|0003003||Kdenlive||File Loading||public||2013-03-05 13:10||2013-04-07 09:34|
|Platform||32 bit intel and alike||OS||Ubuntu||OS Version||12.10|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.9.6|
|Summary||0003003: Cannot open the project file, error is: unexpected character Do you want to open a backup file?|
|Description||I 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 Reproduce||REPRODUCE:|
Attached MP3 file:
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;
WORK AROUND FIX:
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.
|Additional Information||Attached MP3 file:|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Build/Install Method||Distribution package|
I had the same problem with one of my projects. The issue is related with id3 tag names containing white spaces. This results in invalid kdenlive project files (xml attributes using spaces for those tags).
It seems it has been fixed in current development version.
To fix this error in current version, you can remove your mp3 tags (only those with withe spaces). Or you can edit your kdenlive files with a text editor and remove those xml attributes containing white spaces (they are spotted by the error message).
