Handbrake not working in Lion on Mac Mini

I've got a mid-2010 Mac Mini (2.4 CD2 and 4GB RAM). I just installed Lion on this yesterday and tried handbrake today but it does not move even a small amount into 'Scanning New Source'. It just seems stuck there.

I deleted the app and downloaded it again, but still the same issue. This had never happened to me in SL.

Anyone else having similar issues or know any fixes?

Thanks!

Are you using the latest release 0.9.5 ? if you are download a nightly build. They seem to be working perfectly for me on a 2009 and 2011 MacMini running Lion.

Nightly Builds are at :

https://build.handbrake.fr/view/Nightlies/

... and yes reportedly it works there but I haven't setup my lion build environment yet. there will be some changes to address lion I suspect. Also its worth noting that the nightlies are much more capable than 0.9.5. Just my .02.

I am using the current version but not a nightly build. I'll check that one out.

Thanks!

Handbrake is working beautifully for me on my early 2011 MBP with Lion installed.

I was able to get the regular build to scan the dvd. I had to let it sit for like 10 minutes before it started the scan. It took a LONG time to scan it and then would NOT start encoding.

I downloaded the latest nightly build. It began scanning after it sat for about a minute and took a LONG time to scan as well. I then hit encode and it sat for another few minutes before starting the encode. The encode seems to be doing fine and moving along at it's normal pace.

I've used handbrake for years and years. My usual experience is an immediate start to the scan and a quick scan for almost all dvd's. The encode starts immediately upon me hitting the button as well. So this is unusual and not something I had ever seen prior to upgrading to Lion.

Yeah. I read that and had been there before I posted here. I tried that but it didn't work.

The nightly build of handbrake did a great job ripping a dvd earlier. It was the scanning and starting the rip that gave me problems. But at least it worked after that. Better than nothing.

I also have the issue mentioned in the thread you linked....about having to force quit when nothing happens. Handbrake just won't shut down without me doing that.
