Fedora 17 86_64 video playback problems
 
Recently I moved from Ubuntu 11.11 AMD_64 to Fedora 17 86_64, everything works fine except one little thing that is playing video's.

I have the latest 64-bits kernel (3.4.2-4.fc17.x86_64), Nvidia 259,59 drivers installed from RPMfusion and Mplayer from the same repo. The problem is that the video's I play sometimes frees for a fraction of a second, something I never experienced with Ubuntu 11.10 (running the same software and hardware).

The computer hardware is a Asus P5K mainboard with an Intel Q6600 (Duo 2 Quad) processor, 4GB memory and a Nvidia GTS450 with 2GB memory.

Today I upgraded to kernel 3.4.3-1.fc17.x86_64, and we also had the appropriate Nvidia 259,59 upgrade from RPMfursion, with also an upgrade for Mplayer to 1.0.6-2.fc17.

The problem is still the same, it seems less... but that is probably because I get used to it... other people are still annoyed as I was first....

lspci |grep -i VGA
check if the model is support of nvidia driver's for linux!

With lspci |grep -i VGA I get

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 1245 (rev a1)

According to the Nvidia website, the driver version 259.59 supports my Nvidia GTS 450.

The Nvidia graphic card seems to work fine, if I run glxgears I get +/- 10961.390 FPS

what type of videos you play? .avi, .mov, .mpg ??? maybe you don't have a plugins ?
do you try with another playback like a xine ??

Dummy-in-Linux 06-25-2012 08:14 PM

Xine is not really on my list of favorite programs, also it uses the same Codecs as Mplayer (most at least) so I did not try that, but I tried VLC which seems to have the same problem.

Most of the movies I play are series I download, and some movies in DivX/Xvid or X264, it's not only related to HD movies...

Movie formats are mostly AVI and MPG. Overall the system performance is pretty good and I have nothing to complain except for that little thing that the video playback freezes one frame for a fraction of a second, some people will maybe not even notice...

playing movies on dvd
IS ALWAYS going to not be easy on fedora
please read the fedora mission statement

fedora will NEVER ship with patent/royalty encumbered software

that is
NO DVD playing by default
no mp3 music - by default
and so on


please fallow the fedora guides

Sorry to say this but, I use Linux for more than 10-years, I have all the relative repos RPMS-Fusion and a few more (nothing conflicting). My system is very much up-to-date...

@John VV
One problem I not have is playing DVD's, also my whole MP3 music collection works fine... mjmwired guide is nice for beginners
