    Is there a way to add a list of video files for handbrake to convert them to mp4? As of now it looks like I have to add one file at a time. Thanks.

    You can add them to the queue - when one is finished it goes to the next one. Is that what you mean?

    yes, that is what I mean. When I click add to que it asks me if I want to overwrite the current file that is being converted, I dont believe I want to do that, correct?

    Weird - I just tested it again - When I hit add to queue - it adds it - no message at all. When I view queue it is #2 in line.

    I am not aware of a way. I have always added one at a time. Had several times where there would be 5-8 in the queue. It wont allow me to select more than one source.

    Sounds like you need to rename each file so they aren't all 'Movie' or whatever the default is for what you're converting.

    They all have different file names.

    using the menubar click file/title specific then choose your next file it will be added to your queue.
