Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492227
xvideo garbled when another window overlaps top to bottom
Last modified: 2009-03-27 16:18:30 EDT
Description of problem:
When playing a video using xvideo the display is fine when another window partially covers the video window. If the covering window covers all the way from top to bottom then the video is mixed up. Covering from left to right works correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set gstream to xvideo.
2. Play a video in totem.
3. Partially cover the video top to bottom with another window.
Video it mixed up.
Video plays correctly.
Even the test video in the gstream control does plays incorrectly when covered.

Video Not Working
I notice the problem too, in the F11 nouveau livecd test for xvideo.
It also happens if you move the video window partially off the screen left or right.
I tested on a Geforce 8600GT M
Same here. I'm using the Test-Day-Live-CD. Tested on Geforce 8600GT
ditto on 8800GT
same here on Quadro NVS 140M / F11 nouveau livecd test for xvideo.
Thanks everyone! I'm fairly sure I've found the problem on here, I'll check today to see how non-G80 cards fare as it's likely the effect them too. Will link to a fixed RPM once it's done :)
Same here on a 8600 GT (0402)

Can you guys try the build at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=95521, it should fix the issue.
I booted the Test Day Live image again, and installed the updated x86_64 package from the koji link above. That update makes things work beautifully here, thanks Ben.
I'm setting this to MODIFIED, but since this is Craig's bug, he should try it out too, and if things work out I think this can be closed as RAWHIDE.
I'd say this fixes it for me too.
I noticed that if I drag a window around fast over the overlay the redraw trail is a bit noticeable, but besides that (which is not very noticeable) it's working fine.
The new RPM fixes this for me.
