My encoder does not complete an encode or batch job. It stops ahead of time.

The MediaPress encoder is very sensitive to overall computer performance and
speed.  If the computer does not relinquish enough processor time to the encoding
process, then the encoder may stop encoding or stop transcoding.

As you add more functions to the encode process, like deck control, muxing, or
preview, then cpu speed becomes even more of an issue.

Make sure you have a fast enough computer and that you have enough RAM.  We
specify that MediaPress will run on 1Gbyte, but we run a minimum of 1.5Gbytes in
every machine here.  We find that more RAM improves overall computer performance

Also make sure other cpu activity is turned off for best performance.  Turn OFF
Appletalk, Internet access, Time server, File sharing, Hard disk sleep.
