I know, I've looked for this error in the archives and can't pinpoint what's going on. I can upload a video to my Vimeo and YouTube accounts from Final Cut Pro X but if I try to upload one from Compressor, big fail. I have been able to make it work before but apparently this is not a good week for Compressor. I trashed my preferences, ran Compressor Repair and no love. Any recommendations? Compressor 4 has been nothing but frustrating for me. I use both the Compressor templates and made my own custom settings and still... sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. This week? No.

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    From your description (except for your subject title) it sounds like the file is encoded but it doesnt take the next step to the job action…or is it that the upload starts but doesn't complete?


    On a "good week" for Compressor what kind of jobs are you typically submitting…other than Web Sharing for You Tube?
