A bug in the encoder code was fixed. The bug only occoured when a session did not start on frame 0 or 1. If that was the case the encoder would create empty output files and the session gallery would display several errors.
Similarly the encoder could skip part of the encoding if not all frames were listed corretly in the system.

Both issues have been fixed.

I think it is currently generating the output file.
In the sessions details, you can already see the output file, and every time I refresh the size is getting larger.

But I can even now click on the filename and the browser tries to download something.
The result is 0 bytes.

I don\'t know if this is only because you recreate the files, or if this is normal.
If it is normal, please think about only having a link to click on whenever the file is finished (and sent to at least one mirror).

This is not normal, usually the files are only visible as soon as the encoding pass has completed.

They are visible before they are sent to the mirrors because the timegap between finishing encoding and starting the mirror transfer is usually less than 30 secs. If someone clicks the link while the file hasn\'t yet been transfered they will either be able to download the file from the main server or get a warning about the file not yet being available (it\'s more or less random what happens).
