Comment 15 Cole Robinson 2016-07-20 13:00:05 UTC
One of the dupes mentions that reinstalling ffmpeg fixed the crash, another mentioned removing gstreamer1-libav

Comment 16 Oliver Gutiérrez 2016-07-20 13:53:49 UTC
The removal of gstreamer1-libav fixed the problem in my case.

As soon as I reinstall it, the problem comes again, but my gstreamer1-libav library comes from rpmfusion:

gstreamer1-libav              x86_64              1:1.8.2-1.fc24                fedora-HandBrake              229 k

Maybe thats the real reason.

Comment 17 Oliver Gutiérrez 2016-07-20 13:56:24 UTC
Installing ffmpeg or gstreamer-ffmpeg in my F24 does not have any effect. Only gstreamer1-libav reproduces the problem.

Comment 18 Kamil Páral 2016-07-20 14:07:03 UTC
Olivier, according to the repo name of your gstreamer1-libav package, it does not come from rpmfusion, but from negativo17's repositories. That's exactly the same repo I used when seeing this crash.

However, I uninstalled all the ffmpeg/gstreamer packages and then installed them again (and rebooted a few times in the meantine), and virt-manager no longer crashes for me. I have the same gstreamer1-libav version as you do, from same repo. I don't know how to explain that.

Comment 19 Oliver Gutiérrez 2016-07-20 15:06:28 UTC
I'm not able to avoid the crashes if lib installed.

Will try that later and if I got any new info I report it here.

Thanks for helping

Comment 20 Fedora End Of Life 2017-07-25 21:50:17 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '24'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 21 Fedora End Of Life 2017-08-08 15:38:40 UTC
Fedora 24 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-08-08. Fedora 24 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
