I am trying to export a tracker analysis to a mp4 video and the engine will not export the file where the error message at the end is java.lang.runtimeException: could not encode video.  

What do we need to do?

Additional information.

I'm not having problems exporting mp4 on my Windows machine so not able to identify what the problem might be. Have you tried exporting to a different video format? If you can do that, maybe you can then convert your exported video to mp4 using a separate video converter. There are several free converters out there plus some that do the conversion on the web.

Hope this helps!
