    HELP!  "Error: Profile validation Error"

    Elgriyo

      Hi all,

      I'm using newtek tricaster with Adobe Media Encoder 3. So far I've been able to stream without problems, even after personalizing profiles. This was using VP6 codec. Now that I had to switch to H264 I'm still able to stream files, but I cannot save those files, no matter what profile I use, everytime I check the Save file box, I get an error "Media Encoder finished prematurely. Try Again", when I look at the directory, a log file is created. (if i only stream, it works fine).

       

      Here's a log example, and also a .xml profle that i'm currently use

          Change the output tag as done below:

           

          <output>

                <rtmp>

                      <url>rtmp://</url>

                      <backup_url></backup_url>

                      <stream>video</stream>

                </rtmp>

                <file>       

                      <path>filepath.f4v</path>

                </file>

          </output>

            Thanks,

            I will try changing the profile as you suggested, but Tricaster automatically changes some tags. And even if I do not put an extension to the file or I manually (on Tricaster) change it to .f4v. it changes it back to .flv....

             

            I'll keep you posted (I hope that it works)
