Mkv Files Corrupting

Post by pazamataz »

Hey, I have recently encountered a problem with renaming *.mkv's, if I manually rename them they are fine but if I batch convert the files they seem to lose all of their data.
Just wondering if you have any ideas and if its happening to anyone else.
Cheers

By convert do you mean Rename with FileBot???

FileBot NEVER touches the file itself, thus FileBot cannot corrupt files.

Can you reliably reproduce the problem?

What's OS?

What version? OS, Java, FileBot

filebot -script fn:sysinfo output?

Which files? Path? Drive? Filesystem? Internal or external drive? Have you checked for Filesystem corruption?

Can you reproduce or not reproduce the issue with other Java-based not-Java-based tools?

I mostly have all my files as mkvs and have not run into this issue. My guess would also be filesystem corruption/bad disk. I am using windows 8 and works fine with mkvs

I have this same problem and can reproduce it.
osx Yosemite
Java SE 7, filebot 4.5.3
installed filebot through caskbrew
Affects all files that are renamed, ntfs, external hdd, checked for corruption with disk utility.
Please someone tell me how to fix this...

Before someone tells me its a permissions issue, all corrupted files are 777.

1.
You're using Java 8, otherwise FileBot 4.5.3 couldn't possibly work.

2.
In this post you completely fail to mention that you're writing to an NTFS file system which is officially not supported by Apple.

3.
The issue is possibly related to permissions or extended attributes, but the main issue would be due to bugs in the 3rd party NTFS file system driver that you're using.
