    I have a couple of utility programs that I’m working on and I’m wondering if there is enough interest for me to make them full V1 add-ins.

    The first is Automatic Scheduled File Delete. It will monitor a specified folder(s) and once a day deletes any file that is older than a specified number of days.

    The second is a trans-coding tool. It will use Handbrake’s command line version to do the trans-coding. Just copy the original video file to the specified folder and app will launch handbrakecli to trans-code to a different specified folder. Just configure the in folder, out folder and the handbrake compression settings.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    I always hate to delete data but an add-in that would gather that data and move it to a folder you create, say a designated Archive Folder would be great. We use a product at work called Folder Sizes. it has a ton of features but also a nice price tag.

    Or at least put them into a .zip file to save space. Or maybe move to a unduplicated location.

    I think they both sound like fantastic ideas. Like the duplicate file finder add-in i was discussing not long ago people will find a use for the delete utility. I can already think of one for myself.

    As for a transcoding tool that's a no brainer! Very popular stuff. I would like to try it and have it monitor a folder or multiple folders and place the transcoded file in yet another folder. That would be awesome.

    Thanks for your time. I hope to see these produced into add-ins!

    Sounds good. I'd love to try and be willing to help offset some costs....to a point :lol:

    as far as the handbrake option goes, when I transcode, I am usually doing this on discs with multiple shows on them that I want transcoded and named. For example, this usually happens with TV shows, and I'll have 4 shows per disc, and they all need to be named properly.

    Right now I do it manually, and usually use a separate pc just for the transcoding.
    Remember, everything said has already been said.

    One other option would be to transcode mpeg2 .wtv files to mpeg4 to save space. That would be great. Or also to take a 16:9 720p/1080i video and crop it to 4:3 480p.
