Today I installed the updated 12.1-1.11 64-bit version from Packman to my 12.3 box and now the video just shows as vertical green lines. The audio plays for a short while, then the program locks up. To complicate the troubleshooting process, I also just upgraded to Nvidia’s 319.17 driver from the repository for my GTX 660 Ti.
I tested with a video I know played yesterday, which also currently plays in Kaffeine and VLC. I’ve also tried a couple different plugins (i.e. Ted Talks and Youtube), but with the same fatal results.
Any help would be appreciated, even if it’s just to reconfirm “wait for the next update.”
Please let me know if I’ve left out any vital info. Thanks in advance.
I am not an XBMC user, thus my remark might be dumb.
But in general, I do not understand why you (apparently) use packages from a Packman 12.1 repo on your 12.3 system. For every package I know of, I would think this being a big NoNo.
I can confirm that using openSUSE 12.3, kernel 3.9.1 and with nVIDIA driver 319.17 that xbmc version 12.1 locks up on video playback as a normal user. If you start XBMC as root, it plays videos just fine. That means there is a permissions problem with xbmc loaded as normal, but I am not sure whos fult the problem would be submitted to, but I think its an xbmc problem.
