Thread: VLC Opens 2 windows

  1. #1

    Default VLC Opens 2 windows

    I have installed Opensuse 42.1 i installed either VLC 2.2.1
    When i open a file it opens always 2 windows: one windows with the controls and showing the vlc logo, and the video opened in another window where nothings can be done...o options aviable, no controls etc....
    in a full video all as normal.
    What is that how can i have obviously the video and controls in a unique window?

    Another: if i close the video window, the audio stills go on
    Here an example

    in the forum of vlc they said me: That's problem with your package or distro then. Can't help much here.

    just wanted to add that this bug also applies if vlc is run in skinned mode
    is this a vlc or LEAP bug
    does this happen on tw or another Linux distro
    I have
    vlc-2.2.1-291.1.x86_64 from packman, what is the current Tumbleweed version, does it happen there?

    The vlc package is the same across all distributions.

    It doesn't happen here in 13.2, haven't tried TW yet.

    But it might be caused by the particular Qt5 version included in Leap (5.5.0 with some additional patches) or something else that's specific to Leap.
    An update to Qt5 has been submitted for Leap already (to fix VLC's video resize bug), maybe it helps with this as well... (but I'm just guessing)

    No, it doesn't happen in Tumbleweed/Plasma 5 (BTW nor on 13.1/KDE4).
    Leap 42.3 (ext4, KDE Plasma 5.8.7) ~ stable
    Manjaro (ext4, Xfce) ~ rolling updates
    Tumbleweed (ext4, KDE Plasma5) ~ managed updates via "Tumbleweed Snapshots" service.

    A silly question but if this is a LEAP qt 5.5 bug has this been reported to bugzilla or not?
    I'll go and search there.

    Good job, thanks for submitting the bug about it. I wasn't sure if I should or not, but I did mention it and link to screen shot in another bug thread of mine before the release of 42.1.
    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=950898#c5

    Didn't report it because I assumed it was only VLC related and wasn't sure how to go about reporting issue to VLC developer, or if it's Packman repo guy that needs to fix it, or what.

    I had the same bug, and after looking for information I found posts even from 2009 reporting this bug...

    Ultimately I didn't find any solution so I installed SMPLayer.

    Well, it's definitely not a problem with Qt5.5.0 itself or the added patches.

    I tried on Leap now (yes, I can reproduce the problem), and even after installing the latest Qt 5.5.1 packages from KDE:Qt5 (which I wouldn't recommend to try as you probably break your Plasma5 desktop) the problem persists.
    The same Qt 5.5.1 packages don't show the problem on 13.2 or Tumbleweed.

    Just for the record, I'm on Gnome not KDE, and have the same issue.
