error while decoding MB 36 17, bytestream -5 VLC

Postby 4joeyirosh1 » 2018-08-16 17:22

Hi!I am running Debian 9.5 Stretch 64 bit.

I have noticed that whenever I am watching a video on VLC with full screen then a youtube video popup alert notification appears,the Debian hangs when I try to close the popup.

I am forced to press Ctrl-Alt-Del to recover my screen.

When I check /var/log/messages I get message below

org.gnome.Nautilus[1069]: [h264 @ 0x7f5dd0ca1d20] error while decoding MB 36 17, bytestream -5

Kindly assist.

I am not watching youtube videos on VLC.What I meant is that while playing eg an mp4 file on VLC,I have my chrome browser running in the background and since I have subscribed to some youtube sites,their popup notifications appear when these youtube sites release a new video.When I try to close the popup thats when debian hangs.

try enabling or disabling hardware accelaration in chrome.
try playing with vlc's video output settings, too.
you can also try disabling chrome notifications.

it does, however, look like a bug in graphic driver, and would be good to investigate further.
let's start with
Code: Select all
lspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d|display'
uname -rv
