How big is your clip?

In any case, as a workaround, you could edit discoverer.py and replace the line

        self.timeout_id = gobject.timeout_add_seconds(10, self._timeoutCb)

By

        self.timeout_id = gobject.timeout_add_seconds(60, self._timeoutCb)

(which would make the timer wait for 60 seconds instead of 10).
But normally, this shouldn't be needed and you should file a bug with details about your file, it shouldn't take so long. I'm just giving you this temporary trick because you said it is urgent.

I am new to ubuntu. So don't knw how to edit plz help

http://www.pitivi.org/manual/

Or ask specific questions.

If you meant that you don't know how to edit text files such as /usr/lib/pitivi/python/pitivi/discoverer.py, then I strongly advise that you do not do it unless you know what you are doing.

Can you help with this problem?
