    Background Service Failing

    Hi All,

    Just trying Ingesting and Transcoding using BG Service works direct but in the queue it is failing with this error.

    Exception:BG_UniSink instance is not compatible with BG_CompositeSink instance.

    Any ideas....Harry

    Transcoding is the problem by the looks...transcoding via Media Encoder now and then queuing.

    Anybody run into this?  I'm having the same issue as Harry on my 2018.12.2 install.  No background transcode for UHD clips captured from DJI Osmo Pocket 4k.  All clips error out:

    I gather it works while not using BG Transcoding, like for me? I think maybe its the codec, BG works for most, just not some.

    If you have a huge amount use Media Encoder....I had 65 days worth...therapy awaits...

    Having this problem AGAIN.  H.264 files.  Garden variety stuff.  Should be a piece of cake.  Anyone else seen this error in the background queue?  Foreground transcoding works without a hitch.

    Re: Background Service Failing

    Hi Jason,

    Hopefully a fix soon, it just hates H264. Has worked with previous version as I do a yearly Series, I know it used to work.

    Best I can offer is Media Encoder in Background I was going to DNxHD120 or 85.

    It was actually quicker on huge volumes of work quick ingest and faster transcode. ie 65 days worth.

    I havent tested on latest release on 12.6 at moment...Good Luck...Harry
