Handbrake Sitting at 100%... not 'muxing' or whatever else it does when it finishes.

    I've been converting the Godfather and for the past hour or so (maybe more, I was away from my computer) it's just been sitting at 100% it shows the FPS and the AVG FPS as well as the ETA... 28.21, 33.19, and 00h00m00s respectively. I don't want to double click and open the file or cancel the conversion just incase it isn't actually finished but I'm not sure what to do.
    I have never had this problem and I'm sure that it is rare/something went wrong.
    Has anyone else encountered this? Any solutions?

    Handbrake hangups

    I have noticed that if there is any defect in the DVD Handbrake will stall where the problem is, I found this out because I tried to rip a DVD to my iPhone and worked on 3 different settings trying to get it to finish, and only after viewing the disk on my DVD player did I see that at the place the encode was stalling at had a flaw that the DVD player skipped through.

    Handbrake is trying to encode the error, and hangs because of it.

    I clicked on stop encoding and it went into the muxing stage. I guess this works because it was at 100%, I imagine if it was hung up at another percentage then it wouldn't be the whole movie.
    Regardless, it worked. Thanks for the reply
