Part 1: Batch Convert DVD Video_TS Folders Using Handbrake

Actually, HandBrake could batch convert DVD_TS folders for you. On HandBrake interface, it’s not called batch. On HandBrake, you can queue VIDEO_TS rips to convert. You have to queue each DVD video_ts folder for ripping. The Queue feature performs much like batch conversion.

The below steps would show you how to batch convert DVD video_TS folders using HandBrake’s Queue feature in detail:

  1. Download and install HandBrake on your computer. If your DVD Video_TS folders are encrypted, install libdvdcss for HandBrake.
  2. Get your source DVD folders ready for converting.
  3. Launch HandBrake and then click the “Source” button to browse and load source DVD folders.
  4. Select the titles in DVD video_ts folder for converting.
  5. Then, select a preset profile for output file.
  6. Then, click the “Add to Queue” button on the toolbar.to add loaded titles to Queue window.
  7. Now, you are able to add another DVD Video_TS folder and repeat the above steps until you add loaded DVD video_TS folders to the Queue interface.
  8. Select the “Show Queue” button on the toolbar to see the queued encodes, or “Jobs”.
  9. Then, on the “Queue” interface, click the green “Start” button to start batch converting DVD Video_TS folders using HandBrake.

Once the conversion completes, you then get all your source DVD video_TS folders batch converted. Obviously, HandBrake enables you to batch convert DVD folders in a different way. You have to firstly add titles from one DVD folder to Queue, and then add more titles from other DVD folders to Queue for batch converting. This would be troublesome since you have to repeat the operation many times. What’s more, you could only load a title of source DVD folder for batch converting. It’s time consuming.
