Some shows Convert Some aren't even recognized

so I have MCEBuddy setup to run on PlayOn recordings. It has been working fairly well until recently. Yesterday PlayOn recorded 2 shows, one converted with MCEBuddy like it should the other cannot even be added manually, this happened on Sunday and Monday as well. One was a Netflix show and one was a CBS show and I cannot figure out what is going on. Log is attached TYIAmcebuddy.log (307.1 KB)

What is the name of the file that’s isn’t being picked up?

Madam Secretary and Jessica Jones

oh and black lightning

You can search through your log for these file names you’ll see why
MCEBuddy can’t process them:

  1. Your file is locked by another process so MCEBuddy can’t access it:

2018-03-21T15:36:57 MCEBuddy.Engine.QueueManager --> Monitor task
Windows Default : Unable to queue file for conversion - file
inaccessible/locked by another process D:\PlayLater\Marvel’s Jessica
Jones\Season 2\Marvel’s Jessica Jones - s02e01 AKA Start at the

  1. You file’s metadata doesn’t match the filter you’ve configured in your
    conversion task so it’ skipping the files:

2018-03-21T09:03:57 MCEBuddy.Engine.QueueManager --> Network >The CW<,
checking for network/channel filter >Hulu<

2018-03-21T09:03:57 MCEBuddy.Engine.QueueManager --> File Black
Lightning - s01e09 - The Book of Little Black Lies (Ep.109).mp4 did not
match Network/Channel meta data pattern

thank you, that’s it, I forgot I was messing around with filters and forgot to clear that back out. By the way really love your work on both MCEBuddy and for SmartThings!
