[FFmpeg-user] Need to convert 11k files, can ffmpeg run without console window?

Hey there,

I have ~11k small files I need to convert, wrote a script, everything is working fine, however each file opens up a console window, which grabs focus, so I can’t do anything on the computer while it’s running.

Is there a way to get ffmpeg’s console window to either pop in the background, without taking focus, or preferrably prevent it from opening alltogether?

Thanks :)
