Why can't I make an M4V?

I've been converting VOB files to M4V without incident and now, suddenly, I'm running into a problem.

I will start and then stop right at 4%. No indication that there's a problem, it just hovers there.

Is there something that I've missed that's preventing the conversion process from finishing?

How about the particular file in question? Try it with a file that has worked before. If it's the file itself, it's corruption that media players can sidestep but which media encoders can't. I know VirtualDub's (PC only) very good at that (for an encoder)--something in the way it fully decompresses and compresses the file (Full Processing). If the M4V encoding codec is installed on your computer, VirtualDub should be able to use it.

Good luck!
