HBBatchBeast (4 months on) - Now in 64 languages + FFmpeg + remote monitoring + thorough video health check/repair + live log...

Just a quick update on this as I've added a tonne of stuff in since my last post here 4 months ago or so.

A recapitulation on what it does:
"A free GUI application for HandBrake and FFmpeg/FFprobe on Windows, macOS and Linux with an emphasis on multi HandBrake/FFmpeg instance batch conversion (including recursive folder scans and folder watching). The destination folder structure is kept the same as the source folder structure. Media in subfolders is also converted. Multiple folders can be monitored and different conversion presets can be specified for each folder. "

Screenshot - https://i.imgur.com/pSNJFSj.png
Demo page so you can see settings/features (Looks awful on mobile/IE)- http://hbbatchbeast.io/demo
Installation instructions on GitHub - HandBrake, FFmpeg and FFprobe binaries are included in the Windows zip so it should work straight out of the box. On macOS and Linux, HandBrakeCLI needs to be installed (see the installation instructions) - FFmpeg and FFprobe binaries are included in the download.

Main additions:
- Can convert using FFmpeg as well as HandBrake
- Web app so you can monitor conversion progress remotely.
- Thorough health check and repair file feature using FFmpeg based on u/Desani's PowerShell script CLI commands. Huge thanks to him! Check his script out:https://gist.github.com/Desani/129be27da7d735d7c75192ec1aa96c65
- Menus, alerts and 30+ tooltips in 64 languages (translated using Google. If you'd like to contribute to improving the translations then check the translations folder on GitHub)
- Basic benchmark feature (4K h265 sample video used-2.5MB) - Don't take the results on the website too seriously.
- Live log with over 150 statuses.
- FFprobe is now also used during health checking and to allow inclusion/exclusion of files by properties (such as video/audio codec, bitrate, resolution etc). Useful for converting your whole library into a single format such as h265 (files already in h265 can be automatically skipped.)

If you run into trouble then press the 'txt' button in the bottom right corner of the application and send me the log/open an issue on GitHub. If you don't have much available RAM on your machine then make sure to reduce the number of HandBrake/FFmpeg instances on the 'System tab' else conversions may error out.

Filenames with apostrophes/single quotes in cause issues on Linux but there's an option to automatically remove them in the advanced settings section.

Check the change-logs on the release page for all changes since February.

I post each update to HBBatchBeast if you'd like to stay informed. Working on some mobile apps and looking at potential SonarRadarr features among other things.

Hope this helps!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Known Issues in 2.3.3:

Audacity 2.3.3 does not properly support macOS Catalina. There are new
security restrictions in Catalina on using the microphone. For example,
Audacity may run, but fail to record. Catalina was released towards the end
of 2.3.2 development.

FreeNAS or Ubuntu or?

I'm in the process of setting up a new home server, which I haven't done in some time. Currently I have a Mac Mini with a 5TB USB drive attached ... eek.
I've now got a HP ProLient Microserver Gen8 with 16GB of EEC memory + 4x6TB WD Reds. So this hardware is staying, I just need advice on the OS.
I've used FreeNAS in the past, and it worked well as a standard file server. However, I have some requirements of this new server.
Above all, file storage. But, I also want to run SABnzbd + Transmission + CouchPotato + Sonarr (or Sickbeard, whatever is good). It's essentially going to be a media server, with some data storage.
I also have a few more specific requirements, which is where things get a bit more complex. I'm vested in the Apple ecosystem (spare the judgement) and use Apple TV's throughout my home. I do not use Plex and do not want to, so no transcoding is necessary. What I do want however, is to automate the transmuxing of downloaded MKVs to the M4V format. Currently I do this with third party software on macOS called MP4Tools, but it's all incredibly manual. I know it can be scripted using the ffmpeg binary so that may be my option there.
I'll continue using my Mac Mini as the iTunes front end server as sadly there is no other option for Apple TV users to forgo iTunes (again, not using Plex, I have my reasons).
I am not particularly attached to ZFS over any other file system. I just want an OS which is flexible, and not too difficult to use. I am familiar and comfortable with Ubuntu / unix command line, but would not call myself a 'power user' as such.
Ubuntu seems to be the go here, but I am not familiar with ZFS support, and I remember years ago when I played around, it was far too complicated and not mature enough. Again, I'm not attached to the idea of ZFS and any other decent software RAID would suffice. The data is not mission critical, and it's simply a home media server. Performance, space, ease of use, flexibility comes before redundancy and security. Would UFS be fine, or are there better options? Again, not completely familiar with file systems and RAID, so this is where I could use the most help.
Windows would be less than ideal, despite being the most flexible (can run iTunes) simply due to the resource requirements, and I'm not comfortable with their softRAID solutions.
I've done some research, but would like to hear from those who have had personal experience with FreeNAS / Ubuntu and have similar requirements as myself.
Thanks! : )

