Known problems and Bugs

  PiTiVi relies on the GStreamer multimedia framework and the
accompanying plugins to handle the various medias and their
transformation. PiTiVi being a novelty usage of GStreamer, there are
some problems with plugins not handling completely/correctly the
GStreamer API. These problems are in the process of being corrected.
  This means that it is not guaranteed that all codecs, containers or
effects work properly with PiTiVi.

  Handled Containers:
  * .avi for reading
  * .ogg for reading and encoding
  * MPEG1 files for reading and some MPEG2 files
  Handled codecs:
  * DV : reading
  * Theora : reading and encoding
  * Vorbis : reading and encoding
  * MP3 : reading and encoding
  Handled effects:
  * median
  * EffectTV (all of them)

  The Project files do not yet save the position of the sources and
effects on the Timeline.
