I was able to proceed by manually entering a file name in the "Filename"
box that comes up when you click the Open icon:


You can also get around the problem by commenting out the three lines
involving "filt" in the _button_press_event_cb function of the
IntroFallbackVideo class in intro.py, which will allow you to browse and
choose any file.  I'm not sure why the file filter is not set correctly
for images.
