Comment 1 for bug 137352

This is probably fixed in svn - we issue a 10 second alarm call which should crash tracker-extract if its taking too long (this might not work if tracker-extract is sleeping as sleep interferes with alarm calls)

But to be sure can you identify the video file thats causing the problem?

you can do this by running trackerd -v 2

this will print out the files as it indexes them so hopefully you can see which one it gets stuck on

once identified can you run totem-video-indexer uri and see if that hangs.
