vlc / only audio

Postby maximus1978 » 2018-11-25 23:54

I upgraded VLC on 2 of my Debian systems.
I am only getting audio.

Package: vlc
Version: 3.0.3-1-0+deb9u1

Code: Select all
QWidget::setMinimumSize: (/MainInterface) The largest allowed size is (16777215,16777215)
QWidget::setMinimumSize: (/MainInterface) The largest allowed size is (16777215,16777215)
QWidget::setMinimumSize: (/FirstRun) Negative sizes (-491607381,-491607381) are not possible
QWidget::setMinimumSize: (/MainInterface) The largest allowed size is (16777215,16777215)

vlc filename.mp4 --no-embedded-video

I tried from terminal and this worked but no controls available in VLC.

I think this is Video driver specific

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] (rev a2)

If video driver related, tell us what you're using! Install inxi, report the output of "inxi -G" as a standard user.

The usual problem is that VLC 3.X defaults to the openGL video output instead of 2.X's xv output, and your video driver may not be providing one ("glxinfo")
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.5 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc1, Pale Moon 28.2.2, Mesa 18.2.6, Midori 7.0
