Until yesterday, the SUPER video converter was working just fine, but then suddenly, it wouldn't respond to any of the videos I had planned on converting. It gives this Message:
[quote]Possible Causes for Encoding Failure
An ERROR has occured while encoding. the most common possible reasons causing error:
If you did not check "Use Directshow", you may try to check it on, as you may have a working ActiveX filter installed on your PC that could
read the codecs of your input file.
If the default "NoChange" Video Scale is selected but your input file has its height or width not divisible by 16 then SUPER @ can't hande it.
Choose any other pre-defined VideoScaleSize and re-encode.
Your input source file may not be a valid multimedia clip due to a damaged header, corrupted/segmented data or a truncated file. Or maybe your
imput file has unsupported cocdecs. Here again, you may verify the structure of your input file by double clicking it, te Media Analysis Box opens
to display its info, codecs, and other internal data..
There was an interruption of the encoding process due to Disk Space, Slow PC, RAM drainage, CPU Overload or a simple user manual
interruption. Try Again./quote]

Assuming no changes were made in your PC, either SUPER is corrupted or your file has a problem. Does it do the same thing with a file that converted successfully before? And you might check one of your files with MediaInfo to see if it has any of the problems that SUPER complained about.
And you might make it clear which program you are talking about. 'Super Video Converter' and the video converter program 'SUPER' are two different programs with similar names, just to make things confusing.
No changes have been made, and so far every video I've tried converting today have the same results, with the same error message.
the program is SUPER v2007.build.22
when the problem started it was SUPER v2007.build.21, so I decided to upgrade it, but it seems to have the same problem.
I will also add that the videos I've tried to convert with SUPER that used to go through but have started failing a week ago were flv files downloaded directly through RealPlayer SP, and the videos that still successful at converting were downloaded through either KeepVid.com or VideoDownloadX.com
Why do think it's like that?
Why not use Keepvid or VideoDownloadX to grab the videos, then? Or a browser download helper. I'm not sure, but it sounds like RealPlayer could be adding metadata or other things to the FLV that converters may not like.
The error message in SUPER is, of course, SUPER's generic, catch-all error message.If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
