Usage: bvwack options
|-b BASE_DIR, --base-dir BASE_DIR||Set BASE_DIR instead of $PWD|
|-d, --dry-run||Do a dry run. Prints proposed commands to STDOUT.|
|-c, --clean-up||Instead of converting, move all converted files to $PWD/bvwack-back/[old-path]. If used with -b files will be moved to BASE_DIR/bvwack-path/[old-path]|
|-n #, --num-files||# Number of videos to batch. If -n is omitted, the default is -n 2|
|-l, --list_converted||Lists files that have been converted but not cleaned. Useful for verifying successful conversion.|
Notes: I have set the FFMPEG options to use only 2 threads. This allows me to use my laptop while converting things. If you just want to hog through video try setting -threads 0 in FFMPEG_OPTS. Currently bvwack only works on UNIX-like systems.
Requirements: ffmpeg and a libx264-slow.ffpreset (possibly in your ~/.ffmpeg/ directory or in your Cellar if you use brew.) Google is your friend.
|bvwack -dw||Shows proposed commands for 2 videos|
|bvwack -w -b somedir/anotherdir -n 5||Converts 5 videos under somedir/anotherdir|
|bvwack -c -n 10||Moves 10 already converted mkv or avi files to /Volumes/thundar/medai/converted/[od-path]"|
