Lightroom Classic: Video Import Error caused by MediaCore plugins

When I try to import video files into my catalog it tells me "There is a problem with the video file (12)".  There is no issue with my video files.  I removed a video that had previously been imported to my catalog with no issue and tried reimporting as a test and it would not import.  I received the same message.  I created a new catalog to test and same message and video would not import.  This is a recent issue as i have been able to import videos with no problems.  The issue is occurring on both my Mac Book Pro and my Mac Pro.

I had the same issue, and after a few hours of investigation I found it was caused by MediaCore plugins crashing dynamiclinkmediaserver. I had the GoPro Reframe and Insta360Importer plugins installed in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore.

 

Removing both plugins resolved the problem for me.

Log files I checked in the process:

~/Library/Logs/AdobeIPCBroker.log (indicated that dynamiclinkmediaserver was crashing)
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/dynamiclinkmediaserver/13.0/Plugin Loading.log (indicated that third-party plugins were being loaded)


Running Lightroom Classic from the terminal also provides some helpful additional output that doesn't seem to be caught by any logging facilities.

Thank you for your help!  This solved the issue.  I hate this dynamiclink.  This is the second time I've had an issue involving it.  I sent insta360 an email telling them the issue with their plugin.  Did you also notify them?  You seem to understand the logs and issue better than me.

Yes, I did also email them. We can only hope that Insta360 will remedy this issue in a future update. It's a shame that an ill behaved plugin can have such annoying and difficult to diagnose consequences.

 

Luckily I don't work with Insta360 files very often so for now just moving the plugin in/out of that folder isn't too much of an inconvenience for me.

 

Anyway, I'm happy to hear that I could help you!

You might try resetting your preferences.

 

“Reset Procedure:

1. Close Lightroom.

2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.

3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.

4. Close Lightroom.

5. Restart Lightroom.”

 

Let us know how that works.

@Rick resetting the setting did not fix the issue

Darn...

I've posted this to our engineers for other ideas.

Michael, Please share your OS version, as well as Lightroom Classic version.

 

Did you try the troubleshooting steps from https://helpx.adobe.com/in/lightroom-classic/kb/troubleshoot-video-issues.html?

I had an import video error before and that was related to a dynamiclink issue and had to do complete uninstall with the help of adobe support and that fixed the issue.  When i had that issue it told me in the import dialog that i had a dynamiclink error.  I am noticing that only one of the 2 dynamiclink processes is running in activity monitor link before when i had the dynamiclink error.  It is weird that both computers get the same error at the same time. 

 

Here is what my log file says:

That looks exactly like what I saw. What does the dynamiclinkmediaserver log file say? ( ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/dynamiclinkmediaserver/13.0/Plugin Loading.log )

Try removing the Insta360Importer plugin from /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/ . I am almost 100% certain this is the culprit.

I am using LR Classic v10.2 build [202103041821-226a1211] Camera Raw v13.2 on my

iMac (27", late 2013) 32GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB running macOS Catalina v10.15.7.

Furthermore, I use Adobe Premiere Pro 2021 v15.1 with the GoPro FX Reframe plugin-1.2.1.133 for 360° shots.

Also I have Insta360 Studio 2021 v3.6.4 installed. Which installs the file /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/Insta360Importer.bundle.

As of this moment, LR no longer shows me any video files under Library. If I now rename the file Insta360Importer.bundle to e.g. Insta360Importer.$bundle, the video files are displayed again after restarting LR.

What can I do so I don't have to keep renaming?

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled LR Classic does not show videos in the library when Insta360Importer.bundle is installed

I had the same problem.  I'm lucky in that I don't use premiere, so I just deleted the plugin file.

But I hope Adobe files this as a bug and looks into it.  Premiere plugins shouldn't be reducing LR's functionality.
