Crash with "Restore previous session" when file does not exist
« on: October 08, 2019, 03:50:29 AM »
With current git master, I attempted to use the Recent->Restore Session menu item when the previously-loaded file did not exist.  The gui first informed me that the file did not exist ("file.mp4" does not exist) and then crashed:

Assert failed :ref<_segments.getNbRefVideos()

The lastEdit.py script doesn't check if the file load actually succeeded and addSegment objects to being called without actual underlying data.

It would not be enough to check that the file still exists. It would be necessary to pre-parse each script to split it in expressions instead of delegating all this to a script engine. The current design provides no means to stop execution after a failure, thus assert as the lesser evil.

No.  In fact,

Code: [Select]
adm = Avidemux()
rv = adm.loadVideo("/home/andrew/bogus.flv")
if rv == 1:
  adm.clearSegments()
  adm.addSegment(0, 0, 17768000)
  ...

works fine.  It complains about the missing file and does not crash.

As long as you implement the necessary return value check in python, yes, this works. But the problem is with scripts which don't do that, which are all existing auto-generated scripts including session saving.

And now imagine that a failure occurs in a call somewhere later on. What should we do then? Only stop there? Close the last appended video? Close all videos and invalidate the session?

It is also absolutely legitimate not to loadVideo() in a script at all and start with addSegment() right away which currently doesn't check whether its arguments match the given video... It is a big can of worms.

The easiest path would be to patch PythonScriptWriter.cpp to include rv checks for loadVideo() and to add input value checks to addSegment(), but it will still remain a patchwork (no pun intended) and will make scripts harder to read for a layman.

It's hard to imagine anything worse than crashing because a file disappeared.  It'd be great if it was impossible to crash the app from python, but I can accept that it may be too much work.  But that's a long way away from "don't autogenerate scripts that crash".

If you don't want to write a more complicated script (is return checking really that complicated?), admPyClass.pl could be taught to pay attention to return codes from functions like loadVideo and raise exceptions.  It'd be more work, but it would also catch a wider class of problems.

I wholeheartedly agree UX-wise. Just too many construction areas at once.
