Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1463008
Freezes when converting video

Update: gstreamer1-plugins-ugly-free 1.12.0-3.fc26
Description of problem: I've recently used Sound Converter to convert a video (mkv) file to an ogg/vorbis file without any problem (also on Fedora 26).
Now, however, this does not work anymore and it just freezes.
Playing music/videos, using ffmpeg, etc. works all fine. Only this application does not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.1.6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add some mkv files.
2. Click on "Convert"
Actual results: Freeze.
Expected results: Convert.
Fedora 26 beta, x64
Wayland, nouveau on Nvidia GPU, GNOME
(also tested on Xorg: same result, everything freezed, only cursor is still movable)
I think this could be related to an update of gstreamer1-plugins-ugly-free to v1.12.0-3.fc26 I did recently. (see attached screenshot)
soundconverter-3.0.0-1.fc28 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 28. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-1cff95f788

What part did you fail to understand?, sound isn't video!!!
Well… no idea. But in any case it should not freeze!
Then display me an error message, but not let everything freeze… for what it's worth.
Especially not the whole desktop. :D
soundconverter-3.0.0 seems to be ok with .mkv files (tested in f28)
If your whole DE freezes it more likely to be graphics driver related.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
