Comment 1 Franz Felberer 2014-12-02 18:56:06 UTC
using an "umlaut" (ä,ö,ü) in the filename of the video results in not being able to import the video file. libre office states the file s not supported while its only a problem with the name.

Comment 6 Franz Felberer 2014-12-03 13:02:23 UTC
dear all,

i just realized that the problem is not due to the "umlaute" (äöü) but due to the original filename contains [ and ].
