The problem at the moment is that kdenlive in KDE:Extra is broken, because it 
still links to Factory (although KDE:Extra isn't the devel project for 
Factory's kdenlive any more).

This will hopefully get resolved soon.

For now you can install kdenlive from KDE:Extra as a workaround (the repo 
itself still contains the KDE4-based version 0.9.10). As it's libmlt that does 
the actual work (kdenlive is basically just a frontend), you won't be missing 
anything, not even restricted codecs...

PS: the version 15.04.x from KDE:Applications does work fine (even on 13.2), 
but the crash is caused by a Qt4/Qt5 conflict (libmlt from Packman is built 
against Qt4 in 13.2, but kdenlive 15.04 is KF5-based and therefore uses Qt5).
You'd have to install the Qt5-based libmlt from KDE:Applications though, which 
of course doesn't support ffmpeg/restricted codecs on 13.2. And frei0r-plugins 
would cause a crash too as those pull in Qt4 as well (that's still a problem 
in Factory too AFAICS), but as they are only recommended you could uninstall 

Kind Regards,
