HELP: Encoding MakeMKV output no longer works

Post by fastAG »

Hi folks,

I've been using MakeMKV and Handbrake successfully for years but in the last months or so run into a problem where Handbrake simply fails to encode. MakeMKV spits out the .m4v as always but when i feed it into Handbrake i pretty quickly get a 'failed to encode' error.

My current HandBrake version is 1.3.1 (2020010400). I using a Mac Mini (2018) with macOS Catalina 10.15.2.

Here's a patebin link to the log file: https://pastebin.com/RBbVhbgC

Hopefully I've provided enough information. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
fastAG

It's having trouble creating the output file.

Make sure /Volumes/homes/plex/Media/Movies/ exists and is writable.

Thanks for the quick reply Rodeo. I'm ripping it directly to a Synology network drive. It's odd that the user I have set up for this would no longer have access. In any case, I tried connecting as admin and now it's working just fine. I'll have to figure out happened with the user permissions on the synology.

thanks again for you help!

Synology lets you set up per-user quotas, so it might be that the user had reached that limit.

@woodstock

I just checked and I don't have quotas set for any of the user accounts. So it's still a mystery.
