[Kdenlive-devel] 0.7.6 crashes on Ubuntu 9.10

GTK-recordmydesktop works fine. I can play the video. Just not with kdenlive. The melt player won't play the video. It seems kdenlive needs work. Unless there's something I'm missing. So far nobody is giving me any useful information. 

Here's a sample video that I rendered with kdenlive using the youtube settings. I don't know why it looks this way. 

Here's an example without kdenlive. I recorded the video with GTK-recordmydesktop and just uploaded the ogv file to youtube. 

1. Why is the kdenlive video so small? Most of it is a black border.
2. Is there something wrong with melt? It won't play video of any kind.
3. I've seen screen casts that were made with kdenlive. Why are there no instructions for this? 
4. Is Kdenlive 0.7.6 for Ubuntu working? I only ask cause it seems to crash a lot and I can't get any of it to work right. 

I think kdenlive has a lot of features and looks like it could be a great video editing tool. However, it doesn't do anyone any good if it doesn't work.

> When I try to play the video back it locks up and stops working
When I've used GTK-recordmydesktop (qt-recordmydesktop isn't available in Debian Sid), those videos also lock up on me.  Dragon and Kaffeine and others all seem to play parts of the video but never the whole thing, never the same parts, and never smoothly.

Perhaps its a bug in the recordmydesktop software or its transcoder, or in the Debian version of this package (which the *buntus use for their releases).  I've never investigated further.
