Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It looks like that loop command will name the output files 1.avi, 2.avi, 3.avi, 4....Is this the case???? Is there any option to put in that command to retain their original file names with an extra character added to the end?? Like homevideo.avi and homevideo1.avi???
I understand even less than JungMin but I'd want to have a batch command encode multiple xvid's with 2pass (which as far as I know require 2 different commands).
how should I do it?
The first good step would be to not reopen a SIX YEAR OLD thread, and hijack it with your own question, but rather to open your own thread. The second good step would be to identify the commands that you need to run. If you know those commands, then you can easily reference one of the THOUSANDS of bash scripting tutorials, to grab a list of files, and run the command(s) you want on each file, looping through until you're done.
more than likely now, someone WILL reply to this thread trying to help the OP wasting their time, as they would expect any thread they see to be less that ancient. There is no need to be so negative about it, especially as you WERE given help and advice. In order to reply you will have be presented with a screen advising you that the thread is old and you should start your own thread, but you chose to ignore that request.
