pitivi render is paused forever
Last modified: 2013-07-31 22:42:05 EDT
Description of problem:
When I open even trivial project in pitivi (1 video file to convert) the render process hangs forever in the estimation phase. As soon as I push render button and choose the output video paramers and proceed to render, there is popup message about estimating the time, and it hangs there forever.
I can play whole video in the preview, but I can't render it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open new project
2. add 1 video to the project (
Time estimation process hangs forever and video doesn't render.
Video should start rendering.
On console there is this error message repeated several times:

Estimation hangs if you use even 1 JPG picture as video source and probably anything as output video codec (I was trying Webm, ogg, and several ffmpeg codecs.
I have tried to download pristine 0.15.2. from the upstream and that one renders just fine.
I was using just ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && bin/pitivi
Same applies for the version from git repository.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
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 prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 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 to Fedora 17's end of life.
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 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
