pod: Finally, a Fix for Apple Compressor waits forever

OK, I’ve been loving the OBS Studio to Final Cut Pro to Compressor to YouTube and Spotify Podcaster workflow. It’s a little janky, but like family, it works 🙂

One annoying problem is that the Apple Compressor will occasionally just stop working. The jobs are stuck. From seven years ago, the fix seems pretty simple: You have to reset the entire queue. By the way, Compressor feels like it 10x faster than using the QuickTime compressor that is the default when using Final Cut Pro, so you really want to use it:

  1. Start Compressor
  2. Got to Setting/Advanced/Reset Queue

And this seems to fix it, happy videoing!
