don't do it if you plan to replace your mpg2 files.
You'll always loose video-quality. There are numerous discussions in this forum on this topic.
