My new PiTiVi 0.15 has severe problems with .VOB files. A few weeks ago, it was just a performance problem: it would take several minutes just to reposition the play head, for example. Now it cannot display .VOB files at all, not even short ones. I have good, bad, ugly, etc. Nothing has changed that I am aware of, except possible automatic updates (in libraries?). I don't think any packages have been removed.
These are normal NTSC videos. VLC shows MPEG-1/2 Video (mpgv), 720x480, 59.940059 frames/s; A52 Audio (AC3), 48000 Hz.
I have version 0.15.0-1~natty1 from the Ubuntu PPA. The default version 0.13 actually worked, although it also had some serious performance problems. Any hints?
Actually, it won't preview much of anything but .AVI files, and the previous version is also messed up. I believe I was warned that the video libraries would be updated with the PPA, and in fact some other video stuff doesn't work well any more. Does this ring any bells?

Hmm, if you've had updates to the gst plugins in the past few weeks,
then this does look like it could be the cause rather than pitivi just
suddenly stopping working with previously working files... I wish I
could be more helpful than confirming what you already suspect ;(
