Shoutcut crashes after opening more than one M4V (h.264) file.
Shotcut version 19.12.31
It is a repeatable crash
I had some 4K files, I made proxys with Handbrake “Production Proxy 540p” preset modified to use h.264 QSV for encoding.
If I open more than one file at once first, after opening tose files Shotcut exits without any warning.
Originals do not cause problem, only the mentioned proxy files.
Proxy file info:
MPEG-4 AVC (part 10)
960x540, 29,7 fps
Audio AAC (mp4a)
How to repeat:
Starting Shotcut -> open files -> I select 3 files, files open, 3 files appear on Playlist, automatically starts to play the first item, then I pause it and Shotcut exits without warning.
If I do not pause, then it plays a few seconds then exits without warning.
The workaround is opening one file first, then I can add any, without crash:
Starting Shotcut -> open files -> select one file, file opens, no problem
I can seek, put it on timeline, etc. Repeat, open 3 files, I can seek, add to timeline, no problem now.
