I'm getting an error when trying to use zencoder and private files. The issue is:

Zencoder reports errors in postback for fid 723, job id 24084351: There was a problem resolving the host at http://default/system/files/videos/original/blahblah.mov. Please check that it is correct.

What aystem are you using to submit jobs to Zencoder? Are you using cron, convert on save, video_scheduler.php or drush?

I'm using video_scheduler.php either running as a cron job or manually. I think the files need to be publically accessible for zencoder to get access to them.

No, the error is related to the fact that your site is installed in sites/default. The video_scheduler script can't handle that. My recommendation is to use the drush command to run the video queue.

Try the latest 7.x-2.x-dev version for an updated version of the video scheduler script. Set the --site parameter to your sites hostname to fix your problem. Also see my last comment at #1691992: Update INSTALL.txt docs for video_scheduler.php.

I'm also getting this error when running via drush. How can I pass the --site argument to drush?

Discovered fix for drush - related to drush issue #1158144.

$drush video-scheduler --uri=http://foo.bar

or set in drushrc
