Call me suspicious if you will, but the problem may be something to
do with Phonon since it switched to the GStreamer backend in the last
year or so (you can choose another backend).  I imagine Phonon would
be a dependency of kdenlive.  It might be worth looking at relevant
KDE mailing-list archives, if they do not already show up on Google.

I have experimented with different output formats, with sound in the movie track itself and sound as a separate track… Only once I have managed to actually have a movie with sound, but I couldn't reproduce it. Obviously I am missing some setting somewhere. :-(
