[FFmpeg-user] HELP !

Greetings to one and all!!!

I am not a programmer but I had to use FFMPEG due to the fact that a lot of
TV Episodes and Documentaries are coded with the HEVC x265 codec, and my
equipment is not to read said files.  I have looked at a number of examples
to try and come up with a 'formula' that satisfies me.

What I am trying to do is: be able to copy a number of files into a folder
and have Ffmpeg convert the first, then loop to the second, etc. etc. and
obviously stop at the last one in the loop.  Is this possible, and how?

This is the current formula I use and I would like to add the loop into it:

ffmpeg -i "xxx.zzz" -c:v lib264 -framerate 25 -crf 21 -c:a libmp3lame -b:a
190k -b:v 3000k -filter:a "volume=2" "xxx.zzz"

(I am hard of hearing, that is why I doubled the volume)

Is this formula set out correctly? Should the variables be re-arranged from
the order they are in?  Is there anything else I should add to make it

I would greatly appreciate any help and assistance you can render.
