Thread: tumbleweed/vlc/black screen

  1. #1

    Default tumbleweed/vlc/black screen

    I have upgraded from 13.2 to Tumbleweed. vlc and vlc codes are installed from Packman. When I play a video I can hear audio, but have a black screen. Can anyone advise how to fix this?

    Have you switched the Packman repo to the Tumbleweed version?
    Please post your repo list.

    Also try to do a full switch to the Packman repo. The upgrade might have installed crippled multimedia packages from the standard repo.

    All are Tumbleweed repos. I have done zypper dup a couple of times since the upgrade. I can play videos with mplayer and totem.

    We need
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    output. This one contains only names, not the real sources (URLs).
    Also the prompts and command are missing.

    But a "zypper dup" can switch packages back to the standard versions, at least with the default priorities (you didn't post the repo priorities either).
    You need to run "zypper dup --from packman_essentials" (or "zypper dup --from 1").

    Also, try to uninstall libvdpau_va_gl1 if it is installed. Some people had problems with VLC when this is installed. VLC supports VA-API directly anyway.

    This does indeed look like a problem with VDPAU/libvdpau_va_gl1.
    What graphics card do you actually have?
    Is this an Optimus system (hybrid intel+nvidia) by chance?

    Hm. It shouldn't try to load libvdpau_va_gl.so if it isn't installed.
    Have you logged out and in again after uninstalling it?
    If not, do that and it should hopefully work.

    Logged out/in. No difference.

    So you get the same error message about "libvdpau_va_gl.so not found"?
    Then you still seem to have configured that to be used.

    What does this give?
    Code:
    echo $VDPAU_DRIVER
    Does it work if you run vlc like this?
    Code:
    VDPAU_DRIVER="" vlc

    Default SOLVED Re: tumbleweed/vlc/black screen

    I have uninstalled an installed libvdpau_va_gl1 several times. Easch time I logged out/in. Each times the related error messages were the same. I then rebooted. vlc now plays like a champ whether I double click on the various videos or open vlc first and then open the video file. I am at a loss to explain this.

    At any rate, thanks very much for all the help.
