Would it be possible to have HB Batch Encoder Mk 2 Recognize .wtv File ? Handbrake has no probleme converting them but they just dont show up in the batch encoder.

Maybe having some sort of .ini file to tell it which file extention to look at would be a good idea that way you could leave some file type as unconverted.

Yes this file type can be added in a future release once it has been tested.

In the mean time you can add this yourself by editing the .config file which you can find in the directory where you installed the application e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Handbrake Batch.

To add the new file type just open the .config file with a text editor and find the line where the file extension types is located and add wtv without the ".".   It is important that you observe space between the names.   When you restart the application, wtv will be available for selection.

Can I ask that once you have tried it and the Batch Encoder successfully encodes your files that you add a short note to this comment.   That way we need not test this file type and just include the new file extension in the next release.

Thanks for supporting this project.

AppGeeker may be right up your alley as its is such an easy to use encoder with good support for converting video/audio files.
