    Background transcode not working on 2020.4

    Hi there

    I'm having issues getting files to transcode in the background using MC 2020.4 on OS X 10.15.4. Whenever I launch a background transcode, the Background Services Manager icon in the menu bar goes red, and when I hover my mouse over it, it tells me there is a 'Service Status Failure'. When I open the Background Queue, I see all the clips there, but they all just say 'Pending'. I have tried this on 2 projects now with the same result. I have no issues when doing an in-application transcode.

    Any ideas?

    At one of the UNis I teach at background services would never work. Just red arrows.

    I had to demonstrate on my PC laptop.

    Then one day it did work. Not sure what they changes. Maybe some firewall blocking local to the OS?
