Roku Server Plugin leaves behind ffmpeg instances when creating BIFs

So I installed the Roku Server Plugin a while back, it's been running long enough to create BIF files for my entire library. However, whenever the scheduled task runs, after it terminates it leaves behind zombie ffmpeg processes that as far as I can tell will run forever consuming cpu time. This has been a consistent and repeatable issue.

 

As I said, the entire library already has BIF files generated (or at least the scheduled task progress bar disappears after a few minutes).

I can't reproduce this, although I wouldn't be surprised if there are some videos in your library that it's just having trouble processing and hangs. We see it every once in a while. If you can narrow it down and provide an example video for testing, i"ll take a look. thanks.

My experience has been that those zombie ffmpeg processes goes away after about 10 minutes.

 

That said, out of about 2,800 full BRD rips, I have 4 titles that the Roku Plugin is unable to create BIF files for, they are:
