Widcoder stalls on wtv conversion


Tested on beta versions 13 - 16.
Vidcoder stalls when converting wtv files created by Windows Media Center TV record on Win8 x64. Vidcoder will start converting to mp4 or mkv, but at differing points in the conversion will stop converting. VidCoderWorker continues to run and use 100% of CPU core. Need to kill the processes to halt the application. Handbrake .98 is able to convert all files.

Did you try on the HandBrake nightly builds? That's what the VidCoder betas most closely resemble.

Also a log might help.

I retested using HB SVN 5357 and see this version of HB stalls at the same location in the file. Comparing debugs from both Vidcoder and HB they look funcitonally identical, so I guess the problem is introduced somewhere in HB since the release of 0.9.8. Don't see anything interesting in the log, but FWIW it is posted here: Pastebin log

The HandBrake people don't check this forum. You should report the problem (with log) to them.
