Package: kdenlive
Version: 17.08.3-2
Severity: normal

Hi Patrick,

I like the free .webm video format.

kdenlive used to render to it for me.

Unfortunately, now it crashes.

Here's how:

1.) $ kdenlive

2.) File->New->Full HD 1080->HD 1080p 25 fps

3.) Project->Add color clip->Clip Color = black

4.) Drag the color clip from

        the project bin 


        the time line

5.) (red) Render (button)
        ->Generic (HD for web, mobile devices...)
            ->WebM - the widespread free format (VP8/Vorbis)

6.) Render to File (button)

I expected to see

    Rendering finished in ....

in the render window's Job Queue tab.

Unfortunately, I saw

    Rendering crashed.

The render window's Job Queue tab has an error log
that says

    [webm @ 0x9bd0b080] Using AVStream.codec to
    pass codec parameters to muxers is deprecated,
    use AVStream.codecpar instead. [webm @
    0x9bd0b080] Using AVStream.codec to pass codec
    parameters to muxers is deprecated, use
    AVStream.codecpar instead

Rendering to the 

    Lossless/HQ .mkv (HuffYUV (huffyuv + flac) 

format works OK.

ffmpeg can convert that .mkv file to .webm with

    $ ffmpeg -i tmp/black.mkv tmp/black.webm

I hoped to find diagnostic info in kdenlive's
render log.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the log.

See bug 884267.
