    Yes - an Access Violation 0xC0000005 crash

    An issue has been fixed in ffmpeg that gives rise to crashes of the transcoder and scanner due to memory corruption - currently the fix is in the beta released to Plex Pass (1.8.0.4109)

    Wait for the next public release of Plex Media Server which may not be too far off

    If the problem persists would need new logs and a sample file resulting in the transcoder failure
