Handbrake crashes during video scan

Post by tshepp »

Please describe the problem in as much detail as possible:
Both HandBrake and HandBrakeCLI crash when opening a specific avi file during scanning the file.
The avi file was created using Virtual Dub.
The avi file was created from bmp files without compression. The avi can be played using VLC or MediaPlayer without problems as expected.

Other video files can be opened without problem, so that is not a general problem. We could say the avi has problems, but it can be played using different video players without problems just as expected.

What are the steps to reproduce this problem:
Using HandBrake I just try to open the described avi file.

What version of HandBrake you are running:

What operating system and version and you running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14):
Windows 10

Where did you download HandBrake from? handbrake.fr or somewhere else?
from handbrake.fr

If there was any error, exception or crash report displayed, please copy it and paste it here:

nothing specific, just

Please include the scan or encode log:

Can you provide a small sample AVI that reproduces the problem?
