    Hi, I've been using ffmpeg in Windows for many years, and I always missed the convenience of some graphical interface to have drag and drop, file listing, batch processing, progress bar, the typical windows application features. I searched for something simple, because my operations are usually just stream copy to .mp4, .ts, convert to mp3, flac 16/44,1, convert video audio tracks to aac 2 channels, trimming, concatenating, also some video shrinking and resizing.

    The point is, all the similar programs that I tried are either too complex for just a few things I want to do, or they do not allow to use the parameters set of your choice, I'm somewhat limited to use predefined options.

    So, for advanced users that just miss the convenience of Windows Explorer, and at the same time want to have total control of ffmpeg behaviour, I started developing this application: FFmpeg Batch. Free and open source for anyone to try, beta but fully functional, compatible with Windows 7/8/10.

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/ffmpeg-batch

    My programming skills are limited. Any feedback very welcome.

    It seems to be quite similar to TEncoder ... surely useful for people with similar needs.

    Hi. I just tried using this to batch convert pairs of CDG+MP3 files to MP4, but I get Unhandled Exception when trying to add the first file ? Same issue occurs regardless of which mp3 is selected as the source.

    Doing a similar ffmpeg conversion from Windows 10 command prompt work ok.
    ffmpeg -i test1.cdg -i test1.mp3 -b:v 1M -y test1.mp4

    I can provide copies of the source files if this helps?

    Here is the error I'm getting:

    Hi, thanks for the input, it looks like file size it's not being reported correctly.
    You can try this modified 1.5.0.1 executable by replacing it on the installation folder.
    If you get the same result, test files are very welcome.

    Hi again, I havent been able to reproduce the issue, I have added your files and could convert them successfully, results attached.

    Maybe the way of adding parameters for specific track encoding is not clear: if parameter is not "copy", -c:v or -c:a is then included, so since your are transcoding you need to add a codec like libx264, and then the bitrate parameter. You can see what I did it on the screenshot below. clearly the feature needs some work:

    Processed files: https://drive.upm.es/index.php/s/aVT4j0ijjMugkX9

    Since by default muxing is saved as mkv, I included version 1.05.2, that obtains file extension from main screen format textbox.

    Hmm. Not sure what's going on with my install, but I'm still getting the "System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Length cannot be less than zero." error.

    I've tried the software on both windows 7 & 10 laptops, but same issue. I also tried moving the source folder to a different location. I wonder if there's something conflicting in windows config ?

    Is there a particular version of .NET framework that should be installed ? Also is this 32 or 64 bit ?

    I think I found the issue, I was handling poorly the size decimal separator, since I assumed it was ",".

    Please remove your current version, delete the installation folder if you still have any custom exe file there and try this new version 1.1 with better
    size formatting:

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/ffmpeg-batch/files/FFbatch_setup_1.1.msi/download

    Thanks for your input and sorry for the inconvenience.

    Visual Studio .NET installer is not very good, but it should detect required dependencies, in this case .NET runtime 4.6.2. 64 bits. I leave the link for .NET 4.6.2 if required: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53344

    This version now works for me, and file size errors gone - thanks.

    Couple of new questions:

    1) How to save the Batch Processing settings so I don't need to configure "libx264 -b:v 1M" and Eng Audio for every file ?
    2) The resultant MP4 plays fine in VLC with video & audio, but not in Windows Media where I don't see video ?

    Glad to know it works at last.

    For question one, those features are not implemented on current version yet, but on 1.2 they will be somehow available. I may provide a beta executable so you can have them earlier.

    Unlike VLC, Windows Media Player is rather "picky" with media files, so maybe you need to try other parameters until you find the ones that your such player version accepts. It maybe a color space limitation, so for improved compatibility, you may try adding this to your parameters set: -pix_fmt yuv420p

    Hi, maybe you have a 32 bits operating system and the product searches a 64 bits. You can find below a 32 bits installer that should work fine, try and let me know:

    You cannot put VP8 video into an MP4 container, it does not belong to the video formats supported by the MPEG-4 standard.

    Oops!

    Thanks.

    Will try MKV, instead.

    Can't find a preset with video copy and audio to 192k MP3.
