Thread: AMD.ATI Mobility X1600 - video and flash playback flickering

    Default AMD.ATI Mobility X1600 - video and flash playback flickering

    Hello from Bulgaria, this is my first post. I've a serious problem, that can't be solved at all.
    There is a lot of flickering, while i'm playing video files or flash clips in firefox (YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. for example).
    It makes no difference, if i'm using the opensource ATI driver - radeonhd or the propriety driver - fglrx (i've tested the whole version tree from 8.33 to 8.493).

    This is my original 'xorg.conf' file:

    I've also tried some tweaking in the 'xorg.file' like:
    Option "TexturedVideo" "off"
    Option "VideoOverlay" "on/off"
    Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
    Option "XvmcUsesTextures" "True"
    ...
    No difference !

    Any suggestions !?!
    Or it's an ATI driver issue.

    I have the X1400. I haven't noticed a problem playing back video. Do you have Desktop Effects turned on? I got a grey screen when I turned them on. I would make sure these are off for a start. The ATI drivers seem to be causing problems going by other postings.

    No, I don't have 3D Desktop effects turned on. But it doesn't matter if it (Compiz Fusion Manager) is turned on or off. There is bad flickering.

    I've also tried 'vesa' and 'fbdev' driver. The problem persists again, but there's less flickering. I should specify that there's flickering when the objects move on the video, if they are motionless - no flickering at all.
    Under WinXP - i've never noticed ANY flickering. The card is ok, the monitor is LCD Widescreen, 17 ", 1680x1050. The computer is a HP nx9420 rh450ea laptop.

    I have the X700, no problems with flash either. You may want to try the opensuse-specific fglrx driver for this issue. In yast repository manager, you can find the ati repo under community repositories. Install the driver from there. That's what I'm using and it works fine on my laptop... for flash videos anyway.

    Have you tried xshm as an output video device in Xine or X11 in VLC?

    Both can be configured through the options although in VLC you might have to push the Advanced button to see the video output device. You can experiment with different output plugins to see if any of them work for you.

    In
    Kaffeine it's Settings / xine Engine Parameters / Video ->
    MPlayer -> mplayer -gui -> Right Mouse -> Preferences -> Video
    VLC -> Settings -> Preferences -> Video -> Output Modules
