I have same issue, exporting directly from FCPX, without Compressor.
Actually I was hopping that using Compressor will solve the problem, but seems it doesn't, after your posting. FCPX 10.0.3 had no this problem (it had another issue, couldn't re-export a project already exported)
I found out if the project is around 10-12 minutes, than it works, but if it larger, about 20 minutes it doesn't work, it creates just few .ts segments or sometimes none, and is stuck at 95%, always at 95%.
Also, once you get a 95% stuck job, there is no way to successfully export other project, even if it is just 1 minute long. The only way is to stop FCPX, delete preferences files and all generated files, restart computer, all this crap until your Share Monitor shows no running task and the stuck processes are gone.

I realize others have reported similar issues – here and in the FCX forum. Although I haven't been able to duplicate the problem, it's obviously an issue for some and I'm not saying it's not a possible bug.
Try the usual trouble-shooting steps as outlined here.

I have tested the software on 4 Macs (Lion, Mac Book Pro) and it was not able to complete the process.
Is someone, with a Lion System, able to complete this process?
Currently Being ModeratedApr 26, 2012 6:58 PM (in response to blacksheep_2011)
Yes…completed on Lion. Perhaps your source file?
Currently Being ModeratedApr 26, 2012 11:25 PM (in response to Russ H)
I have test it with different files but always the same result.
Sometimes in 1 of 10 tries I can finish short videos.
Is there a way to get a log of the post process?

In the Share Monitor, hit the Inspector icon and you should get a log.
My last test was ten pages.

I have the same problem as 'blacksheep_2011' and others. I have tried the trouble-shooting steps you refered to, BUT it doesn't help.
Prior to version 4.0.3 it worked just fine for me. I have made about 50 batches with the 'HTTP Live Streaming' template. All OK. Since 4.0.3, none has completed. Very frustrating.
I have Mac Pro 2x2.4 Quad-Core Xeon with 32 GB internal and running 10.7.3.

What OS are you running?
Of the four tests I've run, three were on 10.6 and one on 10.7. (It's easier for me to test on SL.) I've used both SD and HD (Pro Res , XDCAM and h.264) files as source fiiles. I've shared out from FCX and directly from Compressor. Are you submitting to a cluster? One thing I haven't done is tried anything >4 minutes.
It's sounding more and more like an update bug, but I so far I haven't re-created the right conditions.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 29, 2012 7:59 AM (in response to Russ H)
for me it's definitely not an update bug.
My compressor is a new installation.
Short files seems to work, bigger files make trouble.
I would suggest you testing with files >10min.
I have 10.7.3 installed on a Mac book pro.
Thanks for your effort.

FWIW, I just did a 13 minute movie directly from Compressor and it completed the entire batch (with all the segments). This was done with 4.0.3 but I will add that it was on my Snow Leopard system, not Lion.

I have tested movies as short as < 2 minutes and > 30 minutes. With the same result.It doesn't complete. I have waited more than 24 hours as well.
I have tried to submit to This Computer, This Computer Plus and a cluster of one Mac Pro and two Mac Mini all running the same OS (10.7.3) and Compressor 4.0.3.
I have also used FCP X (10.0.4) share option Export for HTTP Streaming... . Doesn't finnish either.

I'll try it on the Lion system tonight and let you know. Just one thought…in Compressor, you have to specify the destination for the job action…in addition to the jobs' destination…otherwise you'll get a fail. Probably not the case here but had to mention it.

It is definitively a project size issue.
I have a project about 22 minutes long and is always stuck at 95%, never succeeded to finish export.
I split it in two smaller projects, one 13 minutes and one 9 with no other changes. I can successfully export both of them to http live streaming.
This problem is not only with Compressor but also when sharing in FCPX without Compressor.
The source files are AVCHD 1080p from a Canon camcorder on a MBP with latest Lion.
I think is good you guys fill in some bug reports with Apple. This will help.

It is not a project issue for me. Have tested a 2 minutes long project; stops around 95% complete.
I will fill in a bug report to Apple.
