Please try the updated kdenlive:



The update solved the issue for me. If it works for you, too, I'll push the packages to QA procedure.
Comment 2 Sylvainsjc 2013-02-13 21:25:42 MSK
Yes it works on X86_64.

Great thanks ;)
Comment 3 Denis Silakov 2013-02-14 10:01:51 MSK

Updated kdenlive to 0.9.4 (backported from Desktop Fresh) to work correctly with modern MLT.

Comment 4 Vladimir Potapov 2013-02-14 10:47:02 MSK
I can't reproduce this error... old KDEnlive work correct on my marathon x64.
Comment 5 Denis Silakov 2013-02-14 10:48:30 MSK
I had the same situation and was able to reproduce the error only after installing kdenlive in clean VM...
Comment 6 Vladimir Potapov 2013-02-14 12:00:50 MSK
New version KDEnlive don't require RecordMyDesktop, but current package set up it. http://www.opennet.ru/opennews/art.shtml?num=35978
Comment 7 Denis Silakov 2013-02-14 12:09:10 MSK
Thanks for the note, I'll rebuild without recordmydesktop requirement...
Comment 9 Vladimir Potapov 2013-02-14 15:39:38 MSK
If I code the video to DVD, the resulting video without sound. (In fresh all ok)
Comment 10 Denis Silakov 2013-02-14 17:41:43 MSK
Did the previous kdenlive version work correctly in this situation?
Comment 11 Vladimir Potapov 2013-02-14 18:10:21 MSK
I reproduce the bug :-)
(urpme --auto-orphans)
I can't run old version kdenlive...
Comment 12 Vladimir Potapov 2013-02-14 18:39:14 MSK
I found it! KDEnlive work (sound-ok) only prevision version of MLT.
New KDEnlive with new MLT save vob-files without sound (save mp4 - ok, sound present)
Comment 13 Denis Silakov 2013-02-28 12:23:01 MSK
Unfortunately, we still can't find time to investigate the issue deeper. I would suggest to publish kdenlive in its current state (since it is definitely better than non-working kdenlive which is currently in repos) and file a separate bug about error with vob files
