Handbrake dumps its stack on me when I try to resize a video file. The original file size is 2.7GB and the Target Size is 700MB. No other settings of the video are being changed (left at default). Pass 1 of the encoding goes through, but HandbrakeCLI dumps on Pass 2.

I am using Handbrake 0.9.3. I get this error no matter what target file format (AVI, MKV, etc.) I choose. Is there anything I can do to get around this error and successfully resize the video file?

The contents of HandBrakeCLI.exe.stackdump:

Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION at eip=0091896B

Maybe you should send them a bug report, it looks like Handbrake is using trac so try to submit it there.
