    What's the batch file command to launch Batch Converter ...

    What's the batch file command to launch Batch Converter on a named folder with a named profile?

    No provision to set profile, however if you pass a folder on the command line (not in quotes, nothing proceeding it) it will jump to that location.

    Thanks. I really hope you consider adding a command-line option to select the profile.

    For the record, the command to launch Batch Converter with a named folder and all items within selected is:

    DMCFileSelector.exe <filepath>

    where <filepath> must include a drive letter and be unquoted.

    e.g.

    xTxSsKu[1].png

    Note: If an instance of DMCFileSelector.exe is already running, this command uses it rather than start another instance.

    I second this.

    But it wouldn't be particularly useful in my case if it only opens the GUI with a profile selected as I'm looking for a solution to automate the transcoding of new files in my music library for my media player.

    Me too, but though this option would not provide an automatic solution, it would streamline the manual one.

    You could alternatively use CoreConverter.exe, with the disadvantage compared fo DMCFileSelector.exe that (without special programming) it uses only one core.

    TuneFUSION is the program you require:
