Get the latest updates for the Adobe Media Encoder:


  • If the Adobe Media Encoder does not launch, try deleting the AME preferences from C:\users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder\4.0
Something else to check is to make sure that there are no 3rd party plugins installed for AME. Check the path at C:\program Files\Common Files\Plug-ins\MediaCore to (A.) see if this path exists, and (B.) if there's anything residing there.

If the path exists at all it means that some 3rd party installer added it to put a renderer in for AME. Pull out whatever plug-ins might be in there and try launching again. RapiHD created a plug-in that was compatible with 4.0, but crashed with 4.01. This is now fixed, but there may be others out there that have the same problem.
  • If the bit rate that you have selected seems to change spontaneously, then there are 2 things you should try:
  1. Once the Premiere sequence is loaded in the AME, open up the settings again from the AME interface and reset the bit rate. This seems to be an issue with Windows Media and some Quicktime exports.
  2. If you are using CBR and the bit rate still won't stay set like you want, switch to VBR momentarily, set your bit rate there, then switch back to CBR. The desired CBR bit rate should now stay set.
