Conversion has no video

Feb 22, 2014 at 2:08 AM
New to MCEBuddy. When converting using the MP4 Profile, I sometimes receive a converted mp4 that has just audio and no video. Seems to happen on only certain channels. Any ideas what might be going on?

Unfortunately this is not helpful. Please read the read me before posting thread and then post the link to the full debug conversion log where there is not video.

I have uploaded the debug file (hockeypfef_debug.zip)

I went though it, you log file is incomplete - it stop about 70% into the file and then nothing.

Importantly you're on a VERY old version of MCEBuddy 2.3.11 - probably 500+ bug fixes, features and enhancements since. Please update to the latest version and if you're still facing the issue upload hte log and we'll fix it. (we don't support old versions)
Mar 1, 2014 at 12:29 PM
I upgraded to the latest public version and reuploaded the file. (hockeypfef_debug2.zip). Seems to be acting the same way.
Mar 1, 2014 at 1:50 PM
I'm sorry we only support the latest version 2.3.15, there' no way to know what's going on with something 2 version ago.
