Description Bo Lan 2013-06-02 20:37:47 UTC
Description of problem:
When I import a video into the pitivi, the entire computer freezes, not only the x server or anything. Event the CAPS LOCK or NUM light does not work. The CTLR+ALT+F2 does not work. Sometime, I can drag a video into the media library, but when I add it to the time line, the entire computer also freezes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : pitivi
Arch        : noarch
Version     : 0.15.2
Release     : 3.fc19

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open pitivi
2. add a new project
3. click the "import file" button
3. drag a video into the "media library", and preview it.

Actual results:
The entire computer dies, and nothing work.

Expected results:
The video can be imported, playback, edited.

Additional info:

There is an additional information. Almost every video non-linear editor, such as kdenlive and openshot, cannot work well in Fedora 19. It seems like a problem of the GNOME or GTK video preview function. I mention pitivi here specifically, because it is the only well-know non-linear editor in fedora repo. If you can reproduce the problem and be sure it is a problem of GNOME and GTK, please reassign it for me.

Does it matter what type of video you're importing?

My apology, I finally found that it is relevant to what type of graphic card driver I use. It works well after changing to Gallium 0.4 on AMD ARUBA. It probably is a bug of proprietary driver.

Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-06-03 18:39:05 UTC
No worries, if you can reproduce it without the proprietary driver, please reopen.
