Summary0002344: capture filename made with dvgrab and timeconde make kdenlive not import clips
Descriptionthe issue I think is related to escaping filename when calling mlt
I import clips from a camcorder and I use for dvgrab the parameter --timecode that make filename with some time information

for example:

where we have the time of the take and length from the beginning of the tape.

I cannot import this clip from kdenlive so I launched kdenlive from strace and tada! here it is the problem:

[pid 6117] open("/media/sf_filmati/capture2011.03.16_16-32-31--01", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
[pid 6117] open("/media/sf_filmati/capture2011.03.16_16-32-31--01", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

as you see, the filename has been truncated.... so kdenlive can't load it

This is an MLT issue. Currently, MLT does not support loading of video clips with ':' in their name, because it conflicts with the way it handles its parameters... not sure this one will get fixed soon...

so probably it's better if kdenlive sanitizes this because from user point of view, wrong filenames are generated internally by kdenlive (of course by dvgrab) and it's kdenlive that doesn't eat its own cooking.

Thank you for your support

I agree that it is ridiculous to create a file that then cannot be used. I just committed a workaround in Kdenlive (svn rev. 5947) that will replace ':' with '_' in the files names when importing dvgrab files captured in Kdenlive.

Using ':' colons in filenames also makes them incompatible with Microsoft Windows as well, no big deal, possibly not but something to consider in a mixed network, when files are shared or archiving.
