I'd like to suggest adding support for batch conversions in Ogg Convert. Thanks for making Theora easier to produce from other formats :)

Hi Fabian,

Sorry this question went unanswered for so long -- I've only just found this facility on Launchpad!

Batch mode is second on my list of things I want to add to OggConvert (first is gettext support for translations). Unfortunately I'm very busy with my university work at the moment, but once I've got some free time I'll look at it again.

Thanks for your interest in OggConvert, and sorry again for ignoring you for so long!

OGGConvert is an elegant application for converting someones media into free formats. However with that being said, without a batch mode its useless for any sort of collection.

My 2 cents,

I definitely agree with this idea. When is it going to be implemented? It was suggested more than two years ago.

I agree and am interested in knowing when it will happen as well. Or even just being able to drop a folder :(

Suggestion :)

Hi Tristan,

Please, recover this feature !
I'm unable to convert many videos one by one, I'm stuck in H264.

Best regards!
