So this problem remained through the 2.4.9 beta builds and continues with .10 as well.
The ‘work around’ I found was to change the conversion task to .TS Unprocessed.
That was fine, but 2.4.9 builds using MKV Unprocessed for the final output to my TV Collection folder(s) containing HEVC/.265 video would not seek, scan or resume playback in Plex and weren’t able to OPEN using VLC (on Windows) – Microsoft Movies & TV player would play, but also shared playback the issues with Plex - no seeking, ff, etc.
So I ‘upgraded’ to the latest .10 beta and A’s still can not read/convert MKV created with MCEBuddy, it can work with the same files in TS format (MCEBuddy MKV (any version) re-muxed with MKVToolNix are ok).
The mkv files created by MCEBuddy play, scan, resume perfectly in Plex and play in VLC too!
However, the .10 version of Plex WILL NOT correctly match my TV files to TheTVdb, IMDB, etc. For files with “title sXXeXX episode title” they will be placed into the correct folder, but files such as “title sXXeXX” NEVER are looked up and updated with episode title or placed in the proper folder. Instead they placed in their own separate folders.
title sXXeX1\Season 0\s00e00 -.mkv
title sXXeX2\Season 0\s00e00 -.mkv
title sXXeX3\Season 0\s00e00 -.mkv
It’s more than a little maddening and makes it impossible to reprocess all my HEVC seasons already stored by MCEBuddy.
Is there a change I can make to MCEBuddy 2.4.9 to have it generate playable x265 MKV videos?
I am getting tired of new issues with each update and would be happy to STOP the cycle and, once again, have a reliable system to organize my files.
Before upgrading from “MCEBuddy 2.4.9 64bit - 20180920” (later versions had the same or similar issues) I did backup the Program Files folder, so I do have access to the old log files and new log files.
