    Openshot does not start, I get a segmentation fault in libmlt (see /var/log/syslog):

    This is what I get when I try to start openshot from commandline:

    $ openshot

    I was able to start OpenShot, create a project, and save that project.

    However, when I opened OpenShot and tried to open that saved project…the project opened as semi-blank: no content was visible, and the viewer was all black.
