Encoding stops almost immediately after starting
Posted: Wed Aug 14, 2013 4:08 am
Tonight I tried to encode a District 9 DVD for playback on an Apple TV. Almost immediately after starting to encode the main title Handbrake announced it was finished. The output file was 4KB long. When I play it there is a black screen for less than a second and then it is over. I wondered if the problem could be a damaged disk. However, I was able to use Ripit.app to put a copy of the DVD on my hard drive. I tried encoding from the hard drive and HandBrake stopped at exactly the same place. VLC can play the disk (both the original and the ripped copy) without difficulty. The activity log for an attempt to encode the hard drive version for the Apple TV is in the pastebin URL below. Many thanks for any help you can provide.