Swedish mic-only videos and how to make them (by popular demand)

Some of you have noticed that I post "mic-only" videos of the acts in Melodifestivalen on Dailymotion, under the same username as here, and privately asked me how to do it, so this is for you, guys.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's these (they might be taken down by SVT any day now, as usual, so hurry up):
1. SaRaha - Kizunguzungu
2. Swingfly feat. Helena Gutarra - You Carved Your Name
3. SMILO - Weight of the World
4. After Dark - Kom ut som en stjärna
5. Lisa Ajax - My Heart Wants Me Dead
6. Boris René - Put Your Love on Me
7. Oscar Zia - Human
Oscar Zia - Human (reprise)
Lisa Ajax - My Heart Wants Me Dead (reprise)
First of all, you have to record the show from SVT1 HD, or download an HDTV rip from another source coughtorrentscough. This is because you need a recording with 5.1 audio for this to work. Otherwise, don't bother reading the rest.
This tutorial assumes that:
This is a 5.1 speaker configuration: image here
Each speaker plays a different audio channel. A 5.1 surround sound recording will have - that's right - 6 audio channels (I will start the numbering from 0, not 1):
# Abbr. Name
0 LF/FL Front Left
1 RF/FR Front Right
2 CF/FC/C Front Center / Center
3 LFE Low Frequency Effects / Subwoofer
4 LS/SL Surround Left
5 RS/SR Surround Right
In comparison, a stereo sound recording will only have - of course - 2 audio channels:
# Abbr. Name

