Hi all,

When i try to start Media Encoder Service, I am receving the fallowing errior message. even i uninstalled and reinstalled the service still getting same prob. Pls suggest me on this.

The Media Encoder service on Local Computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service.

Have you checked the media encoder log in C:\Program Files\PKS\Media Encoder Service\encoder.log. Usually there is more information to track down the error.

(I had fx that error when I had misstyped the path Mediaencoder.MonitorWeb in the list PKS Configuration Settings.)

You should make sure the account you are using to run the Media Encoder Service has write access to the directory that its located in (where the exe is), as it can fails when it tries to write the LOG file if the user is not an administator on the box.
