Can not open file



I have had the problem of not being able to open files in shotcut. I go into open file, choose a MKV file and it wont let me open it. It says failed to open “File Name”

Hi @Joey
These files you try to open, do they play normally in the media players on your computer?

What MKV file? I do not have it. All my MKV files open, but I am sure I can probably craft one that does not. Shotcut will never be able to open everything, and that is not a bug. You simply said “open files,” but does that mean every file you tried or only some? You might simply have a bad install.
