Freeze when importing avi videos (which formerly worked) (LR Classic 8.2.1 Release)

Lightroom Classic 8.2.1 Release won't import .avi files that used to import fine. There are other video files from the same camera with the same settings in the library, but new videos will not import. The import status is frozen at "Import files at the current location" with 0% progress. I can't cancel the import. Eventually, I get a "Connecting to Dynamic Link server failed". I've tried this upon fresh reboot, and it's repeatable.

An unknown error has occurred while reading the video file. Connecting to Dynamic Link server failed. (6)
    D:\localdata\_new\20190521 Trailcam\03160002.AVI
    D:\localdata\_new\20190521 Trailcam\03160003.AVI
    D:\localdata\_new\20190521 Trailcam\03170005.AVI
    D:\localdata\_new\20190521 Trailcam\03180006.AVI
    D:\localdata\_new\20190521 Trailcam\03180007.AVI
    D:\localdata\_new\20190521 Trailcam\03190011.AVI
The video files are .avi containers with AVC (Main@L4) (CABAC / 2 Ref Frames) video stream and AAC LC (64 kb/s, 44.1kHz, 1 channel) audio stream, 1920x1080 30fps ~10Mbps, from a trailcam.

I'm trying to upload screenshots here, but am getting a website Internal Server Error when I do so, so I've put the screenshots here:
