This process has work without incident for all the chapters with the exception of Chapter 13. It's output is listed as "file" instead of the "mkv" that I set it up to do:

Operating system and version Windows 10 Home 64-bit:

Re: Output saved as "file" instead of "mkv"

I was able to fix the problem by restarting Handbrake.

It looks like the destination lacks the .mkv extension; perhaps you accidentally removed it when naming in HandBrake. You do not need to encode the file again, simply rename it to add .mkv at the end and re-add to Kodi.
