Can't communicate with engine on creating new conversion tasks.
I currently have a "Convert to MKV" task that I was running everything through but I've began using a different comskip for channel ABC and wanted to create a seperate conversion process for it. The problem I kept running into was every time
I backed out after making the changes it gave me a "Can't communicate with server engine. Changes not saved." message.
I finally ended up making the tasks piecemeal.....create task but leave destination dir blank..save......go back in...add destination dir, save..back out....go back in...open settings....add custom rename mask.....check extract mc info....add multichannel audio..select
english language.....back out save....finally go back in and give it path to custom comskip...back out..save......then it wouldn't let me rename the default "Convert to MKV task" so I had to repeat the same scenario to create a new "Convert
to MKV (Default)" task......and finally disable the old "Convert to MKV" task.
I'm running 2.3.14 Beta from 07/10.
I was able to work around the issue but could not find any reason FOR the issue...the engine was running....I was able to build the task piecemeal using probably no more than 20 seconds per section before exiting and making sure it would save. I'm not sure
what logs if any will help and can only hope the error is easily reproducible if you try to create new conversion tasks with a custom comskip, rename mask and file mask.
The filename mask used were "WTVMDT_" on one and ";~WTVMDT_*" [Your forum is removing asterisks from the filename masks] on other. I had to use the filename mask vs channel mask and include the "_" since I have
a WTVMDT and a WTVMDT2.
