kdenlive crashes when loading clips

Either since last update or a bit longer (haven’t used it for ~2 weeks), kdenlive crashes when I open it to a new project and try to load external clips, be it mp4 files with h.264 video or old DVD vobs with mpeg2 (haven’t tried other files).

Cleaning up all kdenlive config files (pristine user) yields the same thing (directly from the shell where I opened kdenlive):

/////////// starting to add bin clips
/////////// found list (QUrl("file:///home/alex/Desktop/DR-1.mp4"))
/////////// creatclipsfromlist (QUrl("file:///home/alex/Desktop/DR-1.mp4")) true "-1"
/////////// createClipFromFile "/home/alex/Desktop/DR-1.mp4" "-1"
=== GOT DROPPED MIME:  "video/mp4"

Mind you that I’m running this in XFCE, not with a real KDE session (a thing I have been doing for > 10 years without problems).

I am not sure, but isn’t your problem related to https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/571478-Snapshot-20220614-Kdenlive-and-Thermal-Monitor-issues?

Yes, I think it is the same issue. I didn’t find the other thread though (the “thermal issue” might have thrown me off). The Bugzilla Bug 1200688 looks like it’s the same issue as mine.

Fixed with today’s update in Melt 7.8.0
