Kdenlive does not recognize codecs


Hallo.

I just installed Kdenlive 0.81 on my Kubuntu distro, and I find it wonderful, easyer then Cinelerra and more powerful than Kino, so.. Optimum compromise.

Unfortunately, when I try to render my videos (in both AVI and MPEG4) I get a message that (for example, for MPEG4) "libmp3lame codec is not supported", or something like that. Which is strange, because avery other multimedia application is working just fine.

I googled around and I already tried all the usual suggestion:
  • Re-running the configuration wizard
  • tried re-installing libmp3lame (well, actually the package name is libmp3lame0, I hope it's ok)
  • tried re-installing libav
  • tried reinstalling ffmpeg as a whole


Nothing worked.

Is there some parameter to be set in some configuration menu to force Kdenlive to look for codecs in the proper directories?

I read also that sometime it is just a false alarm, and that from version 0.9 on there is the possibility to skip the codec check and force the rendering even with the error message. Unfortunately, I couldn't find this version in the standard reps. Anybody knows where I could find it?

Thank you very much

I don't use kdenlive, but a web search for "kdenlive codecs" turned up this. It might help:
