After update to Kubuntu 17.10 video playback is buggy. On most video files Gwenview brings the whole system to a halt, just leaves some seconds to interact and kill the application to rescue the system or a warm reboot is necessary.
This happens elsewhere as well e.g. previewing video in Dolphin. In contrast VLC plays the videos smoothly and the system functions as usual. I guess some updated backends are at fault.
