Thread: VLC freezes

  1. #1

    Default VLC freezes

    Hi,

    I have set up and downloaded the packman codecs. I've also run the zypper dup command. The videos are playing fine in Dragon Player, but when I try in VLC, the player freezes after a couple of clips. I have started VLC from command line, and I get this output.

    Code:
    dagr@opensuse:~> vlc

    How can I search for the problem. Things worked nice before I reinstalled the OS.

    One wild guess:
    Try to uninstall libvdpau_va_gl1.

    If that doesn't help, please tell what graphics card you are using.

    Although, you could also try to set other video output modules in VLC's settings.

    libvdpau_va_gl1 wasn't installed, so i didn't do anything with it. One other thing. I have to start vlc from the command line. It seems to be something very wrong with the setup of the program. Now I got this error messages:

    The graphics card is a Radeon 6870.

    Radeon shouldn't use vdpau afaik only nvidia hardware has vdpau support
    I'd say check and see if you have the Radeon driver installed
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Radeon
    I think radeon has va-api support but am not sure

    VDPAU is a *software* interface (originally developed by NVidia), unrelated to the hardware.

    And yes, radeon does support VDPAU (or rather, libvdpau does support radeon chips).
    Code:
    $ zypper info libvdpau_r600

    Information for package libvdpau_r600:

    Description    :                                
        This package contains the VDPAU state tracker for R600.
    VLC does use VDPAU by default and the posted error messages are about VDPAU, so I'd suggest switching to something else in VLC's video output settings.
    (or uninstall libvdpau_r600, that should disable VDPAU on your system)

    In the output modules (settings) there are dummy, framebuffer, open GL, SDL, x Window, XVideo, YUV output, which should I alter or choose?

    Well, try all and see which work.

    dummy is rather useless though, as it provides no output at all...
    I would try OpenGL, SDL, or XVideo first.

    I removed libvdpau_r600, and VLC seems to run nice now, but it still comes some error messages:

    Does this mean anything except the VDPAU is not anymore there? Does it mean anything for the system as a whole?

    Ok, that "proves" that your problem is indeed related to VDPAU.

    Does this mean anything except the VDPAU is not anymore there?
    Not really, as far as I can tell.

    Does it mean anything for the system as a whole?
    Yes, hardware video decoding won't work, also for other applications.

    As I wrote, you could change VLC's settings (and reinstall libvdpau_r600) to restrict the impact to VLC.

    Other than that, you may try to uninstall drm-kmp-default, maybe it's a problem with the later graphics stack that's been backported from kernel 4.9.
    Or install it if it isn't for some reason.
    Although, I'm nor completely sure whether this could play a part here...

    Default Re: VLC freezes

    from those error messages vlc can't find libvdpau which is to be expected if you removed it
    it looks like you still have vdpau as the preferred decoder (afaik automatic defaults to vdpau)

    not my picture found it with google search
    why not try one of the other methods like va-api afaik it's supported with the open sourced radeon driver (do you have the driver installed?)
