I'm doing some editing and I'm trying to render my video but regardless of the output format what gets rendered is just a white screen, still video with the length of my project.

I'm using Kdenlive Version 19.08.2 on Ubuntu 18.04

Perhaps there is already a solution to this problem but I'm having a really hard time finding the correct wording to look up..


I had this issue with moving files outside of Kdenlive. It did find them using a recursive search, but the video was white. I have deleted them from the project and added them again. This fixed it in my case.

Apparently the problem was that my video sources contained spaces in their names i.e.
"My Video.mp4". Once I removed all spaces from the filenames it started rendering normally.
