Post by roz@wellwomenofcolor.com »

Description of problem or question:
Ive never had a problem with using handbrake but now all of a sudden I'm getting this error message that the destination isnt valid. Because of this it wont allow me to compress my video.

Can you tell me why this is happening?

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
I'm using version 1.2.2



Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):




HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

Please replace this text with the contents of your log file between the two code tags - OR -  provide a pastebin URL in place of these 3 lines.
If you are unable to do so, please state why so we can help you.

Without logs, we're handicapped in what we can suggest. You didn't even mention your operating system, or what you've changed recently. Things like adding/removing drives or installing an operating system update that changes permissions can all affect what is and isn't a "valid location".

Version 1.2.2 is rather old; the 1.3.x series replaced it.
