Conversion pauses on error

Bug Description

Trying to convert a very large music library (a portion at a time). Occasionally an error occurs - believe most of what I have seen is unable to write to destination. When this happens, Soundconverter waits and does not process any conversions until the error message is cleared. Problem with this is that with such a large set of files (about 2000 at a time), I walk away to let the conversion run, only to return later and find out very little was done in the meantime.

Would be desirable if when an error occurs for soundconverter to continue to process other tracks (move on to the next). Perhaps this could be an option block in the preferences.

Changed in soundconverter:
milestone: none → 3.0
assignee: nobody → GautierPortet (kassoulet)
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium
summary: - COnversion pauses on error

This affects me in a slightly different way. My library includes image files (album art), and when I drag my whole library folder onto the conversion queue those images are added. When encountered, an error is displayed, and conversion pauses. This means I have to sit in front of my machine hitting "Close" on error modals for the entire duration of the conversion.

Would be much preferable to have an error log to which errors are appended for later review, or at least an option in the error modal to ignore all similar errors.

I experience the same issue as Leo Tyndall (lfstindall).

All my FLAC folders contain a folder.jpg file which makes it a real pain to do a "batch" conversion now with Soundcoverter since you have to babysit the program to acknowledge all the errors encountered when gstreamer tries to convert a .jpg file to ogg vorbis etc.

recent changes will at least skip files that are not music (like folder.jpg):
