Cannot get video sitemap to complete. Have double checked to make sure it's writable but the thing just won't complete.

I believe your video sitemap is full that is why it's no longer completing i.e., it hangs at the end of the process/status bar. I experienced the same issue some weeks back in version 1.9, and I had to split my video sitemap into two - with continuous support from Andrew of course.
P.S. Do not submit your video sitemap in Webmaster Tool while this issue persist. If you do, Webmaster Tool will return a parsing error and your video links will be dropped from Google's index. This was from my bitter experience.

I just upgraded my site to 2.0, imported few videos (some scheduled for later), tried to generate video sitemap 2, and I can confirm it does not complete hereby resulting to a parsing error.

A good guess is, it's time to use the additional video sitemaps. But I still don't understand why a video sitemap of roughly 800kb (in my case), is already full or hanging.

P.S. I'm not sure if this thread is right for this, just following up with Webbie.

Edit: Something about the video sitemap again. I just noticed apart from the additional xml files, the structure of the xml 1 and xml 2 have changed in 2.0.

In 1.9, my xml 2 have always carried my most recent entries, while xml 1 is where my older entries starting from inception are located. However, now with 2.0 my newer entries are filed under xml 1 and older entries filed under xml 2 (which is currently not completing). Won't this cause Google to de-index my site again?

Wow...it worked. Thanks Trace!

But why wasn't this fix (since March 2012) added to PHP Melody new releases?

I was able to generate video sitemap again under one xml file, instead of splitting only kilobytes of videos into multiple xml files.

And it seems Google temporary de-index my videos because only about half are currently showing as indexed after resubmitting my videos under one xml file. I know this could be due to me having multiple video sitemaps initially in Webmaster Tool. Well, I'd see if the number of indexed videos increases in the next 24 hours.
