    Exclamation Video display problems with players

    All my player options Smplayer and mplayer; and Vlc player dont want to display the video when played most of the time. Sometimes though they playt fine. I have tried many output options and x11 is slow, while xv works great when it works. I have to shut down and restart and sometimes it works, and sometimes I uninstall and re-install and get it to work...This time, neither is working. Any ideas will help. I am runing and optiplex mmx4 intell. Onboard video. Thanks for your help.

    Re: Video display problems with players

    M player is eating a ton of cpu over 80 percent and giving a bad allocation error, insufficent resources. I am running nothing else but the default op sys progs. What the heck is going on
    ?

    Re: Video display problems with players

    I thought it might be the post processing which I had set to max, and I turned it off, and its still the same. and after a reinstall of both smplayer and mplayer I still get the same error in mplayer.

    Re: Video display problems with players

    What if you disable the loop filter? In smplayer, go to Options > Preferences > Performance and try disabling it.

    H.264 HD resolutions and older Intel motherboard graphics can be a match made in hell. Your experiences are not uncommon. I bought an NVIDIA card at one time just so I could watch H.264 releases using VDPAU.

    Here's a fairly non-technical explanation that applies to smplayer: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1342634/vi...#post_20661217
