Hello Rboy,

It seems that new version 2.3.11 does not take unsupported container+codec into consideration when doing the conversion.

Here is the conversion log:

My profile looks like this:

I'd expect it to convert with ffmpeg since profile says handbrake is unsupported for wtv+h264 combination but

Am I doing something wrong ?

you're right, here's a small bug in the code which I've fixed in 2.3.12

Unfortunately there's no work around for it.

No problem and thanks.

By the way, are you aware of metadata bug with TV shows ? --stick "Movies" are getting correctly set but --stick "TVShows" tag episodes without any Season or Episode number to "2". If you want I can attach conversion log.

I'm overwriting the metadata myself but I was just wondering if you needed the logs.

Yes please send me the logs. I'm not aware of this issue.

 

The default is to Tag TVShows unless it's a movie. I didn't quite understand the problem. What should it be tagged as?

I did further testing and Season / Episode is not coming from EPG but from theTVDB. theTVDB has at times questionable entries and Baby Jake series is one of them. 

I must have forgotten to turn off MCEBuddys internet look-up with the new version.
Sorry for the confusion and looking forward to .12 version (for unsupported codec feature.)
Kind regards,

Hello Rboy,

Unsupported flag is not working even with latest 2.3.12 beta version. (just downloaded)
