[vlc] videos are black


I installed the proprietary ati driver some time ago and now the video screens are black, this with vlc, kaffeine and Ksquirrel imageviewer. I can only quickly move the window to see the video.

Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums

check the video output settings and try X11 (slow)

This is smplayer screen http://www.imagebam.com/image/c0c33c32552043
see the X11 option

Thanks, I followed instruction and it work now with smplayer set to X11. I have instaled vlc from packman but I can’t find any way to set it same way as smplayer. Should I install vlc from videolan or vlc beta?

Use vlc from packman
Here is the setting section

Thank you!
