how can i get the video monitor working?
i really appreciate the new video functionality in ardour, i work with videos quite often and although xjadeo is ok, this could save a lot of clicks.
however, i seem to be unable to get it actually working. when i load a video file, i can see the video timeline with frames from the video, but when i play the session, there is no video window appearing anywhere. yes, Video Monitor from the Window menu is checked. when i uncheck it and check again, ardour usually crashes - console says:
ardour-3.3: ../libs/ardour/ardour/audio_buffer.h:38: virtual void ARDOUR::AudioBuffer::silence(ARDOUR::framecnt_t, ARDOUR::framecnt_t): Assertion `_capacity > 0' failed.
this also happened once during the transcoding.
tried it with with several files and various transcoding options, in a clean session with nothing but the video in it. in some cases, ardour doesn't crash, just reports to be diconnected from jack, Log says:
[ERROR]: JACK: zombified - calling shutdown handler
although qjackctl shows jack peacefully running with low load and not a single x-run.
my setup: ardour 3.3, AMD box with fresh instal of AVlinux 6.0.1, Echo Audio fw sound with ffado drivers, ATI video with proprietary drivers.
some ideas? do i miss something?
