This is the content of an cmx_3600 EDL exported from Avid media composer:

TITLE:   Untitled Sequence.01 
001  103043_0 V     C        01:00:00:00 01:00:08:10 01:00:00:00 01:00:08:10 
* LOC: 01:00:02:01 RED

As you can see the marker does not have a name

Current behavior:

>>> timeline = otio.adapters.read_from_file('markers.edl')
>>> list(timeline.each_clip())[0].markers

Expected behavior:

>>> timeline = otio.adapters.read_from_file('markers.edl')
>>> list(timeline.each_clip())[0].markers
otio.schema.Marker(name='', marked_range=otio.opentime.TimeRange(start_time=otio.opentime.RationalTime(value=86449, rate=24), duration=otio.opentime.RationalTime(value=0, rate=1)), metadata={'cmx_3600': {'color': u'RED'}})

From what I saw this is due to the regular expression that matches locator comments in line 457.
Should OpenTimelineIO support unnamed markers ? I feel like it should since some editing systems are able to export unnamed markers. Let me know what you think !

My corporation is waiting for confirmation that our CLA was received. We will submit a PR as soon as possible.
