Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1282147
Pitivi isn't close to stable enough to be included in fedora
Last modified: 2015-11-22 09:42:13 EST
Description of problem:
I can't get PiTiVi to run for more than about 1 minute (unless I open it and do nothing).
Importing clips crashes it some times
Trying to move tracks in the time line (which seems impossible, because there's no selection arrow crashes it sometimes.
Just opening it crashes it.
Video editing on Linux is hard enough without including packages that barely start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Use if for about 1 minute.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open pitivi
2. Try to do something.
Crashes very quickly
Some sort of stability would be appropriate before packages are included in fedora.
Crashes and such are to be reported upstream. Downstream, nobody hears your screams.
The Pitivi folks have been working for an entire year to stabilize the thing amidst all the breakage caused by $insert_dependencies_here (gst, clutter, gtk, wayland, you name it).
0.95 (bug #1283968) should be much better.
I should also mention that what ended up packaged downstream somehow behaved differently than upstream (bug #1178168).
