    Default VLC video problem

    I downloaded VLC from packman repository by YaST . At first time after I installed VLC, it works perfectly but in the next times, or it can't show the video and just play audio or it show the video with interrupt . I tried some solution like this link, but it didn't works .

    Finally I tried another media player like Kaffeine in my opensuse and it works perfectly. How can I solve this problem with my VLC?

    what kind of graphic card do you have, buildin intel chips don't work with vdpau, if you have an intel card open vlc go to options and select va-api for video output
    you should also tell us your repo list
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Default Re: VLC video problem

    you don't seam to have the nvidia repo, so I guess you are using the open source novou driver
    that driver is lacking in features and is a bit buggy, install nvidia's driver
    #1 make sure all multimedia is from packman, even if it is doing this command is a good idea
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup --from 3
    you have packman twice remove one
    Code:
    sudo zypper rr 7
    #2 install the nvidia driver
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.1/ nvidia
    sudo zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG04
    reboot

    Important, 820m does that mean you are on a laptop in that case do not do step 2, for optimus laptops (all 2-3 year old intel laptops are optimus) you need bumblebee so read this page about seting up bumblebee
    #2 https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_Bumblebee

    having an optimus rig means you have an intel card too and as I said intel does not like vdpau, setup bumblebee so you can use your nvidia card if not you are actually using intel's on cpu gpu

    Okay, I did first step and I can't do second step, because I'm in iran and nvidia bycote my region but I go to the nvidia repository by my tor browser and download all files in that repo. One day I tried to install one of that drivers and after that my OS never up and then I reinstall my OS.
    Also my laptop is not optimus .

    if that is a desktop machine not a laptop then I can upload the nvidia drivers for you, just make sure it's not a laptop as the regular nvidia drivers do not work with optimus laptops and as I said the name of you card 820m makes me think it's a mobile ie on a laptop, for laptops you need bumblebee.

    edit
    if you don't mind doing the hard install you can find the regular nvidia driver online
    just search for
    NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-361.42.run
    you can use a vpn or this Firefox addon
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ddon/anonymox/
    to bypass country restrictions

    that means it's an optimus you can not use the regular drivers with it you need bumblebee
    see this page
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_Bumblebee

    I am on a desktop and I don't have experience with bumblebee maybe someone else can help
    do not install the regular nvidia drivers on a laptop as it will break the intel gpu use bumblebee
    that page is easy to follow the only difference for LEAP is the bumblebee repo, for the first step do this
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/Bumblebee/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/ Bumblebee
    the rest of the procedure is the same
