#313 closed defect (wontfix)

xv output doesn't work for other applications after mplayer exits

I'm using Debian sarge on AMD Athlon with a NVidia Geforce 2 MX 400. When I run xawtv using the
xv output device, it works OK. I exit it, then I start the mplayer using the xv output device and it also
works OK. I exit mplayer and start xawtv again, but its window remains blank, just like when an other
application is still using the xv device. However, mplayer works fine if I start it. When I restart the X
server, xawtv works well again. Same happens with other applications using the xv output (e.g. ogle).
This bug wasn't present in mplayer 1.0pre6.

Try out which revision broke.

1, checkout mplayer
2, cvs update -r 1.159 libvo/vo_xv.c
3, compile

pre6 has the revision 1.158 of the file, the current latest one is 1.164. try
out all revisions inbetween, and report which failed.

Sorry, the latest one is 1.168, but 1.167 happend on 06/27, so you need to try
it until 1.166.

But first try latest CVS whether it works or not.

  • Resolution set to wontfix

This is mostly xawtv's fault, see:

I've did a cvs update a couple of days ago and now the problem is gone. There was an xawtv upgrade
too - that might have fixed the problem but I'm not sure, because he problem was also with ogle which
I haven't upgraded, but that problem is also solved.
