30 OK.  I think I get it.  It's kinda like dispatch-conf except it is for
31 files not lines in a file.  No 'merge' option tho. Kinda hard to merge a
32 video.  lol 
34 I may try that sometime.  I may copy the files to a different location
35 just in case I screw up something.  It won't be the real files so no
36 harm if I botch it.  This is mostly because I haven't seen it run
37 before.  I don't know what I'm doing.  ;-) 
39 Since I usually name the directory torrent, I may edit that part.  That
40 or change the name on my directories to temp. 
42 If you have other scripts, I'd like to see them.  Others might too. 
43 Someone may google for a way to do something and run up on them too.

49 P. S.  Now I'm trying to figure out how to change the resolution of all
50 videos in a directory.  Usually going from 1080p to 720p.  If you have a
51 script for that, awesome.  I'm currently using handbrake and it works
52 but there may be a better way.