The sound mix for Melodifestivalen and various other shows (such as Eurovision 2011 and 2013) has:
The main point of this tutorial is that we somehow need to extract the front center channel only.
Initially, I wanted to use Audacity (with the FFmpeg plugin/library) and just export the FC channel with the built-in option in Audacity, but, for some reason, I couldn't get Audacity to recognize my FFmpeg installation, so, for the remainder of this post, we will extract the front center channel using an FFmpeg binary (which is a command-line application).
The thing is, most useful audio editing programs are either:
FFmpeg builds can be found here. You only need the static builds for this.
Unzip the contents to whatever folder you like (no installation required) and add the path of the folder containing ffmpeg.exe, ffplay.exe and ffprobe.exe into the PATH environment variable in Windows. First, go into that folder, click a blank spot on your address bar and copy the folder path into your clipboard.
Adding the path into the Path variable can vary in difficulty, depending on your version of Windows.
  1. Open the Win+X menu (press Win key + X or just right click the start button, if you have one) and go to System > Advanced system settings.
  2. In the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables....
  3. Double click either one of the Path variables that I highlighted.
  4. Find the end of all that text and add a semi-colon (;), followed by the path you copied earlier.
  5. Click all the OK buttons on your way out.
  1. Install Path Editor.
  2. Run it as administrator.
  3. Add your path to one of the lists.
  1. Open the Win+X menu (press Win key + X or just right click the start button, if you have one) and go to System > Advanced system settings.
  2. In the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables....
  3. Double click either one of the Path variables that I highlighted.
  4. Add your path to the list.
  5. Click all the OK buttons on your way out.
This is so that you can use FFmpeg comfortably, no matter the folder you work in.
Test the Path variable by:
  1. Going to a random folder (not the one containing ffmpeg.exe), Shift-rightclicking a blank spot and selecting Open command window here.
  2. Run the command ffmpeg by typing ffmpeg and pressing the Enter key.
  3. If you get a message like this, you're good to go. If it claims that "ffmpeg" can't be recognized, restart your computer.
You can close the command prompt/window.
Go to the folder containing your Melodifestivalen recording and open a command prompt there. Run ffprobe [YOUR_FILENAME_HERE] (replace [YOUR_FILENAME_HERE] with your actual filename). If it's a long filename, you can type the first few characters and press the Tab key. If you have multiple, similarly-named files, you can press Tab multiple times and it will cycle through them. Because who types all that? Don't forget to press Enter.
What we care about is this. I highlighted the information about the tracks. There is a video track (stream #0:0) and an audio track (stream #0:1). File and track numbering starts from 0, not 1. Therefore, "stream #0:1" means "the second track of the first file" (0 = first, 1 = second, 2 = third and so on). Usually, video streams come first, then the audio tracks, then subtitles and chapters. They might not always be in this order, so it's important to know which track is the 5.1 audio track that you need.
Some releases of Melodifestivalen will erroneously show a stereo audio track, when, in fact, it's 5.1. To fix that, you need to extract the audio into its own file, which is what we would have done anyway, so let's do that.
Now, since ffmpeg is a command-line program, you will have to follow a specific syntax.
A general syntax would be:
ffmpeg [INPUT_OPTIONS] -i [INPUT_FILENAME] [OUTPUT_OPTIONS] [OUTPUT_FILENAME]
In order to extract the audio track, we will type something along the lines of:
ffmpeg -i [YOUR_MF_VIDEO_FILENAME] -map [AUDIO_STREAM] -c copy [OUTPUT_FILENAME]
In this example, I will type:
ffmpeg -i Melodifestivalen.2016.Deltavling.1.SWEDiSH.720p.HDTV.x264-xD2V.mkv -map 0:1 -c copy audio_only.ac3
Let's break this down:
Wait for a few seconds (max. 1-2 minutes) while the file is being created.
When the prompt reappears (which, for me, will be A:\Melodifestivalen.2016.Deltavling.1.SWEDiSH.720p.HDTV.x264-xD2V\melodifestivalen.2016.deltavling.1.swedish.720p.hdtv.x264-xd2v>), you will know that the transcoding has finished. As we can see, the file audio_only.ac3 has been created in the same folder.
Let's run ffprobe audio_only.ac3, to see that we only have an audio track (stream #0:0) right now.
Now that we have an audio-only file, we can extract the front center channel:
ffmpeg -i audio_only.ac3 -map_channel 0.0.2 vocals_only.wav
Let's break it down:
Short Q&A time!
Q: Okay, whoa, you lose data with .mp3?
A: Yes, there are lossless audio formats (WAV, FLAC, ALAC) and lossy audio formats (AAC, AC3, MP3). If you convert WAV files to FLAC back and forth, you will not lose a single bit of information. If you, however, convert an MP3 file to MP3, and then you convert the resulted MP3 to MP3 and so on, you will get small quality losses each time. So I'll usually use WAV and let Dailymotion compress my audio. That way, they won't ruin it as badly as they could. Blame them :P
Q: Why don't we all use FLAC, then?
A: Because the files can be 3 or 4 times larger than an MP3. My music collection is in FLAC, by the way.
Q: What about M4A files from iTunes?
A: They use the AAC codec, which, if used correctly, results in smaller files and higher quality than the best MP3 possible. Apple knows what they're doing with their music.
Q: So why did you not just use -c copy?
A: Because it would just copy the entire track instead of only giving me the channel that I need.
Let's continue.
When the prompt reappears, you can open the resulted file and see that, indeed, the music is gone, but the voices still remain. What we can do now is mux (multiplex) the audio back in with the video:
ffmpeg -i Melodifestivalen.2016.Deltavling.1.SWEDiSH.720p.HDTV.x264-xD2V.mkv -i vocals_only.wav -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -map 1:1 -c copy mf1.mkv
Let's break it down:
  • ffmpeg is the name of the program;
  • -i Melodifestivalen.2016.Deltavling.1.SWEDiSH.720p.HDTV.x264-xD2V.mkv means that Melodifestivalen.2016.Deltavling.1.SWEDiSH.720p.HDTV.x264-xD2V.mkv is my first input file (file 0);
  • -i vocals_only.wav means that vocals_only.wav is my second input file (file 1);
  • -map 0:0 means that I want to include track 0 from the first file (thus, the video);
  • -map 0:1 means that I want to include track 1 from the first file (thus, the original audio) - you can leave this part out, if you want;
  • -map 1:0 means that I want to include track 0 from the second file (thus, the vocal-only audio);
  • -c copy means that I don't want to re-encode the tracks;
  • mf1.mkv is the name of my final output file.
It'll take a little longer this time, because it has to copy the whole video (I'm writing a 4.49 GB file here). I think it took, like 3-4 minutes on my end. When you're done, you can just close the command prompt. Don't close it while the files are being created!
Or you could just make short videos of what you want. When muxing MKVs, I much prefer using MKVtoolnix, as I can just cut the parts that I need. And yes, this one has a proper GUI :)
To illustrate the result, I uploaded this:

Result.

Now you can play a video of me playing a video. The password is melodifestivalen.
And there you have it! Happy editing! :)
