[Solved] Proxy creation failed

I have proxy creation enabled, but when I added a video taken with my drone, it failed to make it (use to worked with other versions). I tried with Manjaro package, with Shotcut Appimage downloaded yesterday and with my previous appimage.

The error is this:

The most likely reason is either wrong type (e.g. a video option with no video streams) or that it is a private option of some encoder which was not actually used for any stream.

Video is: H.264 (High Profile) - 4K

As I said, this used to work before, with the old Appimage that use a previoud ffmpeg version gave the same error.

I can’t understand from the error what part is the problem, maybe the color configuration?


Turn off Settings > Proxy > Use Hardware Encoder. It is not working on your system.
