When importing photos and videos to Lightroom from disk (copy, add) from a particular directory, the import of the .mov files would fail with a message indicating that the connection was lost with the dynamicmediaserver.exe process.  Once the dynamicmediaserver.exe process hung, I had to kill the process to get Lightroom import working properly again.  However, every time I tried to import .mov files from the particular directory, it would hang again.  The problem appeared to be a very small .mov file with only a single video frame.  When I removed this file the dymanicmediaserver.exe process would not hang, and the import proceeded normally.

Hi Scott, Could you please share the video (.mov) file that is causing the issue for you? A download link or a public share will suffice.

Thanks.

Yes, Scott. Thanks very much!

I was able to reproduce the problem with the video file you sent. I have reported it to the development team and it will be taken up for fixing in a future update.
