Comment 1 Stephen Haffly 2007-11-12 21:37:51 UTC
Description of problem:

Video will not play correctly with GL Desktop enabled

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

1.  Play a video using either VLC or Totem-Xine.  It plays fine with both audio
and video working correctly.

2.  Start GL Desktop from the System/Preferences/Look and Feel menu

3.  Attempt to play the video again.  Audio plays, but video is scrambled color
bars instead of the picture.

Actual results:

scrambled video

Expected results:

Video should play correctly the same as when GL Desktop is not running.

This is a problem with the proprietary nvidia driver. We can't support nvidia's
closed-source product, so you'll have to talk to them. They provide unofficial
support on their forums: 

As a workaround, you can change the video output device to 'x11' using
gstreamer-properties and it may work properly.
