please, don't compress the stuff -- it is harder to work with it.

Can fully reproduce here with ATI Technologies Inc RV380 [Radeon X600].

Xorg configuration file

Just for the case it would be contain anything useful I'm attaching also my
configuration for Xorg.

Comment 7 Zdenek Kabelac 2007-11-20 13:18:03 UTC
As Matej suggested - I've tested the video playback with Totem &
gstreamer-properties Xv settings and this seems to be working properly. I'll do
more tests later with compiled players (mplayer/avifile) by myself to give more
comments. (As my Xv problem might be possibly some issue of mplayer rpm)

Anyway still applies my problem with Xorg crash while I've tried to -vo gl
surface and mplayer.

Comment 8 Zdenek Kabelac 2007-11-21 11:15:12 UTC
I've checked compilation of mplayer from SVN - and even this fresh build
couldn't open Xv rendering - on the other hand - rendering via SDL Xv  seems to
work well. Unfortunately I cannot test avifile as the Qt3 seems to be broken at
this moment.

However - the last commit to Xv output in mplayer is dated 28.Aug and that was
even some minor cosmetic header file change - so I'm not sure, if it's the real
bug of mplayer - or something changed in the Xv interface and requires
modification in the mplayer's code.

Comment 9 Matěj Cepl 2007-11-21 12:18:30 UTC
OK, so the conclusion is that there are two issue we should deal with (sorry,
mplayer is off-topic in this bugzilla):

a) using gl video crashes X server,
b) my problem with video being black in totem

Do you see anything else? I will probably split my bug into the separate one.

Comment 10 Zdenek Kabelac 2007-11-21 12:43:11 UTC
Adding more details - I'm running default metacity window manager and I'm not
using compiz or any other 3D application (at least none I would know about)

Comment 11 Zdenek Kabelac 2008-04-09 15:15:01 UTC
Update - with current version of Xorg 


the xv rendering surface works ok in mplayer - the bug could be probably closed.
