I have a lot of videos, mostly 1080p, that I want to re-encode / compress. A lot of them are, like I said, 1080p - however, they're also very high bitrate (I believe), and are just otherwise encoded with quality, not size, in mind - and I want to change this.
I want to find a tool, or script, that lets me input a list of videos and have it decide what the best format, bitrate, etc. is for each of those videos to shrink the size (And resize to 720p) to a more manageable level.
Is there such a tool? I've found programs that work per video (Like Handbrake), but require you to set the settings of each video you want to encode, by hand - which is really tedious when you're talking about hundreds of videos.
