ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 4587
Digikam crash on previewing MP4 files
Last modified: 2014-10-30 20:52:21 MSK
Description of problem:
When trying to import JPG and MP4 from my phone into my Digikam library, the program crashes when it tries to make a thumbnail for any MP4 file.
Here is the details of the video file (from qmplay2):
Stream 1 - FFMpeg/VAApi, VAApi Writer
aspect ratio: 1.77778
Stream 1 - FFMpeg, PulseAudio Writer
sample rate: 48000Hz
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Digikam
2. Go to album where at least one MP4 file exists, or try to import images and proceed to import details (where you can select auto album creation)
3. The program builds previews for JPGs just fine but it crashes as soon as it finds the first MP4 file.
I tried to do rpmbuild --rebuild for digikams.src.rpm, but the problem persists even with these custom-built packages. However, if I compile Digikam from the source tarball (downloaded from their website), using defaults, the resulting build works without this. I mean, that in this case Digikam works with MP4 files perfectly wiithout any crashes.
Some investigation is required - I believe that the problem sits somewhere in Rosa spec for Digikam (maybe)
Should be fixed in 4.4.0.
