How are you opening the file?
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2008-09-02 05:27:25 EDT
I renamed the test video file to "filename: videofile" and could open it both with dolphin and dragon directly without any problem.
Comment 3 l ciani 2008-09-02 07:00:12 EDT
I have removed ~/.kde/share/config/dragonplayerrc

I have a video file under "~/tmp/filename: videofile.mp4"

I start dragon by typing "dragon" in krunner and selecting the Dragon player icon with the mouse.

An open file dialog pops up on top of the Dragon window asking me which media would I like to play. I click on the "play file" button. The "open file" dialog windows pops up. I select the file called "filename: videofile.mp4" in ~/tmp. The dialog window closes and the focus goes back to the Dragon window.

The Dragon window is blank and the status bar says "no media loaded".

Contents of the dragonplayerrc file right after I close Dragon.

I open a konsole window, and then key "cd tmp/" and then "dragon filename:\ videofile.mp4", dragon plays the file without any problem.

I have filed this at bugs.kde.org. I believe this is not related to Dragon Player or kdemultimedia, but with kdelibs since the "open file" dialog of all applications I have tried does not open a file with a colon in its file name.

Please see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113595

Also, I am using F10 now. Don't know if this is resolved in F9.
Comment 8 l ciani 2009-01-31 19:54:39 EST
The URL to bugs.kde.org in my comment #6 is wrong.

The correct link is https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182648
