I have about 50 small videos (and a few large videos). I want to convert them all with the SAME settings. Its basically change audio to X with Y bitrate, change video to xvid. and do full processing on the video and audio. Then force the FPS to 15 since every program i tried (including virtualdub) thinks it 0.3 FPS.

How do i apply all of these settings to all of my files?

See this article : "VirtualDub - What it is and how to use it" under the section "Exporting Video".

The interesting part for you is the last section called "Job Control", that describes how to process an entire directory.

Not answering your question, but MediaCoder is excellent for batch transcoding.

I liked it however like EVERYTHING else (except virtualdub) it fails to convert my video :(. I got error 13 which says try another video source >_>. – acidzombie24 Sep 27 '09 at 18:37
Sounds like a missing codec. Did you try installing the extra codecs pack – Dave Webb Sep 27 '09 at 18:55
