vlc player broke when try to move timeline

Postby Spinnifex » May 19th, '21, 19:03

Hello

I used vlc player on mageia 7 without problems. Now with magei 8
when I try to move the slider of timeline the video went black and vlc stuck.
Even killing the proc via system monitor is not enough to bring vlc back.
If you try to start vlc nothing happened.

Using KDE Plasma with nvidia driver and latest kernel.

Cannot reproduce, vlc works fine here. What codec does the video use, that you try to play? And what vlc packages do you have installed?
Code: Select all
rpm -qa|grep -i vlc|sort

If vlc cannot be started, what output do you get when you run vlc from a terminal ?

Hello

Code: Select all
rpm -qa|grep -i vlc|sort


Code: Select all
lib64vlc5-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8
lib64vlccore9-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8
phonon4qt5-vlc-0.11.1-2.mga8
vlc-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8
vlc-plugin-common-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8
vlc-plugin-flac-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8

vlc-plugin-theora-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8
vlc-plugin-vdpau-3.0.12.1-2.1.mga8


Before the last Nvidia driver update
I get an error
Code: Select all
Unable to create GLX

after that update to version 460
I now get this message
Code: Select all
[00007f2064ec8080] avcodec decoder: Using NVIDIA VDPAU Driver Shared Library  460.80  Fri May  7 06:47:34 UTC 2021 for hardware decoding

and I thought now vlc was stable.
But when I move the slider
Code: Select all
[00007f2064ec8080] main decoder error: Timestamp conversion failed for 5880001: no reference clock
[00007f2064ec8080] main decoder error: Could not convert timestamp 0 for FFmpeg

error.

This cause not vlc to stop. But After a while the video stuck.
For large files > 1GB sooner. For smalle files later.
But I was not able to see a mp4 video till end without stuck.
When vlc stuck there is no error or warning on terminal.

I wonder why this happen now. I never had problems with vlc with Mageia 7.

I'd say try again after updating vlc to the tainted version, enable the tainted release and tainted updates repositories and as root run
Code: Select all
urpmi --auto-update
to update to the tainted version of vlc.
Check https://doc.mageia.org/mcc/8/en/content ... edit-media on how to manage repositories.

But apart from that, gong by all your thread, you seem to have *a lot* of issues regarding your graphics driver ...
