Error: the job XML is empty!

What is your operating system?
Debian sid aarch64

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)?

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?

If you try to encode after installing the Shotcut 24.04.30 version distributed in the Debian sid (ARM64) repo,

It fails with the above error.

The same symptom occurs in both shotcut_22.12.21+ds-2 distributed in the Debian 12 repo and shotcut_24.02.29+ds-1build1 distributed in the Ubuntu 24.04 LTS repo.

This issue is occurring in an ARM64 environment. What is the solution?

Sorry, but the main project developers do not make those builds or debug them. I cannot think of a cause at the moment. Can you please try the Flatpak?

It seems that the symptom only occurs in ARM64 Linux environments.

The packages distributed with Pacman on Arch Linux are the same.
Is there any way to solve this? :frowning:

You can try to use the command line to export:
