Can't encode with many comp's using VDMod

Hi everyone. I tried to use an multicomputer encoding feature in VdubMod 1.4.13. I have small network of 3 computers. I open a Job Control in all 3. Than i put a Main as Master, other two as Slaves, They see each ohter(main has 2 slaves appeared). But when i try to start a job - just notheing happends. No error, no message, just it is written "in progress" and 0% all the time till i abort it. When i try to launch the same job on the main pc alone - all is O.K. - the job is bein processed. Can anyone explain how can i get this work or what am i doing wrong. Thanks in Advance.

Thanks for replying! I wanted to start some encoding to, than try it on many pc's and after that to post the virtualdubmod.jobs file.
But this time i had some (partial) success. I don't know why, maybe cos when i tryed it before(many times) i used mpegs as sources and applied some filters and a/v compression. Now i just wanted to reencode some xvid in 2-pass mode without any filters. So here are all steps i did: --
--
1 Open VDMod on computer X, put there some file i want to process
2 make all audio/video processing settings i need
3 open the "save avi as" dialog and check add to job list box
4 open the job window on X,
5 opne the job window on computers Y and Z, and set them as Slave
6 on th X, click Update, and then Master, after that i have the following window: ( at the bottom)
NAME-------------STATE------------------RANGE
-X---------------Localhost(master)-------------
-Y---------------Slave----------------------------
-Z---------------Slave----------------------------
After that all i press Start button and the whole situation is changed:
-
NAME-------------STATE------------------RANGE-------%-------FPS----
-X---------------Localhost(master)------0-6554-----62--------19----
-Y---------------Slave---------------------------------------------
-Z---------------Slave---------------------------------------------
Finally i got some Silya script error and process stopped. But the strange thing is not this: as you can see, only computer X did all the job, the other did notheing?!?!? Maybe i should configure them somehow? i read Help file (with VDMod) but there isn't too much. to be sure i checked a cpu utilization on Y and Z and it was 0% The Virtualdubmod.jobs file is here:
// VirtualDub job list (Sylia script format)

Have a look at the help file.
1.) Using mpeg is supposed to be a bad idea (written by the original author, because of the scanning process needed on opening)
2.) 2-pass encoding WILL NOT WORK!. This is because the stats file would need to be split, too (which is currently not implemented and will need a codec specific code).

VirtualDub.Open("L:\\Mad TV - Arnold's Recording Session.avi",0,0);
Is this location valid from all involved pcs?

Ok, Thanks for info, the location is not valid for all 3 pc's only for master, but i think using a full UNC path will solve this problem.
Just another question, if you don't mind:
Whan kind of encoding features does this method supports? Filters? what video codecs? what audio codecs? Thanks for your help

I am not sure, but i guess you will have to map network drives such that all PCs can use the same drive letter ...

How can you encode using LAN? Is this a plug-in? Where can I get it?
Thanx!


OK, I now figured out the new feature of VDubMod
