Stop your knee from jerking, because "Use VLC" is unacceptable; my workaround of "have a cron job to recode everything to AAC MP4 before watching it" is superior to using that piece of Linux perma-shit.
That workaround would be less annoying if HandbrakeCLI didn't peg all 8 of my cores when transcoding, even when niced.
Update: Every single one of you who chose to interpret "do not suggest VLC" as your cue to engage in banter about VLC has been added to my killfile.
So thanks for that. It's good to get that out of the way and know that I can preemptively ignore you in the future.
