PowerShell: AVI to mp4 conversion, and related

I’ve been using Handbrake CLI wrapped in PowerShell to convert some bulky old AVI files to MP4, and then to copy those to DVD for another layer of backup.

Some scripts here, here, here and here.

I have just finished a pretty extensive repo and Wiki on this subject, on GitHub, here. The intended audience for this is those who can find their way around Windows, but who know nothing about PowerShell.

I’ve now made a video here to illustrate just the AVI to mp4 conversion part.
