There’s a lot of little tools and tricks I use when managing my video files that either take quite a few clicks or typing a lot into command prompt. Well thanks to Dillon aka VodBox and his new tool, pyWinContext, that’s no longer the case!
With this tool, you can manage your context menu entries with ease and set up any number of commands and actions to be run with just one click. This has truly revolutionized my productivity.




I'm an idiot and didn't put the commands in the description. They're there now, but also here:
H265 Nvenc conversion 420
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -c:v hevc_nvenc -pix_fmt yuv420p -c:a aac -b:v 100000k -maxrate:v 200000k -b:a 320k "%~dnp1.mp4"

VP9 Transcode
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -c:v libvpx-vp9 -b:v 4000k -c:a libopus -b:a 320k "%~dnp1.webm"

ProRes 60FPS Lock
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -vf fps=60 -c:v prores -profile:v 2 -c:a pcm_s16le ""

ProRes 30FPS lock
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -vf fps=30 -c:v prores -profile:v 2 -c:a pcm_s16le ""

Remux MKV/FLV to MP4
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -map 0 -codec copy "%~dnp1.mp4"

Convert to GIF
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -vf "fps=30,palettegen" -y "%~dnp1-palette.png"
ffmpeg -i "%~1" -i "%~dnp1-palette.png" -lavfi "fps=30 [x]; [x][1:v] paletteuse" -y "%~dnp1.gif"
del "%~dnp1-palette.png"

THERE IS A TWEAK THAT YOU CAN USE MORE THAN 15 FILES. SEARCH GOOGLE FOR REGISTRY TWEAKS. Its Windows limitation. I have it somewhere in my files. Ill post it if i remember to find it. Cool App

I've seen that 15 file limitation for other things in Windows. I think that's a limitation within explorer itself. I'm sure you'll notice that with other things in the context menu besides that, like open with, using the same file type for example.

BTW, I didn't know that FFmpeg had that much functionality with the command line. I've only used it to open MP4 audio with audacity, thanks for showing me this! I'm going to see what I can come up with and I'll let you know if I find something really useful that I think you'll like!

Had variable framerate issues all the time with working with cell phone recorded footage. For a while, my Galaxy S9e was the only "good" camera I had, and when a VFR would cause problems it was such a pain since I used an adapter to record my standalone mic directly to the smartphone footage (even manually set to 1080p60). Handbrake didn't always seem to fix the issue. This tool will be great not just for what you show it for, but for those using their smartphone cameras for their content too! Good stuff.

Really cool little tool there. I've taken to making a bash script for whatever codec I need to transcode to (prores and HEVC mostly), but it'd still be nice to have something like this on Linux.

Hell, if I knew more about coding, it's something I'd look into doing myself.
