Kdenlive only builds/links against libmlt.
The latter is/has to be built against ffmpeg for full codec support.

The Factory kdenlive (15.04.x) does build against Qt5, like libmlt does (on

Nothing is "broken".

Kdenlive 15.04 is the new port to KDE Frameworks5, that's why it builds 
against (and uses) KF5 and Qt5.
See also https://kdenlive.org/node/9433, in particular: "Since we are now 
based on Qt5/KF5, you NEED KDE Frameworks 5 to run Kdenlive."

It is not possible to build it for/against KDE4/Qt4 any more, the last KDE4 
based version is 0.9.10.
And it is not possible to build the KDE4 based 0.9.10 against KF5/Qt5 either.

Kind Regards,
