    Default VLC--resizing does not work, mostly black screen

    After toying around with the options in vlc I found I can only get it to resize the video if I select "Simple Direct Media Layer" as my Video->Output and using "VA-API video decoder via X11" for my decoding Input/Codecs->hardware accelerated decoding. It used to work just fine with automatic. With Simple Direct Media Layer it opens up another window for the movie and the regular window for controls. I can live with that, but just curious what is going on with vlc. I've also had a problem while playing dvd's and having vlc choose the right audio channel.
    Any pointers, info?
    vlc is from the packman repo

    Code:
    rpm -q vlc
    vlc-2.2.1-289.2.x86_64

    In short, it's a problem/incompatibility with Qt 5.5.

    Workarounds:
    - downgrade Qt5 to the 5.4.2 versions from the openSUSE 13.2 update repo
    or
    - activate the "skinnable GUI" in VLC's settings (Interface->Use custom skin)

    For your other problem, try to uninstall libvdpau_va_gl1.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes changing to a skin works perfectly. Thank you very much. Not willing to downgrade qt, but hope they figure out the problem.
