Most likely the problem is in the language analysis, done when a file is dropped in the application.
Same issue here :)
Fixed in v2.3
I still seem to be having the issue with 2.3 - is there a step I might be missing? It still hangs when trying to add MTS files to the queue.
Sorry for the delay, I have a sample file if you're still able to test: https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=042fc38e9f321e7c&resid=42FC38E9F321E7C!119&parid=42FC38E9F321E7C!105&authkey=!AGSEU9rPlbHLZqQ
Thanks a lot for the sample, I will have a look shortly
I have added a timeout on the scan operation, files that hang HandBrake won't freeze HBB. I have also added the option to skip the scan completely (in the Preferences).
I can confirm that the problem is now fixed. Thanks so much, you are awesome!!
