The log is located in your home folder:
/Users/YOURUSER/.openshot_qt/

Does OpenShot crash on launch? Or only after you drop in these particular media files? If you have a small, sample file that crashes OpenShot, please attach it as well.

Both of these files work great for me on Linux. I'll test them on Windows soon, and see if that crashes for me. Also, you might try setting your profile to 1080p 24fps, which will have better performance and match the video files. I'll update this tomorrow with some Windows testing. =)

I don't think it's related to the files you load. I have it installed on 2 machines (one Win7 and one Win10) and they crash with this error message after a (felt) random period of time unrelated to what I do...

I have the same experience as Axxandro on my W10 (x64) PC. The program crashes shortly after I do anything with the generic "launch.exe has stopped working" alert. An exception is when I tried to do a PIP by slicing a video, putting one part on a second track, changing the layout of one clip to 1/4 size, then trying to play both at the same time. That generates the C++ runtime error crash alert shown above.

I like what I'm seeing with the general program structure, but until I can actually complete some editing, I can't isolate specific bugs. Even loading in a video (h.264 or h.265) and simply saving it back out as an h.264 clip will crash with the launch.exe crash alert.

I also have a few wish list items, but this does not look like the place to mention them (at least for now).

It does ship on Windows with a VC++ runtime, but it packages up what it needs, and doesn't use the system ones (to the best of my knowledge).

I've tested the video files linked above on Windows 10, and everything works fine for me. I got no crashes on Windows 10 or Ubuntu 14.04. If I had to take a huge guess, I would say we have some kind of race condition happening, where every once in a while, something happens in an unexpected order.

In order to track this down, it would be helpful if we can nail it down to a specific thing. For example, if all you do is watch the video, over and over again. Or all you do is grab the edge of the clip, and drag it left and right. Or move the clip when the playhead is overlapping it (back and forth, dropping it each time on the timeline).

So, instead of using the app like normal, I'm suggesting using it in very 1 dimensional ways, so we can start to eliminate certain things. Good luck and thanks for helping me track these things down!

Blender is not packaged with OpenShot... just some blender templates and scripts, but they still require the user to install Blender, and then update the preferences in OpenShot to point to the Blender executable. I hope that explains it better.

Also, Blender is only invoked when rendering 3D Animated titles, so unless you are getting a crash on that screen, it's probably not related to Blender. =)

I would never have known this... maybe ought to include it in the Windows installer or at least provide a ReadMe.txt file or something so we know bout it. Where do I download Blender? My Preferences just shows "blender" as the path, which is not a full path name to me. Does it go in the Blender folder that the Windows installer creates, or should this show a full drive/path name to it (if it creates one when I install it?

I've not tried to use any titles, yet, so this has nothing to do with the crashes. But it would have created problems later, so thanks for the clarification.

to use blender on windows you need to use full path and most of the advanced titles needs it
meybe have a checkbox or something in the installer?, do you want to install inkscape/blender

blender download: http://mirror.cs.umn.edu/blender.org/release/Blender2.76/blender-2.76b-windows64.msi
path for openshot: C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\blender.exe

Thanks. I had done a search after I posted and got this this point, then found that there is an alert in OpenShot that pops up when 3D titles option is selected giving this information as well! The only difference is the path it shows in to put in preferences which does not include the "blender.exe" on the end. I'll test it to see to see...

I get similar multiple runtime crash alerts along with the general "launch.exe has stopped working" alert by simply loading an h.264, 1080p-30fps, .mp4 video, dragging it to the time line, then trying to export a new re-encoded version (still keeping it as an H.264, 1080p-30fps, .mp4 clip).

@nwgat Do you have 4 processors? You might be getting an error on each core, during some of the thread pooling (which tries to match the # of processors). I'm going to spend some extra time running OpenShot in Windows under the GDB debugger, and see if I can catch a crash. =)

We'll get this figured out! It's hard to fix something if I can't reproduce it though. It obviously sounds like something is breaking with libvpx... I'm going to double check some things about my packaging, and be sure I'm including the correct version of libvpx. Thanks!

