Summary0003002: Cannot open the project file, error is: unexpected character Do you want to open a backup file?
DescriptionI did some work on a project and closed it. The next day tried to open it again and got the error message above.

I opened the .kdenlive project file in a text editor and noticed html entities in it, like < and "

In a process of elimination I tracked down which clip file caused the corruption. It turned out to be a MP3 audio file ( find it attached ). The issue was specifically with the MP3 metadata.

To fix the problem I opened the MP3 file on Audacity and removed all its Metadata ( Go File -> Export | Give a name to the output file | The metadata window pops up ).
Steps To ReproduceREPRODUCE:

1. Create a new project;
2. Add the attached MP3 file into your audio track;
3. Close the project;
4. Try to open it again;

1. Open the attached MP3 file on Audacity;
2. Go File -> Export | Then give a name for the output file
3. A Metadata window will popup. Delete all the metadata.
TagsNo tags attached.
