Description W. Michael Petullo 2002-03-30 14:56:29 EST

Description of problem:
Video is not scaling properly when running xawtv using its fullscreen/XVideo mode.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
run `xawtv -xv -f`


Actual Results:  Video only filled top half of screen, stretched horizontaly to
fill the space.  The bottom half of the screen is a blue field.

Expected Results:  Video should be scaled by XFree86's XVideo extension so that
it fills the entire screen.

Additional info:

The v4l module is loaded by XFree86.  The XVideo extension also loads properly.

Xawtv worked fine in fullscreen/XVideo mode with Redhat Linux 7.2 on the same
system.  The only changes are the upgrade of RPMs to the Skipjack packages.
Comment 1 W. Michael Petullo 2002-03-30 15:28:24 EST
A while after submitting this bug I realized that my NVidia X driver was at
fault.  Unfortunately, I was using NVidia's proprietary driver, which seems to
have fallen behind XFree86 again.

Using XFree86's driver fixes the problem, at the cost of losing hardware
accelerated 3-D graphics.

NVidia's fault, not Redhat or XFree86's.
