Thread: Kdenlive: "invalid clip" when trying to import MP3 file

    Default Kdenlive: "invalid clip" when trying to import MP3 file

    I installed kdenlive with all possible dependencies I found around (libmlt, melt, libavcodec, ffmpeg...) from the Packman repository. I'm able to import and play a MP4 file taken by my phone, but I cannot import a simple MP3 track. I always get the "invalid clip" message. Any ideas why? I suppose I forgot to install some dependency, or I have an incorrect version of some library...

    Maybe if someone who is able to import MP3 files with kdenlive could post his current configuration (package versions, used repositories...).

    Okay. It seems to be fixed.

    I converted the mp3 to wav and ogg, but I wasn't able to import either of them, still getting the same "invalid clip" message. My further investigation led to a discovery that I'm not able to play any of those files using ffplay. It crashed with a message Invalid data found when processing input and in the error output I found a line ffplay WARNING: library configuration mismatch. (I'm writing this so that anyone with similar symptoms could find this in the future).

    I opened software manager in Yast, used search to find all ffmpeg related packages and I forced them to update. There was some kind of conflict, so several packages were completely removed, some other packages were updated by a minor version and some were simply reinstalled. After that ffplay started to work and consequently I was able to finally import those tracks to kdenlive.
