(I thought I would write up a quick setup guide to help others and save time looking through threads. Thanks to @J3n50m4t @Datamonkeh @Admin9705 for the initial help in getting the correct coding to successfully install)

Until Handbrake gets implemented into the PlexGuide installation setup, you can manually install this great application by the below code.

HandBrake is a tool for converting video from nearly any format to a selection of modern, widely supported codecs.

Reasons you’ll love HandBrake:
  1. Convert video from nearly any format
  2. Free and Open Source
  3. Multi-Platform (Windows, Mac and Linux)

@pommy did you have any insight on the best place the input/output folders? I was going to try pointing rclone to a "convert" folder then modifying move.sh a little to clone from "convert".
