Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 498853
KMS:M56GL:Mobility FireGL V5200 XVideo output image cropped to upper left of the actual frame
Last modified: 2014-06-16 09:56:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Playing video with VLC, mplayer, or Totem using XVideo for output the video image only displays the upper left of the actual video frame. The actual video frame appears cropped to the upper left corner, then scaled to fill the window. Moving the window around on the screen or opening menus in the video player application causes a weird recropping/resizing/tiling effect of the video image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Image:ScreenCasting_test.ogg
2. Make sure XV output is selected (seems to be default in Totem, not sure how to change.)
3. Play ScreenCasting_test.ogg with Totem (or VLC or mplayer)
4. Maximize the window and pull down a menu while the video is playing.
5. Move the window a bit off the edge of the screen while the video is playing.
5. In VLC, change Tools->Preferences->Video->Output to "X11" instead of "Default" or "XVideo extension video output"
6. Close/reopen the video player and retest.
Cropped/scaled video image. Weird tiling effect when pulling down a menu item. The cropped image resizes when moving the window partially off screen. Repeating the tests with "X11" video output instead of "XVideo" the problems disappear completely.
The entire video image should be displayed, not just the upper left corner. Opening menus or dragging the window shouldn't distort the image.

Yeah, known problem... try -12 from koji if you want to have xvideo, but see png problem (bug 497427)

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team
[This triage is part of collective effort done by students of University of
Rijeka Department of Informatics.]
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
