    OpenShot not responding

    Hi all,

    Ubuntu 22.04

    OpenShot not working

    Version:3.1.1
    libopenshot: 0.3.2

    Warning:
    OpenShot not responding
    Wait or Close

    Wait - no response. The warning popup repeatedly. Then I have to close OpenShot.

    Please advise how to fix the problem?

    Thanks

    Re: OpenShot not responding

    Try starting it from terminal with command openshot-qt and show us any error messages you see.
    How did you install it?
    Is it an appimage or a snap (if there is one), or was it installed from the repos?

    It is very strange here. It seems out of my control. Now I make another testing here.

    It just happens today. OpenShot can be started

    I have 2 PCs here:-

    PC1 - 2 drives running Ubuntu 22.04. OpenShot can be started on both drives. Video (mp4) can be imported and added to track. Starting video works but the progressing pointer won't move, just standing at the start of the track permanently.

    PC2 - running Ubuntu 22.04. OpenShot has the same problem as PC1

    I don't know WHY? According to my recollection OpenShot was install on repo download on OpenShot website.

    Hi ajgreeny,

    Previously I ran Google Chrome to browse Ubuntuforums.org. It was very difficult to control the connection, clicking "Post Quick Reply" or "Reply" without response, just hanging there.

    Now I make another test running Firefox to browse Ubuntuforums.org. It seems without such problems.

    Hi all,

    It seems quite strange to me.

    Tried again:-
    1) Removed OpenShot running
    $ sudo apt-get purge openshot-qt


    2) Ran flatpak to install OpenShot

    $ sudo apt install flatpak
    $ sudo flatpak install org.openshot.OpenShot
    $ sudo -i flatpak run org.openshot.OpenShot

    OpenShot started but problem remains.

    I think OpenShot
    Version: 3.1.1
    libopenshot: 0.3.2

    may have problem. Now I have to looking for its alternative, maybe Shotcut.

    I have been running OpenShot for prolonged time

    Regards

    Hi@ajgreeny,

    OpenShot V3.1.1 has problem running on Ubuntu 24.04 and 22.04

    Performed following test:-

    On my PC1 I have a drive running Windows 10.

    Download OpenShot-V3-1-1-x86-64,exe
    and
    install it

    Start OpenShot and import video(mp4). OpenShot (Windows version) works without problem. The slider moves on running the video.

    Regards

    Hi all,

    OpenShot Video Editor works on Linuxmint

    Just performed following test

    Start Linuxmint VM

    $ lsb_release -a
    Code:
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:	Linuxmint
    Description:	Linux Mint 21.2
    Release:	21.2
    Codename:	victoria
    Install OpenShot Video Editor on PPA
    On Terminal ran;
    Code:
    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openshot.developers/ppa
    $ sudo apt update
    $ sudo apt install openshot-qt python3-openshot
    Start OpenShot Video Editor
    Code:
    $ openshot-qt
    Import video (.mp4) and add it to Track

    Video works on OpenShot Video Editor without problem.

    It is very strange to me. WHY OpenShot Video Editor can't work on Ubuntu 22.04/24.04 ?

    About one/two weeks before OpenShot Video Editor worked on Ubuntu 22.04 without problem.

    What I have done on Ubuntu 22.04 was running only
    Code:
    $ sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade
    It is very strange to me ???

    Re: OpenShot not responding

    Hi all,

    Finally I figure out the problem. Only OpenShot Appimage, the daily built version, works on Ubuntu 22.O4/24.04

    Download V3.2.0
    https://www.openshot.org/download/#daily

    Steps performed:
    right click on the AppImage
    -> choose Properties
    -> mark the file as Executable.

    Right-click the AppImage -> Run (to start OpenShot)
    Import video (.mp4)
    add video to track

    Now I can play and edit video without problem.

    I have been running OpenShot for prolonged time, on Ubuntu in the past, without problem. Its alternative is ShotCut. I'm not well experienced on ShotCut. I have to start from the beginning.

    Regards
