VLC opens only in system tray. Plays sound, but no video.

Everything about X, Gnome, KDE, ... and everything running on it

VLC opens only in system tray. Plays sound, but no video.

Postby ayasakihayate » 2018-05-27 14:57

This problem came up just after using aptitude to install security updates. VLC was one of the updates. I'm using Stretch with Cinnamon and only using Debian repositories in my /etc/apt/sources.list (main, non-free, and contrib).
I tried deleting the ~/.config/vlc directory and, when that didn't work, tried using the purge command from within aptitude to delete and re-install vlc. It will open to Cinnamon's system tray and play the audio track, but no video. These are video files I have been able to play successfully before the update.

This is what comes up when I try to run it from a terminal window.

Re: VLC opens only in system tray. Plays sound, but no video

Postby bw123 » 2018-05-27 20:02

I don't think it's normal to see all those errors from qt. Maybe I would try and reproduce it on a fresh user account?

I use VLC on both a tiny little fluxbox install, and also on a KDE plasma install. I got both upgraded to the new ver 3, and it's pretty good. I did have to reset a few things, and noticed a few issues.

On the icon in the tray, there should be a toggle at the top to show/hide vlc, have you tried toggling that?

Also, maybe run apt policy vlc* and make sure everything is 3.0.2-0+deb9u1 in case something got botched in the upgrade?

Maybe Cinnamon installs some additional qt pkgs, so you could try the ncurses vlc from cli, it's named nvlc it opens a separate window for video. Hit B to browse/load to a file, enter on it to play, q in the main playlist window to exit.

Good luck.

Are you using different icon theme than adwaita? Try with the default adwaita theme.

There's no official VLC icon in the tray; it changes the Cinnamon volume control icon to a musical note icon which, when clicked, aside from letting you change the volume, has the play, pause, stop, and skip controls.

I was able to play video just fine with nvlc.

So next, I tried creating a new user account. VLC opened right up the first try! But because I'm using a laptop plugged into a TV via HDMI, I wanted the TV to be the primary display, with the laptop display shut off. Once I changed those display settings, VLC resorted to the same behavior as before. Changing the display settings back did not fix the issue, however.

it does look like a Qt (that's the GUI toolkit) issue.
try setting vlc to use native skins instead.

Hi,
It is a setting in VLC ... So go under the Tools menu in VLC ... Select preferences .. here select the Video ... and where is written Output .. in the dropdown select X11 ...
Now normally after save and restart it should work ;-)
Regards,
JP

I have used opengl on VLC in the past, but on the new ver 3, changing the volume on kde makes the video blink on radeon with opengl. X11 output works about same cpu usage, no blinking.

I've been disappointed with opengl on stretch for awhile now. The issue with the disappearing control/video window with dual monitors sounds like classic windows/OpenGL behavior.

These are some of the issues I noticed. I also read stevepusser in another thread talk about the "Hardware-accelerated decoding" setting in Input/Codecs I never knew about this setting before. Might be worth experimenting with.

Radeon has had an issue with vdpau scrambling dvds for a long time, so I never install any of the vdpau pkgs unless I have to. They might be needed for other hardware though?

Dear Linux user,
your question was about 'Plays sound, no video' ... I did gave a solution for the video displaying, NOT about CPU usage !!!
Best regards,

This was not my question, but the answer to the missed tip. Your "tip" has a negative effect-a high CPU usage. So, the damn "tip" is null and void.

Did you try the XVideo video output yet? That usually uses less CPU than the slowest X11, and is what VLC 2.X defaulted to. 3.X tries to use the openGL output. Make sure you have xv output first with "xvinfo".

For what it's worth, I just got va-api hardware acceleration working with my bleeding-edge Intel Coffeelake laptop's graphics on a Stretch base, but it required:

backporting the build-deps for Mesa 18
backporting Mesa 18
backporting the va-api stack against the above, including i965-va-driver 2.1 from Ubuntu (Sid just has 2.0)
rebuilding ffmpeg against all the above
rebuilding mpv, vlc, qmplay2, and Kodi against all the above to get the acceleration working in those. Good thing this new laptop is a 6 core 12 thread beastie.

So you're saying that recent VLC upgrade on Stretch has broken native hardware acceleration? How didn't that count as a regression?
VLC was the most versatile player on Stretch for a lot of people. It played video far better than Totem for me. On Sid, though, Totem on Wayland tops everything.

Apparently the vlc developers figure that everyone worthwhile will have video drivers capable of openGL outputs by now, and the rest can just learn to adjust the preferences...

I think I started a thread predicting some issues the day Debian pushed the update, but apparently everyone just prefers to start their own thread.

to finally derail this thread:

i never quite understood why some gnu/linux users are so obsessed with VLC; imo, mplayer (and nowadays mpv) are much better solutions.
i think it's a remnant from their windows days...
VLC is really, really good, but we gnu/linux users simply don't need it and a native solution is better.

the only reason i still keep vlc around is because it produces clickable dvd menus.
but even for that i rarely use it, because mpv plays dvds just fine, too, you just have to tell it where to start.
