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

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")

Code: Select all
env QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 vlc


I do not know why.

I added this to /etc/environment

Code: Select all
export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0


I rebooted once and it worked.

Don't run commands as root when nobody said to...that is a very dangerous habit.
