in reply to Escaping single quote in $string

Ok, I re-looked at what I was doing and I'm starting to see what my problem is. So what I'm doing is assigning $infile to $outfile and changing the extension on outfile, then plugging those in to handbrakeCLI to do the conversion. I was trying to do the search and replace on the $outfile, when I should be doing it on the $infile. So, it looks like as of now, it seems to be working.

    I take it you're using the system($string) syntax (or similar) for calling out to handbrake? Have you tried the system(@list) syntax? It doesn't involve the shell, so you don't need to escape the file names.
