I’m trying to load up a DVD which is on my hard drive (so basically just a directory). Whenever I do this I’m given the error: “xine: Can’t init Video Driver ‘opengl’ - trying ‘auto’…”
This is on a Dell Inspiron E1705 with an ATi Mobility Radeon X1400. My xorg.conf file lists the device section as
BoardName "Mobility Radeon X1400"
Option "monitor-PANEL" "Monitor"
Any other info I should be providing?
Try the following in kaffeine: Open settings and choose Xine engine parameteres. Select video from the icon bar on the left. Select a new driver. Try Xv or Xshm. Hopefully at least one of them should do the trick. If that fails, check to see that you have installed the w32-codecs package from the packman repo.
That appears to have done it. Thanks.
Interesting bit of trivia: the version 0.9.0-pre-alpha (KDE4) doesn’t allow for changing those settings. I was only able to do so in 0.8.7 (KDE3).
if you are running the gstreamer backend for phonon you can change it by running “gstreamer-properties” and setting video out the driver that worked for you. If, like me, you are running KDE, then you need to install the gnome-media package to get the gstreamer-properties program.
