Lightroom 5.2 RC, Windows 8, Nikon D7100; Lightroom failed to Import Nikon mov videos from SD card along with some JPGs and Nikon NEF files. I copied the mov files manually into the import directory, still failed to import them. Finally, I rebooted, and then the import worked. Error reported:
An unknown error has occurred while reading the video file. Connecting to Dynamic Link server failed. (6)

Experiencing this same problem with LR 5.2 on my MacBook, while synchronizing old folders on an external HDD (from the days before LR could handle videos). Will have to try another restart (of LR, at least).
