If "/path/to/Video File.ext" is renamed to "/path/to/VideoFile.ext", VLC opens it just fine.

Perhaps this is an old bug that has been fixed since Philip built the Waldorf Live images?

EDIT:  Also, VLC in Waldorf *does* open files with spaces and special characters properly when selected from the open file dialog...

Hmm, I think I may know what is causing this. There is/was a known bug with VLC where it would fail to start in a live environment. To fix this, I created a fugly wrapper script for the binary, but I think I probably forgot to wrap the arguments in quotes.

Sorry sad

^ No, I often use it out loud, and in public. yikes  I've also used "B*eber" as a euphemism (dysphemism?) in public...

Re: Waldorf development images ready for testing

I could use a little help and a hint in the right direction with my AMD HD graphic cards.
Id like to use Waldorf with fglrx, but Wheezy doesnt work with fglrx because the current xserver doesnt afaik. What do you recommend?
-Use Waldorf with fglrx with a fugly but stable hack (is there one?)
-Downgrade xserver (how?)
-Give radeon another try (then please tell me - how the heck do I get my two AMD graphic cards to work as a triple or quad head?! randr doesnt even see the cards and outputs, and xorg.conf hates me)
-Wait until fglrx works with Wheezy again (when?)
-Other solutions?
My primary goal is a stable multiple monitor Waldorf system.
I know Im asking many questions - Im not just lazy but just spent too many hours trying stuff and frustrated that windows is my only working system right now... Thanks in advance!

You will get better help with these questions if you start a new thread in the Help and Support (Testing/Unstable) section.
