HandbrakeCLI Encode failed (error 3)

Post by svibs »

I have a number of VIDEO_TS folders that I'm attempting to transcode to MP4s that are failing with the following error:
Encode failed (error 3)

What's odd it that the transcode succedes if I use the full Handbrake application instead of HandbrakeCLI

Here's what may command args look like:

Code: Select all

HandbrakeCLI.exe  --input "\\media-nas1\share\MyMovies\Blue Man Group - How to be a Megastar Live!" --main-feature --output "\\media-nas1\share\MyMovies\Blue Man Group - How to be a Megastar Live!\Blue Man Group: How To Be a Megastar Live.mp4"  --format av_mp4 -m -e x264


and here's what the console output looks like:

Encode failed (error 3).

HandBrake has exited.
I'm running HandbrakeCLI version 1.3.3 as is the Handbrake application. OS is Windows 10 1909. DVDs in question were all ripped using AnyDVD running on a Windows 7 machine.

Any thoughts?

I would guess your destination name/path is invalid.

Kind of a give-away. Your NAS isn't letting handbrake read the source. Although it is weird that the NAS allows enough reading to determine video content and predict how many frames will be coming.

Fix the permissions and it should work.

I nearly always take MKVs produced from MakeMKV as my source for Handbrake, so I might be way off here, but is your source encrypted/copy protected?

Lots of log entries about Encrypted DVD support not available and CSS authentication not available.

libavformat cannot open the output; most likely a permissions error.

Your output file name has a “:” in it. Thus it probably can’t be created

And the winner is...

Yes, this turned out to be the issue. I have a database of ripped DVDs that includes the DVD title, folder location, running time, etc. I have an application that reads info from the database, iterates through the records using the folder path and DVD title to construct an MP4 destination path. Problem is some titles have colons and other invalid file name characters in them. Of course, when I was using the full version of Handbrake to transcode these problem children I was using a simple destination path and file name which made it look like HandbrakeCLI was the problem. Anyway, I think this is sorted out. Thanks for the responses!