For what it's worth, I've tested both beta installers on 2 different computers running Windows 10, and can not reproduce this issue.

openshotcrash

I guess I'll be the first to report I'm still getting the launch.exe and C++ Runtime error messages when I do anything after I load a file into the new V3 beta OpenShot. Loading a video file (a 1080p-60fps .mp4 clip with AVC encoding) will crash about 1.5 sec after simply trying to play it. Anything else also causes similar crashes. Sigh.... :-(

I guess I should add I'm running W10.0 (build10240), fully updated with everything MS pushes to it. They have not pushed the Nov. 2015 major OS update yet though. I did an advance D/L of it last fall, and it was not working properly on my MS SurfacePro 2 system, so I think it's not ready for primetime yet either.

I guess I'll be the first to report I'm still getting the launch.exe and C++ Runtime error messages when I do anything after I load a file into the new V3 beta OpenShot.

I'm using the new 2.0.6 version from your link in update 45 am getting a crash in windows 8.1 x64, I've only seen the launcher.exe has stopped working message and not a C++ Runtime Library message. Only crashes if video is 1920x1080, If the file is 1024x768 all is good. Even a small 3.4Mb 338kbps bitrate 1080p crashes. Crashes every time if I load file, put in track and watch. Can crash if I put in track and slice. Attached logs for crash for both types and a video that makes it crash AMPLITUDE Studios.mp4 and one that doesn't intro.mp4.

Interesting about only the 1080p video causing crashes. I tried both 720p-60fps and WVGA (848 x 480) videos at 60fps and I was able to play them on the time line. But when I started to slice them and drag together the saved slice pieces, I again got the launch.exe error. It's a real puzzle, for sure.

2 different PC: Windows 8 x64, Windows 10 x64.
The second PC has an almost clean Windows installed recently.

Both can't render my clip (a simple one).
One PC has more RAM... it makes up to 40%
Another one makes only 10%.

About 30 crashes for one hour while working on clip.. especially while playing the video.

The question is: can I export my project somewhere somehow to render it in a stable environment?

Also getting this crash when working with 1080p. Debugging ASM shows a program break at:

07FE719C rep movs byte ptr es:[edi],byte ptr [esi]

Original break message was access denied at memory offset 0x0000000 - libopenshot.dll. Bad pointer perhaps?

OpenShot on Win10 starts causing a ton of disk activity on C: prior to crashing this way during export (source and destination drives are both independent disks, and NOT C:). I have 16 GB of RAM available to OpenShot, so maybe there's a leak?

I've noticed an interesting coincidence during export: OpenShot starts with about 2.8 GB of memory used during an export (for me, H.264 to H.264, video simply split). Memory usage slowly climbs to 3.3 GB, at which point it drops to 1.7 GB instantly (well, <= 1 second) and Windows begins reporting OpenShot as "Not Responding. Over 10 seconds the memory usage climbs back to 2.8 GB, Windows reports OpenShot is "Running" and.. rinse, lather repeat. Sometimes this cycle proceeds until 100% export and I have a usable video, but 9/10 times Windows decides it has had enough and decides OpenShot has crashed. During the hangs there is no disk IO, which was what I'd first suspected might be blocking.

Ditto on the Launch.exe crash at export.
Didn't see any spike in resource usage when attempting to export, it crashes immediately when proceeding to create the export file (which ends up being 0 bytes). It does consistently crash as soon as I try. I'm attempting to export a pretty simple project consisting of 5 very short .MP4's with the preset export profile Web > YouTube (tried each of all the quality options).

Fresh install of OpenShot build v2.2.0-x86_64.
Windows 7 Pro; Service Pack 1, 16 GB ram.

¯_(ツ)_/¯ Really at a loss on this one, not sure what else to give. Hope this helps.

Same, I found that there's actually a fairly serviceable editor in youtube.com/editor that lets you splice together footage if you upload it (can be set to private). Gets the job done, but I'd really like to use openshot.

