Something went horribly awry during an export out of compressor (the job progress got stuck) , and I've decided to re-submit my batch. The problem is that I can neither pause nor cancel the current stuck job in the batch monitor. I can add as many jobs as I want to the queue, but it's been "cancelling" for about half an hour. Any help is appreciated, thanks for your time.

Force the application to quit - right-click (CTRL-click) on its dock icon

Thanks for the replies I had tried quitting and restarting (was able to do both) but everytime I opened compressor the job would just start back up again in a frozen state. Funny enough just after I posted I found a clear queue button and was able to re-submit and be on my way. Thanks again for the time though.

None of this worked for me. Even turning off the whole computer did not remove the file from the Batch folder. Here's a solution I found on the Apple support site...and it works.

1. In Finder select go, go to folder
2. Enter: var/spool/qmaster
3. This will find a folder (oddly named with numeral & text). Trash the folders you see INside this folder (mine were called Shared & Jobs
4. In compressor, select the menu item Compressor/reset Background Processing.

John.

[johatk] "2. Enter: var/spool/qmaster"


It's actually " /var/spool/qmaster " and thank you very much, I had the same problem.

I have two folders in my /var/spool/qmaster/ I guess I will delete contents in both.

Brand new mac pro 8 core with FCS and been having a ton of compressor issues.

Thanks John, I deleted the folders in /var/spool/qmaster and reset background processing but no cigar, I downloaded compressor repair and it finally got rid of them.
