Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 969874
The entire computer freezes when import and preview video
Last modified: 2013-06-03 14:39:05 EDT
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
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.
The entire computer dies, and nothing work.
The video can be imported, playback, edited.
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.
No worries, if you can reproduce it without the proprietary driver, please reopen.