@chibill This ticket might have been on the back burner (clearly), but we've made huge improvements to stability and performance in the past 60 days, especially with Windows. Please verify these crashes still happen with our latest daily build for Windows: Please visit www.openshot.org/download, click 'Other Downloads', and install the latest daily build of OpenShot.

If the crash still happens, please see these instructions (https://github.com/OpenShot/openshot-qt/blob/master/.github/CONTRIBUTING.md) for attaching logs, and re-open this ticket. If you have other issues not related to the launch.exe crash bug, please file as new bugs. Thanks!

Hiya, @jonoomph
Well, I've downloaded the newest version right after I got your update here, it's been going for about 20 mins with this message:
capture
I let it keep going, assuming that Windows is misinterpreting it as having crashed rather than giving a progress bar, but I've been using openShot for years now (Linux version under Debian) and never found it to take this long to render such a small project, so I suspect it's still an issue. Hope this helps, and thanks!

completely absurd to close this issue. I redownloaded and installed the whole program two days ago and it's as crash happy as ever. and once it crashes, then reopening it puts it into 'reload the failed project', and it crashes. and then I delete the failed project from the data folder, and relaunch it, and try to do things with it such as, oh, I don't know, edit video, and it crashes. Just to verify this, I opened it, loaded a perfectly good video file, went to export, picked Youtube, started the export, and it got to 2% before it crashes. This is Windows 10. 2.1.0.dev-1. I would love to use this program. It's worked before and it has a great interface and it looks like great effects... being able to play things backwards is magic I need. But it's infuriating and causes anxiety to wonder if with every click of the mouse it's going to crash somehow.

I have D/L the nightly builds the last several days, and I am having none of that failure to launch error problem any more on my W10 x64) PC now! I've actually been able to work with some of the editing functions now and export clips with decent rendering time. I've made some short animated "intro" clips with the "exploding" and "dissolving" title creation tools. I don't know what might have changed in the very recent nighty builds, but I'm starting to think I can actually do some efficient editing with OpenShot now!

The nightly builds can be accessed via the regular download link, but ignore the released version and click on the "other Windows downloads" link to get the latest beta version.

Am I the only one that these recent builds now seem to work well for?

The latest release (OpenShot-v2.2.0-65-g5a9712d-49-615-x86_64.exe) works well for me. I haven't had a chance to test it extensively yet, but I no longer get crashes if I don't drag clips into OpenShot in a very particular manner. I will test it with longer encode operations this evening.

One thing of note: if I start a new project, then close OpenShot and click "No" on the "Do you wish to save before exiting?" dialog.. OpenShot hangs indefinitely and pulls 100% CPU.

Having the same issue, never used this software before, and I'm struggling to keep using it with this crash. I've had to set my autosave down to seconds, just to ensure I don't loose work.. This is really frustrating.

I love how this is a closed issue too... thanks for Windows support.

And because I have Visual Studio I hit debug, and got additional debug information on the crash event:

Unhandled exception at 0x000000018073CE25 (avcodec-57.dll) in launch.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000000000000F0

I am having the same issue on Win10 64-bit. It clears when I remove the /.openshotqt directory. However when I attempt to open the same project it throws the same error. My guess is it must be a corrupted project file. Luckily it was a small project that I can do again in short order. I will attach the logs. Thanks for this great product and let me know if I can do any other testing. I can give you access to the corrupt file as well if you want.

I am not sure it's the same issue but I have serious troubles with launch.exe as well in the latest version 2.4.1 on Win7 64 & quite powerful machine.
symptoms:

  • launch.exe fully occupies single thread (running maximum capacity of single thread almost all the time)
  • 99% of time the GUI is in state (Not Responding) but not crashed. I am waiting for any action in GUI long minutes (e.g. 10 minutes)

It's not only annoying. It prevents any useful work with OpenShot. I just wonder if anyone experienced same issue. I suppose the issue could be with some type of input files (mp4?) or when the sources are large (e.g. 150 MB video)?
