I have been using xmedia recode for a long time now, and all of a sudden it crashes when i try to write files.
But the weird stuff doesn't stop here. It's only sometimes that it crashes.
I have series, episodes 1-12 and all episodes besides episode 2 will encode? When i try to encode episode 2, it crashes?
This is problem just appeared. I haven't had that problem before?
I don't know what to do?
The files are mkv containers, so i have tried opening them up, and compare them to the other episodes, but there's no difference? It's the same kind of files? So I don't understand why all of a sudden it starts acting up?

How old is your external hard drive (I assume it's a disk write error of some sort)
Ah-ha! So you ADMIT you are using an external hard drive? Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, ...
Sorry, I may have misread your post - I thought you said the errors were random and just started happening. So if you repeat the test (perhaps writing to a different drive), do certain episodes always crash, and the others never crash? What error message do you get - can you post a typical screenshot?
I write to my D drive for the moment. Yes, for the time being, it's episode 2 of a certain series that keeps crashing XMR. The rest of the episodes goes without problems.
[Attachment 42374 - Click to enlarge] this is the error message i get. (Sorry the text is in Danish, but i think you get what i mean)
A typical unhelpful Windows message: "XMedia Recode has stopped working."
Unfortunately, XMedia does not seem to create log files that might help trace the error (as an XMedia user, I am disappointed)
My suggestion would be to try encoding the video with ffmpeg directly and note any errors that come up.
Or choose another program that creates proper error logs. I don't know what to suggest, other than VirtualDub FilterMod.
