Problem with "read node" to open videos in linux

Hi. When i work with some video formats (.mp4, .avi) natron crash in 2.4.0 version; i try open without connect with the viewer and crash too. In version 2.3.15 i don’t have this problem.

PS: I try to open some videos .avi with hight resolution and are charged ok. :thinking:


Hi, where did you install Natron from?

i downloaded the two versions from the same place, the official page of natron. (

Great, just needed to know where the builds came from.

I would need to know some more info on the files you tried, can you run ffmpeg -i VIDEO_FILENAME in a terminal and post the result here.

hi rodlie, this is the result:
