Some encodes work. Other will not open

Post by mosesthecoot » Sat Jan 12, 2019 5:01 am

Description of problem or question:
Hello, I am new here and have a very limited knowledge of video encoding in general. I am just trying to archive my dvds onto a digital format. Specifically, I've used Handbrake to rip 11 seasons of The Simpsons and put them on a thumbdrive. To my dismay, only the first 5 seasons worked flawlessly and the second half of my project with not open - even on VLC. I had not changed any settings between these seasons. Even in season 6, where the issue began, half of them work, and half of them will not open. I don't understand what could be causing this. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.


Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

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)

Code: Select all
