Description of problem:
Video is not scaling properly when running xawtv using its fullscreen/XVideo mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
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.
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.
