Hello Jason.

One possibility is that you have spaces or accents or any special characters 
in the path of your video file. This could cause some problems if your distro 
does not use UTF8 encoding for its filesystem.

Otherwise I don't really know what the problem can be except a linking with 
older libraries as you suggested. I can only recommend that you double check 
you don't have Kdenlive installed in 2 different locations and eventually to 
remove all MLT stuff located in /usr/local/share/mlt, then make distclean in 
ffmpeg, MLT, MLT++ and Kdenlive and recompile everything.

Hope you can solve this soon.
