Pitivi

Hi! We've been quiet on the blogging side—not because we've forgotten or have nothing to say, but because our devs love code much more than prose, and our PR machine (+Jeff Fortin Tam) has been extremely busy with the +GNOME foundation and +idéemarque in recent months. We're hoping for some new writeups in the spring/summer, but collecting the data for a quality article always takes a lot of time.

P.s.: globally, as you can see, Thibault and Mathieu have been quite active on +GStreamer lately as part of work to improve Pitivi:

A public service announcement: the Pitivi 0.94 package in Fedora is currently broken! We only discovered this recently, because the same version works fine on Fedora when using our own build tools. If you had trouble with the version currently available in Fedora, please try the bundles from pitivi.org's download page and let us know if they work better for you. And if you're feeling like helping out with this, please investigate the cause of the Fedora bug below.
Somehow, the 0.94 package in F21 is unable to import MOV, MP4, webm, or basically anything that isn't ogg theora. You get a ton of tracebacks (below). The interesting thing is with the stable 0.94 release bundle obtained from the Pitivi website's download page, there are no such issues at all.

Hopefully +Wim Taymans can take a look and help figure out what happens here

Not everybody has access to a fast, 24/7 web server, so here's a new tool in your Pitivi testing arsenal: a public FTP account (provided by +idéemarque with unlimited bandwidth and storage space), to share whole projects or sample problematic media files: http://wiki.pitivi.org/wiki/Bug_reporting#Sharing_sample_files_for_testing

For 0.95 and beyond, we're hoping for a much more reliable backend. How many of you would be interested in participating in one or two "break my Pitivi 0.95" live testing days on IRC eventually, where we'd give you dead-easy tools to send us sample problematic projects that we can use to solve any remaining reliability issues? Would such a "testing & reporting" sprint be more engaging and approachable for you?

It took me a few days/weeks to write this one, but here's the first episode of a new série of blog posts about +Pitivi news
Hello gentle readers! You may have been wondering what has been going on since the 0.93 release and the Pitivi fundraising campaign. There are a few reasons why we've been quiet on the blogging side this summer: Mathieu and Thibault have been working hard to bring us towards “1.0 quality”, ...

Summer is over, but we're still hard at work! Summarizing the technical improvements that occurred is not trivial. We hope to post some status updates soon.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for some reading material, you can take a look at various blog posts from Pitivi/GStreamer dev community members throughout the summer, at http://pitivi.org/planet !

I'm working towards these blog post updates, if anyone is wondering. They are a bit late (like all my other Pitivi-related tasks like "retesting everything and preparing a release") as I'm alone writing, not getting much help to do the actual research, and I have very limited time/focus available for this in my everyday life.

And so it happened: a few weeks ago, we finally killed our gnonlin dependency, thanks to +Mathieu Duponchelle & +Thibault Saunier's  hard work to bring us to a new level of stability! More on that later.

Being good free & open-source citizens means that our involvement is bigger than ourselves. Sometimes, doing things right means that our work goes totally unnoticed, as we often catch bugs in +GStreamer and other components before they get released. Here's an example with a regression we found in the handling of Apple ProRes videos.
wget http://jeff.ecchi.ca/public/PRORES%20SAMPLE%20FOR%20DANNY.mov rename it as /tmp/foo.mov gst-launch-1.0 uridecodebin uri=file:///tmp/foo.mov ! videoconvert ! xvimagesink Result: pink overload. Tested with git everything. GStreamer 1.2 is unaffected. Comment 1 Mathieu Duponchelle [developer] ...

Apps. Middleware. Desktop and mobile ecosystems. OEMs. Vendors. Users. Developers. We're all in this together. Let's show Groupon they can't trample FLOSS like that.
 
Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

Please donate here:

Hey folks! In case you missed this little piece of news, a new release is out now.
Dear werepenguins, we're thrilled to announce the immediate availability of Pitivi 0.94! This is the fourth release for the new version of our video editor based on GES, the GStreamer Editing Services library. Take a look at my previous blog post to understand in what context 0.94 has been ...

well as far as I can tell, you can do all those basic color correction operations with the existing filters (27+) visible in Pitivi. For a nicer user experience, we need custom user interfaces for some of them though, which would be https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=596131

A quick note: Tomas Karger wrote today about his efforts to update the user manual during the past few months (and he did a great job!)
I feel like the basic (re)writing of Pitivi user docs is done so I thought I should take a while to describe the current state of the docs and point to further tasks that need to be done. When I st...
