Sure thing attached, I did notice that a few local wmv files did in fact work, but the majority did not, they are from various sources and of different resolutions and aspect ratios.
I use dolphin file browser and when I save the file with a 'bad' wmv file the thumbnail for the project in dolphin turns into the default kdenlive filetype icon indicating that if I was to open this project it would fail, which it does.

Thanks. I see the problem, it is caused be some FFmpeg properties for that file that contain a space in their name, something I have not seen before. Could you attach here or mail me ( jb at kdenlive org ) one of there wmv file so that I can make further tests?

Should be fixed in Kdenlive git now, please test. Broken project will still be broken but from now on you should be able to work correctly with these clips.

Please test

Awesome, tested a majority of the files that failed for me before and they all imported with no problems. :D Thanks and love the project.
