Encoder Error - Request failed with HTTP Status 404: Not Found

I am getting the following in the encoder log when trying to encode a movie. Anyone seen this?

[12/17/2008 1:51:04 PM] Progress[webServiceTimer_Tick]: Checking for a new queued item
[12/17/2008 1:51:04 PM] Error[GetNextQueueItem]: The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.

Just giving this thread a bump. I went back through the entire setup guide and performed all of the steps again to confirm. I am still getting the above message, once every minute when the timer event fires. Does anyone know what is actually happening in the steps above? My first guess is that it cannot read Queue Items from the list in Sharepoint. But I have no idea why or if that is even the problem.

I've got the same problem.

I had the same problem and it was because I deleted a required web page, so i went to the recycle bin and restore it and that was all!
hope this helps,

Can you post your entire media encoder log output?  Are you installing to the root site collection?
