Reload default preset for every source added #1779
It would be nice to have a user selectable option in the Handbrake preferences to forcedly reload the default preset for every new source added (either via open or drag and drop).
At the moment the settings for one video are passed through the next source. This might or might not be wanted, hence the request.
Ok an example is the video quality. Say default is 28 for me but one source only I move it to 24 for whatever reason, the very next file I drop on Handbrake will still get 24 unless I manually reload the preset via "Reload" click or manually move it to 28. Same thing if I set the greyscale filter. This happened to me multiple times I have a black and white input I set the greyscale to optimise the output size but forget to unset for the next video which gets converted in greyscale :-(
I read what you wrote about video and filter... but why does it have to be related to the source if I can ask? My preset is there for a reason, it's there because 90% of the video I process are good with the preset. So it's a safaguard for the handbrake user to blindly assume all the parametes are set to the default because that's the starting point wanted. If we have to go and recheck all the parameters because something is resetted to the preset and something else not it probably defeats the concept. Beside this if I manually click "Reload" it will indeed affect filters and video so why shouldn't a drag and drop do the same?
My opinion of course.
