Using the latest CVS (050117) released for Windows, I'am expiriencing the
problem, that the activation of the Windows screensaver interrupts MPlayer with
the following message:

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video

  • MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM. Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
  • MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen. It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

Uninit audio filters...

It seems that MPlayer detects the activation of the screensaver, attempts to
kill it and that fails.
It doesn't matter if the video is played in fullscreen or in a window.

I hope this is not specific to my hardware. Anyway if you need to know more
drop me a message.

comment:1 Changed 15 years ago by reimar

It seems there is a break missing - I doubt it will make any difference but
please try it anyway.

comment:2 Changed 15 years ago by ttomjones@…

I tried but there is no difference.

Just to be precise, I'm now using dev-CVS-050213-14:08-3.2.3, with
'./configure --with-codecsdir=/path/to/codecs --enable-debug' followed by a

AFAIKS there is no action taken when the screensaver is activated.
I consider that the source of the problem.

I ran a gdb and traced the bug to the location depicted below.
However I suspect that is not the real source of the error.

I imagine something like:
coping from buffer to DirectX, w/o screensaver having destroyed the DX-graphic
context: works perfectly
and coping from buffer to DirectX, w/ screensaver having destroyed the DX-
graphic context: invalidates the corresponding DX-buffer / selector.

Please don't think I want to urge the issue but I encounterd quite the same
problem with an other computer.
This time not only the mplayer process gets killed, the whole machine is stoped
(blue screen in a display driver DLL).

First I could not link the blue screen directly to the mplayer program, until I
turned off the screen saver for some reason.
Suddenly the BSODs were gone.

Yes, the BSOD is in fact a problem of a buggy driver, but since it's avoidable
it would be nice to have the screensaver disabled while watching a movie with
