Re: Problem with corrupted converted/exported files

FIXED!

fwiw - if anyone runs into this problem (corrupt MP4 conversions) Ken at BI support nailed it. He suggested unchecking the "2 pass for fast open" option on the convert/export page. That's all it needed. I don't remember enabling it (or not) but that was all I needed to save MP4 files again.

Re: Problem with corrupted converted/exported files

Hello TimG

No even small files won't convert to MP4's. I am able to convert pretty large (>300mb) files to AVI tho. If its a memory issue I'd be pretty surprised. BI shows 3.89gb memory usage. The system has 64gb minus 12gb I use as a ram disk. Overall task manger shows:

Re: Problem with corrupted converted/exported files

Tried changing to every option in the encoder profile list. Very discouraging. I even changed my viewer thinking it might be that. Just can't convert to MP4

Re: Problem with corrupted converted/exported files

Thanks Mikebwca!

I just saw your BI version was more recent than mine. I updated to 5.0.9.5 and all is well :)

Thank you very much!

Problem with corrupted converted/exported files

This has happened before. When I try to convert/export to MP4 format the exported file is corrupt. I can tell if its going to be corrupt by watching the green 'working' timeline on the conversion screen. If it goes all the way to end the exported file is fine. If it closes that screen before it reac...

Re: Critter Cams

Hi Raccoontodd - nice images :)

I have an Amcrest PTZ mounted on a tree in the woods for catching critter clips. Last night I snagged my 1st bear. I am adding IR illuminators to really light up my area of interest and eliminate the 'white walker' eye look. What are you using to light up your area?
