Summary0001966: Error opening DCP: Unknown asset type text/xml;asdcpKind=CPL in PKL

Opening a specific DCP causes DCP-o-matic to error with:

Error: Unknown asset type text/xml;asdcpKind=CPL in PKL

Same error in both 2.14.38 and 2.15.139.

The PKL does indeed include an <Asset> section with <Type>text/xml;asdcpKind=CPL</Type>. I've seen this in other DCPs which DOM does successfully open. But perhaps this type is only legal in Interop DCPs, whereas this is a SMPTE DCP? Even if it's not legal, I think it'd be better if DOM was more liberal and could open the DCP anyway.

Manually editing the type in PKL to text/xml solves the problem - DOM then successfully opens the DCP.

This error is produced by same DCP as described in 0001965. I got around 0001965 by editing the CPL + PKL to remove all reference to the (possibly faulty) subtitle MXFs, but then hit this error instead.

This may be fixed by 2.15.140, if you're in a position to try that - if so, I'll do the same thing in 2.14.x. I think that asset type is unusual but may be allowed if you squint at it just right. 2.15.140 should accept it without complaining.

Yes, confirmed fixed in 2.15.140!

Thanks! It should also be fixed in 2.14.50 which is currently at
