Anki media not syncing on mac

I recently switched from windows to mac and now I am getting a media sync error. I have a fresh install on the mac and no extensions downloaded. Things work fine on anki droid and ankiweb. This is the error, does anyone know what it is?

IOError { info: “Os { code: 92, kind: Other, message: “Illegal byte sequence” }” }

Does Tools>Check Media help?
