View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen Blanks out when video starts

Whenever I start a video in VLC or The Gnome MPlayer my monitor blacks out, if I open the video with Movie Palyer it plays just fine. I did just get a new widescreen monitor a few days ago.

I only loose a second or two off the video which with movies and such it doesn't matter a whole lot but for animations that are only a second or two long it can be a pain in the ASCII.

I'm using a Visiontek HD 2400 Pro video card (ATi knockoff), and I had just been experimenting with Compiz just before I found this problem. And I honestly can't say if it is the new monitor causing it.

And here is my glxinfo:
