[pitivi] xptv formatter does not load project settings and metadata
Last modified: 2015-09-23 17:07:31 UTC
Pitivi GES is unable to load the following from an existing .xptv file created by pitivi 0.15:
- multimedia settings: resolution, framerate, etc.
- project metadata: title, author, date, etc.
It looks like it's not just a question of handling that in the pitivi code, ges-pitivi-formatter.c does not seem to take those into account.
I may have an opportunity to look at this. Can you outline the solution you think is most appropriate?
For example, I can imagine one possible solution would be:
Make the latest Master read and write .xptv in the format defined in 0.15.
This is already the case actually. multimedia settings and metadata are not implemented in the GESPitiviFormatter though, so that will need to be done to get full back-compatibility.

pitiviformatter: Handle project metadatas
Nope, still not seeing this working. Take a xptv created by 0.15 for example, you may have the following settings near the top of the file so that the resolution is 1280x720:
<export-settings aencoder="vorbisenc" audiochannels="2" audiodepth="16" audiorate="44100" muxer="oggmux" vencoder="theoraenc" videoheight="720" videopar-denom="1" videopar-num="1" videorate-denom="1001" videorate-num="24000" videowidth="1280" />
But loading that project loads it as 720x576. Haven't seen anything change on that front.
Pitivi formatter is not supported, really sorry about that.
