Some files I try to edit in DVDflick is reported as "No usable video track". Why? It seems to me to be normal mp4 files that got this error.
Is there a workaround to this problem?

Try a simple name such as Matthias,some programs get confused with different types of word combinations.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
Have you tried to rename the track just to see if it helps?I think,therefore i am a hamster.
I tested this myself in DVD Flick 1.3.10 and was able to recreate the problem.
Renaming or re-multiplexing didn't solve it.
Unless there is something else that's not obvious which may eventually be found,
probably quicker to use Vdub2 to do a lossless reencode to Lagarith and use that as the source.
Here's a test file that DVD Flick is unable to find the video stream
With the ghar.mp4-clip.mp4
Because of the shortness of the video.
I had to not create a Menu.
I got an error with a menu.
Not the same error as the OP.
Other than that all went smooth no error.
I did not have DVDFlick installed on my Windows 7 OS.
I tested in a virtual environment so I wouldn't have to install it.
It was a good program for its' time & I used it a lot at one time.
Perhaps the system directshow filters are a factor, but I thought the program used another method (ffmpeg ?) to open the source files
EDIT tried again using another XP box this time using LAV filters Vs. FFdshow/Haali on the other one, file is not accepted in either
I see this in dvdflick.log:
12:52:59 PM: Loading source C:\Documents and Settings\Dave New\Desktop\ghar.mp4-clip.mp4 12:52:59 PM: PIPE: Executing C:\Program Files\DVD Flick\bin\ffmpeg.exe -analyzeduration 30M -threads 4 -i "C:\Documents and Settings\Dave New\Desktop\ghar.mp4-clip.mp4" 12:52:59 PM: PIPE: Options: C:\Program Files\DVD Flick\, C:\DOCUME~1\Dave New\Local Settings\Temp\analyse.txt 12:53:03 PM: Attempting to delete C:\DOCUME~1\Dave New\Local Settings\Temp\analyse.txt

The Windows 7 32-bit I used uses LAV filters,
In the posted log it shows ffmpeg.
Also if you check your Windows Task Manager it shows ffmpeg working while DVDFlick.
What I used to use DVDFlick for was to put several YouTube videos on a DVD.
I would have to look but there is a limited number of separate files it can handle.
It's fairly high IIRC.
I have another Windows 7 32-bit. i can test it on.
I also have a Windows 7 64-bit I could test it on but it is not as handy to use.
I also have an XP pro 32-bit partition.
Thanks for posting your output.
I get similar when I switch source files (to one that works) and everything is normal.
I have not yet discovered the reason why that particular source is rejected on my system
