Nero Recode Stalls while Encoding

I am using Window 7 Pro and Nero Platinum 2014. While encoding dvds, Recode keeps stalling. I have deleted the cued files and added them several times. After about an hour of processing the program just stalls. What might the problem be?

  • Hi Denise-

    When encoding takes place, the time to completion is shown. You're probably not waiting long enough. If you open Task Manger, Recode is probably shown as running even though you don't see any other evidence of it. The graphics and cpu are probably crunching numbers like crazy. Depending on the format of the original file and it's size and the specified output format, it can take a while. Your system setup also has something to do with it.

    If you're getting some kind of message to indicate there's a problem, please provide it.

  • Hi Wither,

    Thank you for your reply. I know that some disks take quite a while. I've waited up to 6 hours for one to complete. But it shows the "time left" timer which slowly but steadily counts down to 0.
    Well when it freezes, the time counter is stuck at the same countdown and after several attempts it still gets to certain percentage done and stops. I've left it running for varying amounts of time. Sometimes an hour to see if the counter changes - sometimes overnight. I still get the same problem - it's just frozen partway through the encoding process.
    In the picture I've attached the program has been just like that for the past 5 hours - no movement of the timer or the progress bar.

  • It looks to me that you're trying to recode commercial video that is copy protected.

    Outside of that, Happy New Year!

  • Yes. I make 1 personal digital copy of the DVDs that I buy then put the boxes in my library and look at the digital copy. It saves my DVDs from being scratched and also allows me to watch the dvd on any tv in the house without fumbling with a disc. Services like VUDU Disc to Digital will do it for you if you take your DVDs to Walmart but why pay someone when I can do it myself?

    Now that I've explained my use of the software can we deal with the technical issues I am having? Again it does not matter what kind of disc I am converting the software gets stuck and freezes. This is for bluray, regular dvd, home movieson dvd - any an all DVDs freeze during the encoding process. I'd like help for the technical issue i am having with the software i purchased...

  • I mentioned the copy protection because neither Nero or it's major competitors will allow you to copy such material because they don't want to set themselves up for law suits due to international law.

    Encoding takes up a huge amount of resources and creates a tremendous amount of temporary files. As a result, I recommend running the Windows Disk Cleanup utility (unless you have a SSD) and setting Windows to defrag your hard drive on a scheduled basis (unless you have a SSD). Setting the minimum and maximum virtual memory from 1.5 to 3 times RAM may also help.

    Does this happen if you try to recode a small project which is like around 30 minutes long?

  • I’m FRUSTRATED!!!
    I've tried everything that was suggested and Nero Recode still stalls when encoding a file. I perform disk cleanup once a week and defrag the drive once per month - but I did both yesterday to see if it had an effect on Nero - it did not. I allocated also twice the virtual memory and tried using a home movie that is 20 minutes long (instead of a movie that's 90 minutes). Nothing I tried made Nero Recode behave any differently and it still encodes a part of the file then freezes...

  • Go here-

    C:\Users\"user name"\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 2014\Nero Recode\Xml\Logs

    Open the "RecodeLastSession"

    The description of the last job should be near the bottom of the page. Copy and paste it here.

  • I can't find that document. I searched the path you specified and did a search of my drive. I have attached pictures of the path you recommended (and you can see I don't have an AppData or Roaming folder. In the last 3 pictures I did screen shots of the folder that was similar to the path you recommended so you can see what I found in there. Again, no Xml folder and no Logs file

  • With your Denise folder open, click on Organize. Select Folder and Search Options. In the View tab, under Files and folders, Hidden Files and Folders, check the option to show Hidden Files and Folders. You should be able to see the App Data folder and browse to find the file I mentioned.

  • The first video was recoded successfully. Is the file located where you specified?

    However, the second title just started and I don't know how long you waited for it to do anything.

    by the way, I'm presuming that, when a person recodes two different videos at one time, the files are saved separately. Perhaps that's not the case. I don't have time to test it right now.

  • I have the same issue with Platinum 2014. Recode freezes when encoding. I've tried unprotected DVDs, video camera files (m2ts), .mp4 files. Doesn't matter. Always freezes. Nero 12 works fine however.

