    Restarting media browser?

    gregf62545650 Level 1

      Hi,

      I set my media browser to run overnight but unfortunately, my computer went to sleep and the media browser didn't create proxies for all my clips.

      Is there a way of getting the media browser to restart and continue where it left off?

      I still have the browser open.

          If you mean Media Encoder, there's an option in the top line of the right-side queue listing to resume processing. It's an arrow, I believe, like a "play" button type arrow.

            Thanks! Yes, correction: media encoder! The ones that weren't encoded show either stop or fail and I can see the play button you mentioned but it's not active. 

            The fails give me the following messages: An error was encountered while writing the output file. The output destination could not be found. Check that the output directory still exists. If the output directory is on a network or external device, check that the connection is active.

            This would been because when the PC went to sleep, it would be seen as a disconnection from the  external hard drive the clips and proxie files are stored on.

            Is there a way I can get the encoder to restart these stopped and failed clips now I have the connection "awake"?

              Ok, I'm a goose! I'm looking at old injest files that failed and stopped! I obviously need to clear these notifications before creating new proxie files!

              Thanks again for your help! Much appreciated!

                I often forget when I queue to Me that I really should go clear the list of files that have been processed before adding new. It gets so confusing.
