This error occurs when the task hangs at the encoding stage, and its execution time tops the estimated time by (n) seconds (the value can vary).

Error while opening codec for output stream

This maybe attributed to incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height . The specified parameters such as bitrate, audio sampling rate or audio channels number are not allowed for the specified codec. Also, often this error appears when specified bitrate is too low.

Incorrect audio parameters

Some audio codecs (e.g. AAC or MPEG-Layer-3) have their own limitation for options values. When you leave these options blank in your API request, encoding.com will get them from the source file, and not always their set will be correct for particular codec. So, it's better to always set audio codec parameters explicitly.
