I have a hopefully not-so-unique situation. I want to use mencoder to transcode a bunch of video files from one format to another. There's several files and doing then manually would be just not fun. Also, I have a dual-core processor so I can have two mencoders running simultaneously. I'm on Windows. I am looking for a solution to allow me to specify a bunch of files, the command line parameters I want, and to run two threads at once, and specify an output directory for the finished files. Is there something that will allow me to do this?

for %i in (*.ext) do mencoder ... -o "%i.avi" "%i"
you can recode all the files with the ext extension in the current directory
Mencoder uses multiple threads and windows should assign different threads to different processors automatically