  • Wither 1 - are you a Nero AG employee? I've been trying to get this issue with Nero Recode stalling resolved for a week - and after a dozen posts containing mostly questions about WHAT I'm converting I still don't have one single clue or suggestion on how to fix the problem... So far I've spent $80 and countless hours on software that doesn't work!

    If you are a Nero AG employee, I'd like the technical support I've been trying to get.

    If you are not a Nero AG employee, do you know how I can contact one to get support?

  • Yes the file is located where i specified. Since i was testing I intentionally set Nero to save each processed file in a separate folder. I waited 4 hours after the program stalled and it was still stalled.

  • As I understand it, you have one recoded file. Is that correct? I presume that's the motorcycle video.

    How large is the second file? If you open Task Manager, is Recode still shown as running? Is it possible that Reggie protected his seminar video?

  • No it's not protected. I recorded the seminar on my Canon EOS7D. Lime I told you previously - and like Jerry stated in his identical issue - I get the same results with files if different sizes. Sometimes large files freeze, sometimes very small files freeze. Every once in a while a segment completes encoding. This happens with unprotected material - so let's only deal with that issue - again I stayed all of this. Nothing has charged.
    • Oh, and yes Nero Recode still shows that it's running in task manager until I quit the program. To reclarify that statement, I wait for differing amounts of time when it freezes. Sometimes I wait an hour or two, sometimes I wait overnight (up to 12 hiurs) but no matter how long I wait wherever the encoding froze is where it stays frozen. I even tried once last weekend and had to leave on an overnight trip. It froze before I left and stayed that way until I got back 2 days later and quit the program to try again.

  • Tech Support answered my email and fixed the problem. Uncheck Hardware Acceleration on the Import screen. It is a checkbox on the left hand side of the screen in Section 2. It does not freeze anymore.

  • Wither 1,

    The check box is under Global Output Settings section of Recode DVD. There are 3 sections there and it is located under the 2nd section.

    For me, I was recoding numerous video files without much issue for the past week. Now, suddenly, I am getting the exact same issue as Denise but I do not have the Hardware Acceleration check box enabled.

    I get hours into a project and it freezes with a small amount left to recode. Task Manager shows process running but not consuming very much CPU/RAM at all.

    I am recoding my MP4s/AVIs into MKV for my home media UPnP server. My BRD player that has UPnP playback cannot play all my DVD formats so I found one it works with every time and am changing my library to that format.

    Only thing I can think of is that I had changed my project settings to DVD quality rather than the default 512MB. I had been getting numerous files from a single file before rather than a single result file. I wanted to have single files so I increased the quality.

  • Thanks. I must have been sleeping.

    If it's running, then it's not freezing. I have no idea what it's doing at that point.

    However, your results beg the question as to what happens if you go back to the 512 MB setting.

    Also, what are you selecting for where to store it?

  • But the CPU is at 0% that would indicate that it is not doing anything.

    I am storing on the same drive and folder path where the older AVI/MPEG2 versions are that I am converting to MKV.

    I am now trying the 512MB size to see what happens again.

  • So I ran it again using the 512MB and left it for overnight. I am aware that encoding could take long but I have never had any encode take this long, not even at these original settings.

    It has again stalled at the finish line. It had maybe 7 minutes left to encode and it just freezes. Again 0% CPU and the 158.8 default RAM consumed. No disk activity either.

    Dumbfounding. It used to work and now just does not.

  • Problem is it is a DVD from a home collection which I put into digital format as a backup. I want to be able to stream that backup to my TV so my youngest kids can change movies without handling the discs and ruining them. I need them in MKV as that is the format my networked BRD seems to best handle.

    Recoding all my backups is much faster than again backing up every disc one by one.

    Putting it up for others would be violating the laws in numerous countries. Sort of a rock and a hard place to be troubleshooting the problem, eh?

  • I'd like you to try something-

    Import your file into Recode. Under Edit Video, select More Options. Under the Audio tab, select More Settings. Select AC3 pass through. Then try to recode the file.

  • I was having the same problem with Recode 2015 stalling when converting my video files to MKV format. I seem to have fixed it by setting the CPU priority to high in the performance options and making sure All Processors is checked.
